As we bid farewell to 2017, it is time to review our performance over the last 12 months. There have been many ups and downs, great progress has been made by the Company and numerous guests have been served. For all our readers, here we will give an overview of how our year has been: -
Beginning of the Year
Our year started off early with our first guests arriving in March. Bedroam was hired for 18 wedding guests to visit Sledmere House. For those who don’t know, Sledmere House is East Yorkshire’s finest Country House offering a unique combination of art, history, architecture and glorious gardens. For over 200 years Sledmere House has captivated a lot of visitors and rightly so. Bedroam provided the wedding guests with a relaxed, private atmosphere making sure the experience was even more memorable and fun. Our journey to serving people continued in April where we welcomed our guests to the Bedroam Woodland for their glamping experience. Guests had hired the bus for a 21 st birthday celebration and what great merriments they had! Bedroam made sure guests had the time of their lives by helping them decorate the site and also arranging transport for them so that they could have a night out in York “The Jewel of Yorkshire”. All these memories made a flying start to our year.
During the Year
No feeling can be as good as serving the customers and spreading smiles all around. July marked the launch of our fantastic Facebook Glamping Giveaway. The competition literally became the talk of the town and received over 400 entries. Our lucky winner, Laura Cowling, enjoyed her stay in September and made use of the site in the best way possible by inviting her family and friends.
This year was also full of surprises as Bedroam also catered for a corporate stay welcoming Blue Logic Computers who are based in Leeds to our woodland glamping site. Everything was good except for the weather conditions. The summer season didn’t allow our guests to enjoy the lovely woodland location in its full glory. However, they still had a great time as they decided to party into the early hours.
Bedroam’s journey of providing convenient and top class services continued in the middle of the year when a group of people from London came to attend the Leeds Festival. Our guests wanted to arrange their own festival at the woodland site. We helped them with all the décor as well as arranging transport for them to and from Leeds Festival.
Our success continued to the later part of the year when our owner Ollie Kemp was given the opportunity to tour the famous Sunseeker Yacht factory in Poole. Ollie Kemp was smart enough to derive some great ideas to incorporate them into Bedroam.
Future Looks Bright
With a solid foundation laid by 2017, the future looks extremely bright for Bedroam. A lot of ideas have accumulated which will be incorporated into our business structure in the coming year.
The reviews we have been getting from our customers are very heart-warming and we aim to serve them in a more improved way in 2018. The messages of thanks we receive from our customers are our badge of pride that we love to wear with great honour. One review that we would like to share is:
“We stayed in Bedroam over Bank Holiday August weekend for my friend’s hen party. We hosted a private mini-festival with a musician on a Friday night and used it as our base before going to Leeds Festival on Saturday. The bus is amazing and Ollie was a brilliantly helpful, flexible and attentive host. Nothing was too much trouble, and he even helped us book transfers to and back from Leeds Festival. I honestly couldn’t recommend Bedroam any more highly. Such a unique and cool glamping experience.”
2017 also marked the success of our Facebook page where we crossed the milestone of over 2500 followers. With all the praise we have received last year we hope for an even better 2018. Our focus is now on improving our website by making it more interactive for the user. Moreover, we would also look to improve our woodland glamping site adding certain enhancements. Last but not the least, we will be looking for some new partnerships with companies who can make Bedroam a more comfortable and convenient experience for our customers.
