Camping Pods in England and Wales
Stay in a camping pod and you keep all the great things about camping – the spirit of adventure, the feeling of being closer to nature, the romance of it all - but you’re better protected from the elements. Some of our pods are unfurnished so bring all your usual camping gear (except the tent) and some of our pods offer beds and bedding for a more comfortable stay. Please check the relevant hostel page for more information. Stay once and you won’t want to stay any other way.
Guests will have access to the hostel facilities including showers, toilets, self-catering kitchens and restaurants/cafe bars where available for the duration of their stay.
Our camping pods include:
Standard size pod: max. 2 adults and 1 child (not suitable for 3 adults).
Family pods: max. 2 adults and 3 children or 4 adults.
Camping pod plus: 4 adults – mattresses and futons are included
Megapod: 4 adults, all bedding provided
YHA have camping pods at several remarkable locations. We have various types of pod available and these wooden structures are insulated, have an electricity supply and some even a veranda so you can sit out and enjoy the beautiful view from this cosy little home-from-home.
Pods offer secure, private accommodation that’s insulated and has both heating and lighting – so they’re comfortable all year round.
