About Crown and Canopy - UK Glamping industry specialists

Welcome to our work studio

We are proud to present our work. These projects are built using latest technologies and best talents. The benefits of our building methods guarantee quality for many years to come.

We love design, that’s how we got here.

At Crown & Canopy we have extensive experience in the glamping business and have been involved in every aspect from locating and assessing suitable sites, designing and creating retreats to marketing and management. We are leading UK glamping industry specialists, offering first rate glamping consultancy services.

Since starting out in 2010 we have gained a wealth of knowledge around UK retreats, from treehouses to cabins, treepods to bell tents, which has developed alongside an emerging ‘luxury camping’ industry. We have worked closely with other industry specialists to ensure we stay at the forefront of the glamping world and provide services of the highest standard to landowners and organisations across the UK.

We are passionate about sustainability. We source and mill our own timber and employ local businesses and craftspeople with green credentials to create low impact, unique spaces and experiences on a range of glamping sites across the UK.

Our core values allow us to stay on track and innovate in design.

Welcome to our

Studio/Workshop

In the workshop, fields and woods is where it all began and where you can find us most happy and creative! We are a productive and enthusiastic bunch and we love our time making and creating. In 2018, we moved into our new premises with three times the amount of space! This has enabled us to take on new and larger projects and up efficiency. Unfortunately the workshop is still freezing though!

About us

Our Philosophy

Here at Crown & Canopy we are passionate about enjoying the great outdoors and even more so about sharing this experience with others. Glamping is a way to explore our beautiful countryside, reconnect with nature and experience a back to basics lifestyle with the comforts of a luxury hotel.

We need nature for our wellbeing. Children and adults get so much from spending time outdoors and as our lifestyle moves us ever away from the natural world, glamping offers a myriad of ways for couples, families and groups to enjoy time-out in wild spaces. The benefits to landowners are also significant, from the economic gain through diversification into UK retreats, to the satisfaction of sharing their beautiful land with guests from all over the world. Glamping is a flourishing industry with benefits for both people and nature and something that we are very proud to be involved in.

The research phase is important. We do our best to plan for every possible outcome which would affect the budget and timescale:
  • Cost effective, ensuring a smooth and continuous construction process.
  • We always get the best people in each field to work on each element.
  • We take pride in our products and creations

To provide a one stop shop of high quality services delivering sustainable low impact products to clients in fabulous locations:
  • We think outside the box
  • We enjoy working alongside clients to make their land viable
  • We want people to experience nature from a luxury environment

Each project, client and piece of work is very important to us:
  • We relish our work and take pride in it
  • We work with a broad demographic of individuals and businesses
  • We believe in quality over quantity

It’s great that we know each other now.
