Escape Pods

We opened our 'Esacape Pods' in 2018 and they have been a huge success.  With comfortable accomodation for 42 people, our pods are a great option for groups wanting the comfort and warmth of indoor accomodation but the adventure and freedom that comes with camping.  We have a large log cabin which provides an indoor area for meal times, a seperate shower and toilet block and lots of outdoor space. . We also offer a 2 night 3 day Escape Pod Package for schools and youth groups term time. This includes catering and an Instructor led activity programme.

Our Escape pods are available to hire self-catering only at weekends and school holidays for all 9 pods. We do not hire them out individually.
