These camping pods make for a great family break and they have space for up to four people to sleep in - including one double futon and twin single beds. Mattresses, futons and all bedding are included for your comfort. Each pod has its own individual decking area. Dogs are welcome to stay in our camping pods so bring your furry friend along with you on your holiday.

We allocate availability for exclusive use in blocks, typically up to 90 days in the future.
