The Owner Says

Our camping pod is sheltered from the north by a belt of trees and faces the morning sun. A grassy area in front of the pod features a campfire pit, outdoor cooking platform and seating. Solid and secure, the insulated pod has a solid door with lock and key. It features beds, an electric heater, power points, freesat TV,  electric kettle and toaster. It will comfortably sleep a couple on the 2 single beds, or campers can push them together to make a double.  There is enough space for a small child if you bring an airbed. Please note the camping pod is compact.  Alternatively bring a small tent to pitch close by for an older child.

A box of crockery and cutlery and pans supplied, also a single burner camping stove for use only outside the pod. Just bring your own sleeping bags or duvet and barbeque. Or hire bedding from campsite (extra charge).

One dog permitted in the pod (please select from the extras menu). Please note, it must not be left alone in the camping pod at any time.

One night booking £42 - 2 or more nights price £40. . In low season, March and april, and mid september and october we will offer a reduction in price for single occupancy  by direct booking with ourselves only.
