Camping Pods

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 all of our pods even offer beds (or futon beds) and bedding for a more comfortable stay. 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 pods boast electrical sockets, a radiator to keep you warm and a small decking area, perfect for disposable BBQs.

Our camping pods include:

Standard Pod: max. 2 adults and 1 child (not suitable for 3 adults), bedding and three futon beds are provided.
Large Pod: max. 2 adults and 3 children or 4 adults, bedding, 1 double futon bed and 2 single beds are provided.
Large Pod Plus: 4 adults – mattresses, futons and bedding are included and there are twin beds and one double bed.
Large Pod Deluxe: 4 adults, all bedding provided along with a wet room with WC and shower, double bed and double sofa bed. Deluxe also includes a kitchenette area with fridge, sink, kettle, crockery and microwave.

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. All our camping pods now have beds (or futon beds) and bedding.
