About Edward Busby
Edward Busby grew up in rural Herefordshire where he developed a passion for nature and the great outdoors from an early age. After travelling and experiencing other cultures he built his first unique home on wheels closely followed by his first Yurt. This was his introduction to the world of bespoke living spaces.
From then on he began working in woodlands with a sustainable approach. After experimenting with a number of different ideas over the years, he began to develop different ways in which land can not only be used in a more diverse fashion to boost rural businesses, but also to help more people access and enjoy rural areas. This in turn lead Edward into the business of outdoor hospitality and events, setting up both glamping sites with Crown and Canopy and Starry Skies which is a family festival. His passion for land rejuvenation and getting people back out in nature was the motivation behind the business.
Crown and Canopy creates unique spaces ranging from shepherds' huts to cabins, yurts and wagons.
The business specialises in designing and building complete glamping sites, and bespoke spaces. It is based in the hills of rural Herefordshire where we have also created and run our own glamping retreats.
Crown and Canopy work with a broad team of specialist craftsmen from grounds men to interior designers to create a unique and tailored product. Crown and canopy also offer a consultancy service for people interested in setting up their own glamping retreats.
