Business Management

Description

A beautiful venue in the Scottish Borders wanted to improve their income by hosting weddings & events.

Key points

  • The vision was to develop the venue to be a premier wedding location using existing facilities & building on them with a beautiful new marquee.
  • The new marquee can also be used for functions & events & can accommodate up to 200 guests.
  • A new business relationship with Glampotel enhances the holiday accommodation potential for the Estate & also provides wedding guest accommodation.

 

What we did

We sought funding for the marquee & prepared a site that would provide stunning views for guests whilst enhancing the historic house.

We researched the Glamping market & its exclusivity, resulting in the construction of four luxury canvas glamping units.

Results

We have increased the number of Weddings significantly this year & have also increased the number of bookings for next year. The Marquee was recently used for a very successful Summer Fayre & has hosted numerous other public events throughout 2017, including organised children’s activities when the weather is inclement.

The marquee has become a crucial element of growth for hosting public events but ties in very successfully with the in-house catering & improved holiday accommodation on site.

There has been an overall significant increase in visitor numbers to the Estate as a result of the planning & provision of the marquee & the inclusion of the Glamping units.
