Small Business Sunday Event

Being an #sbs winner bagged us a free ticket to the #sbsevent2017, not only to collect our award personally by Theo himself but to listen to inspirational business stories from other like minded entrepreneurs.

It was a great opportunity to network and meet other #sbs winners. Throughout the day there were a number of interesting seminars to attend, we went to our domain name host '123-REG' which was excellent.

The question panel was hosted by some impressive names in business including Debra Meaden, John Mills (JML) and Theo Pathetis, who brought a huge wealth of knowledge and expertise to the SBS community. 

It was an honour to receive the award. BEDROAM is still learning the ropes with social media so was rather shocked to be selected and overwhelmed by the subsequent following and recognition. 

Thank you to all that follow us on social media, we appreciate your support and hope you continue to enjoy our service!

A look back at 2016

A look back at 2016

2016 has been another great year for BEDROAM, we have met some amazing people and visited some excellent venues.

Social media has helped boost business; we now have over 1600 Facebook followers. Our summer Facebook competition to win a two night stay at the lovely Allerthorpe Lakeland Park was a huge success. The park provided the perfect base for our winner Sarah Bashford’s young family to play safely and visit some of the many attractions the area has to offer. Thanks to the park owners Nicky and Steve for making it possible.

Twitter also proved a success when Theo Paphitis picked BEDROAM for its #SBS (Small Business Sunday) awards back in May; the award has given us great exposure and increased our Twitter following greatly.

It was also special to be featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces: The best builds which was a spin off programme looking back at some of George Clarkes highlights of the Channel 4 series ‘Amazing Spaces’. It brought a surge of interest and enquiries our way from all over the world.

Our bookings this year have been fantastically varied. BEDROAM was hired for a corporate team socialising event from our friends from Chatter Communications which was enjoyed by all. We hosted our first mini festival during the summer for a birthday celebration. This was a big task but everyone got stuck in and we managed to create the perfect woodland setting complemented by first class VIP accommodation of course! One of the weddings we did this summer particularly stood out; Steve and Natalie found a great location and wanted an outdoor ‘festival feel’ celebration. BEDROAM fitted the bill perfectly and the weekend went really well. Slightly hesitant, we also had our first set of Hen and Stags who behaved themselves extremely well and treated BEDROAM with the upmost respect. We helped arrange daytime activities including clay pigeon shooting, paintballing and even a woodland craft lesson! The feedback from all parties was really positive and it was good to be a part of all of the celebrations.

We would like to thank some of the local businesses that our guests have used.

Firstly to Saunts, a local, well-established catering firm that teamed up with us to help promote our business and provide a unique bespoke package for guests looking to make their stay that little bit different. Not forgetting our local butchers cafe which has provided all of 2016's woodland guests with some of the best locally sourced English breakfasts, thanks to the team down at Pig in the Willow cafe.

A lot of our woodland guests have found BEDROAM through Airbnb, so this year we have added some more great partners to our list. We now feature on the exiting new platform Host Unusual as well as another excellent company called Group Stays. With these new partners and some exciting new announcements to come, 2017 is looking really bright!

We would like to say a huge thanks to all our guests and everyone who has helped throughout the year. We look forward to an even more successful year in 2017!

Happy New Year from everyone at the BEDROAM team!

Woodland Glamping Weekend

Woodland Glamping Weekend

Last weekend (7-8 May) we welcomed 14 guests from London to our Woodland Glamping Venue which is conveniently situated near the historical city of York.
 
Our guests had a fun-packed 2 days; starting with a day spent exploring the many attractions York has to offer, followed by an evening of Birthday celebrations back at base. The woodland opening provided the perfect space to engage in both Cricket and Rounders'  before our guests enjoyed a BBQ and Champagne around the camp fire.  
 
The following morning was spent relaxing before our guests walked to a nearby village pub for Sunday Roast.   
 
This was the first time the Woodland Glamping Venue had been used with our guests returning to London in the evening.

The road ahead

2015 was a great success for BEDROAM so I’d like to thank all of our customers for their business and look forward to working with you in 2016.

As the business grows and our service gets recognised lots of new and exciting opportunities arise.

We have been introduced to interesting new events in a broad range of services from film and TV to Sport and Motor racing.

We have gained some Famous followers on social media with our old friend George Clarke and attracted the interest of the TT legend Connor Cummings.

The local news Look North also helped out earlier in the year by running a story about the creation and motivation behind BEDROAM.

Some of the highlights of this year have involved getting access to the running and set up of the biggest outdoor obstacle race in the country while supporting the ever expanding Rat Race Company.

Receiving great feedback and encouragement from guests has made going into 2016 an exciting prospect.

Some New Year’s Resolutions will include more experience days, wedding fares and events where potential clients can come explore, touch and feel what BEDROAM has to offer.

There are some new partnerships evolving in 2016 so keep up to date with what’s new by following us on our facebook or twitter pages.

We've got it covered

Being a new company and starting a new idea is difficult enough so when trying to find insurance, things weren’t straight forward. I had a limited time scale and a tight budget, other insurers refused to provide cover due to the complexity and concept of what I needed to cover. Steve at www.busandcoachinsurance.net was the first person to show interest and provide me with some options.

I think he even found it a challenge but in the end he managed to find a suitable affordable package. Hopefully by next year I can get all my insurance into one package and be confident that I’m getting the best deal around. I would recommend www.busandcoachinsurance.net to anyone with extra insurance needs, Steve always kept me up to speed on progress and replied to emails or calls straight away.
