Our Story

In 2020 Business Partners Niel Beckwith, a builder of 35 years experience and Diana Page of Wild Harvest Tipis and Activities and author of ‘How To Set Up a Successful Glamping Business’ came together to fill a need in the market for original accommodation and education spaces for the glamping and outdoor recreation industry.   Tipis is the theme, and we can provide canvas pop-up, traditional pole tipis and our new design timbatipi.  Whatever your need there is a tipi to suit.  From quick 20 minute pop-ups to a longer term, though temporary wooden structure.  We aim to be able to supply on a buy or hire basis from a one off loan for a show, social or education event, to a full suite of units for the glamping industry.  Call us  to discuss your needs.

Become More than just  accommodation

Buy your Tipis as part of a Wild Harvest Tipis and Activities Package.  Keep your own business name, but let us help you set up, then take our group activities bookings.  You can even train someone to offer our activities packages, in-house or simply have one of our trained crafts tutors come in to run the activities for any groups we refer to your site.  A full handholding package is more affordable than you may think and will cut out years of trial and error behaviour.  Double your glamping income with a group activity break affiliation with Wild Harvest.
