Enjoy a staycation at new glamping site near Gainsborough

As travel restrictions are still in place due to the coronanvirus pandemic more people are opting for a staycation this year.

And a garden centre near Gainsborough has decided to seize this opportunity and open up its own Glamping site for people to enjoy a great holiday close to home.

Rose Levick from Sunrise Plants, in Gainsborough Road, Saundby decided to expand her business and also look to make it more environmentally friendly.

Rose said: “The pandemic caused me to reconsider my own personal journey and the direction my business was going in.

“The pandemic was a very worrying time for most of us, and a lot of people have reconsidered the direction their life is going in, what is important and what is not quite so important.

"I live in a lovely place with a lot of open fields and was acutely aware not everyone is so lucky.

"So I decided to build the glamp site so that other people would have the opportunity to enjoy the lovely countryside that I'm lucky enough to enjoy everyday.

"Everyone's mental health was sorely tested in 2020, as it is a lot of the time for many people.

"I've found being among nature and with animals hugely beneficial during tough times and I know not everyone is lucky enough to live surrounded by countryside and animals. So by building the glamp site, it allows our guests to experience the joy of nature, the joy of this village, Saundby, and the surrounding areas.

"We've created an extensive digital guest book which features lots of information about the site and the surrounding area, and of course Gainsborough, Retford, Lincoln.

"We've so many amazing places to visit in this area and great things to see that we are proud to encourage people to visit.”

Over the last two year Rose has wanted to do what she can to help the enviroment.

She said: “If it encourages a few families to swap one of their foreign holidays for a staycation here, then together, we will have had a positive effect on the environment, not a negative one.”
