Nell card in the observer reports on Camping pods, they look a good idea if you dont want to pitch up a tent, or stay in a caravan?
I’ve always wanted to sleep in a shed. Years ago, I remember sweeping out the sawdust and scattered Rawl plugs from my dad’s shed, padding out our plastic red sledge with cushions and setting up a bumble bee hospital on the old scarred workbench. I never actually slept there (I was too scared, and it stank of white spirit), so when asked to spend a couple of nights in an over-engineered shed on a campsite in the Lake District, I figured now was my chance to live out my childhood fancy.
The ‘camping pods’ are at Eskdale Camping and Caravanning Club Site, which sits in a valley just outside the village of Boot
Each Camping Pod sleeps up to four people in a secure, heated wooden shelter. They are made from locally sourced timber and insulated with sheeps wool. The ten Pods have been designed to fit in with the glorious Lakeland countryside around Eskdale.
