Stay in one of our cosy pods and benefit from a few simple indoor comforts whilst staying in the great outdoors.

We have three types of pods – Regular, Family and Plus Pods, all of which contain heating, lighting, and mattresses.

All our pods are built locally, from wood and provide an attractive, dry, and spacious camping area. They have a window and are double glazed. They all have lockable French doors and are designed to cut down the noise made by heavy rain and offer a degree of sound insulation. They have sheep wool insulation inside the walls for winter warmth and a special foil layer under the roof to keep summer temperatures down.

Regular Pod

Can accommodate a maximum of two adults and one child. There are 3 tri-fold mattresses in this pod.

Family Pod

Family pods are suitable for up to two adults and 3 small children. There are 4 tri-fold mattresses in this pod.

Plus Pods

The 'Plus Pods' are the same size as the family pod but are fitted out to provide extra comfort:

The front section has 2 single beds with mattresses which are designed to be used as seating during the daytime.

The back section has mattresses for another two people which can be folded up to provide two further seats.

The pods are supplied with electrical under floor heating as standard and have a 'sub-zero' insulation pack.

There is plenty of storage room under the two single beds.

They are suitable for 2 adults and 2 children or a maximum of 3 adults.

Heating and lighting

Lighting and heating are provided in all pods.

What you need to bring

Think of a pod as a replacement for your tent. You'll need to bring everything you would bring if you were camping in your tent, except for your tent of course and mattress i.e. sleeping bag, sleep mat (if you'd rather put that on top of the mattress), pots and pans, stove, camping chairs, etc.
