Share this article

Farm owner Phillip Quinn believes his plan to build a glamping site could help the local economy and diversify his business, Ramwells Farm, Edge Lane, Turton (United Kingdom).

As per a report, he asked Blackburn and Darwen Council for planning permission to construct 12 glamping units with associated decking, hot tubs, and a communal area with a kitchen on the land.

If approved, the glamping site would be named Ramwells Retreat.

A supporting statement included in the application states that two phases of six units with associated works are intended.

The plot is situated just off Blackburn Road in Whittlestone Head and lies approximately 3.5 miles north of Turton.

The proposed glamping site will also provide subtle and discreet countryside accommodation for tourists visiting this area’s attractions on short breaks and weekend stays.

It will also include small single-story cabin units under four meters tall.

The proposal will create a significant economic benefit to the surrounding area and local businesses.

“The units will offer contemporary accommodation to visitors within a suitable travel distance from surrounding cities and further afield across the country, thus being suitable for weekend trips and short breaks,” the statement reads. 

According to the statement, the proposed glamping site will provide a new and exciting accommodation option for the area.
