This concept is made up of three main areas, each with it's own accommodation category:

  1. The first category is three self accommodating "chalets" with 2x double or twin bedrooms (Z4) joined onto a shared living space with cosy stove and furnishings (Z6 common room) with a full private bathroom and shower area (Z4). These cost £30 per night, per head, in this model. Each of the three chalets sleeps 4 in beds and more around the fire or on a mezzanine level option for the Z6 living area. This configuration is ideal for small families or friends wanting to get out into nature.
  2. The second category is a dormitory or shared accommodation space with 4x double or twin bedrooms (4x Z4), 1 x full bath and shower room (Z4), a bio-kitchen (Z4), a shared living space with central fire (Z8) and an entrance hall for coats, boots and things (Z6). This configuration sleeps 8 in beds and more around the fire. These also cost £30 per head per night. Max capacity is 12 people (comfortably).
  3. The third area is the event space. This is made up of two 10 meter structures (Z6L - Z6 on it's side with some of the middle panels repeated) joined together along their sides to create a 7 meter wide and 10 meter long event class room. There is a space for a male changing room at one end and a female changing room at the other end (2X Z6) with joining shower facilities (Z4s) or a mixed changing room at one end and a ceremonial / domestic space with a central open fire at the other end (z6) with basic kitchen facilities. This space could sleep 20 in a "cub scout" or camp-bed fashion. The rate is £20 per head for this.

These are the basic assumptions:

And here are the basic inputs:

And here are the fixtures and fittings for an ecologically kind experience that provides for all of our basic needs and creature comforts:

At these prices:

The total capital expenditure for such a site would be:

Based on a worse case scenario of an average of 23% occupancy, please find the potential revenues for such a camp in the chart below (in light green) with the sub-totals for two years of operation in bright green. This is revenue before costs and tax.

Worst case scenario of c. 23% occupancy is revenues of £173,008 after less than two years. So the site would pay for it's self in less than a year.

For reference: maximum possible revenue at 100% occupancy and 0% discount is £791,780 after less than two years.

With these operating costs (monthly over two years - Community Camp is 'Camp 3' Highlighted in Green):

Would leave a balance sheet looking like this before tax for the first two years:

BALANCE = £75,517 after costs at 50% revenue sharing
