we understand this campsite has traded since the 1950’s, has been in our clients tenure since 1997 and who are now selling due to retirement. The business trades from the End of March to the End of October and is run by our clients with up to 5 staff (4 full time equivalents in the peak season).
The business predominantly receives enquiries direct (accounting for 90%, with the remainder being online search portals). A major boon of the business is twofold Garrison is the only public campsite on the Island and does not have ‘walk ins’, all the customers are pre-booked as they are travelling via other means than their own transport, which operate during office hours.
The business is predominantly a campsite, with guests bringing their own equipment, although te clients do have 12 readi-tents (already erected and equipped for the guests) and in addition 10 electric hook ups for those requiring electric for wither a tent or a trailer tent.
There are up to 4 holiday letting cottages (typically 3 used, excluding The Tower).
