New Glamping Facility with Forestry Path Proposed in Bonnybridge, Falkirk

Signature Park Homes Ltd submitted a proposal to Falkirk Council in the United Kingdom, according to The Falkirk Herald news report. The proposal aims to transform a traveler site at Birchwood Farm, Bonnybridge, into a glamping facility.

In the Falkirk area, visitors can enjoy a plethora of recreational activities and outdoor attractions that cater to a wide range of interests. For those in search of tranquility and natural beauty, the region’s green spaces offer serene landscapes perfect for picnicking, or leisurely walks.

The application, validated on March 12, proposes a shift from the current use to a “rural enterprise site” that encompasses a variety of structures and amenities designed to cater to both leisure and educational purposes.

According to the report, the leisure component of the project features 11 glamping pods and 38 holiday chalets, designed to offer a luxurious outdoor experience. A forestry path is also included in the plans, which will likely serve as a recreational feature, allowing guests to explore the natural surroundings of the site.

The proposed development plan includes the construction of a courtyard studio building. The structure is intended to house creative studio and business enterprise facilities, offering a space for both artistic and entrepreneurial activities.

The financial commitment from Signature Park Homes Ltd to this project is a capital investment of £5.5 million planned over a five-year period. 

Additionally, an education building is part of the proposal, which will provide facilities for rural interpretation and classroom-style learning, aiming to enhance the educational aspect of the site.

In Falkirk, adventure seekers can also enjoy exhilarating activities, from hiking and cycling on well-maintained trails to exploring historical sites that dot the landscape.

The proposal includes the creation of up to 30 new jobs. This employment boost is anticipated to contribute to the local economy. Furthermore, the development is projected to generate an additional visitor spend of approximately £1.2 million per year at the site.
