Pod camping, any thoughts?

You know, in a little wooden pod thing? I'd link to it if I could make it work, but I can't!

Think of something the size and shape of a 6 person tent, but made of wood. Apparently you take absolutely everything else with you: airbeds, sleeping bags, stove etc. No electricity.

Have booked for a couple of nights as I liked the idea of camping without the stage where DH gets a right gob on struggling with the tent.

I'm very tempted to try one. I love camping and I love our tent but I would like to see what it's like without the putting up (and more to the point, the taking down and getting back in the bag) of the tent, and also, I'd like to sleep somewhere dark so that DS doesn't wake up at 4am.

HaVE seen these and considered them myself in a rash moment before concluding they are a cunning way for landowners to fleece mugs for £500 A Week for the privilege of sleeping in a converted hen-house.

ooohhhh... never thought about the darkness element! I wonder if they might sleep until 8? grin

I like the idea of a pod. Where are you going?

Just for a couple of nights to test the theory. If it's good, there's a lot of sites in the Lake District that have them. The only trouble is, as mollyroger says, if you're not careful you end up paying the same as you would for a self catering cottage, which slightly defeats the object.

Looks lovely. Maybe I can persuade ds that camping in a pod is still real camping!
