Home Farm is a jewel of a campsite only an hour west of London, nestled in the idyllic Chiltern Hills near the picturesque village of Radnage in Buckinghamshire. Indeed, so pretty is the area that Home Farm is not unused to a camera crew or two (it is set to feature in the new series of a popular murder mystery programme, we believe!)
Twenty years young, the site is family run, welcoming and situated slap bang in the middle of gorgeous walking and red kite-spotting country. Even better, it is really close to an outstanding and cosy pub, with many more in the next village a mile away, so if you fancy a pint of something heady after wrestling with your tent, you’re in luck!
If the wilder side of camping does not bubble your crock-pot, Home Farm offers a spot of toe-warming glamping – 5 metre bell tents complete with double bed mattresses, single futons, chandeliers, rugs, internal wood-burning stove, firepit, BBQ and an ice bucket for the fizz… hang on, we feel an Anytime Booking mini-break coming on…
We asked the owner, Andrew Radford, what adopting the Anytime Booking software has meant for Home Farm as a business. Andrew lives life as a busy building contractor and property developer by day and campsite manager by night, so mounting admin was always an issue before he signed up to our booking and management package.
He says, “Anytime Booking has enabled me to keep the camp site open which may otherwise in reality have had to close. Being a small site, I could not give up my day job and was struggling with all the bookings at night. On top of this, taking the money and keeping track of it all was very difficult to say the least!”
Andrew continues, “Not only has Anytime Booking revolutionised how I run my business, and kept it open all year round, an additional and welcome bonus is that we have had a massive increase in bookings as people are now able to see if we have space and book and pay there and then themselves. Before, I was often unable to get back to them soon enough.”
“Keeping track of payments, receipts, who is on site and who is arriving are all so simple with Anytime Booking – the system even sends out directions and a map on its own!!!! What better service could you give to your guests?”
Having more time has meant that Andrew has been able to take things further for Home Farm as a business and work on factors that give them an edge over competing camping businesses. Some have even started to mirror what they do, which can only be taken as a compliment. Congratulations to Home Farm, another happy success story and thank you for choosing Anytime Booking to propel you to a better place!
