Brilliant winter alternative to camping!
Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner, Gary who is very enthusiastic and friendly.
We were given the tour of the lodge and shown to our pod we were in. Having not known quite what to expect the pods are great. It's camping without the agony of putting up a tent in high winds and torrential rain. Our pod had a heater inside which was put on during the evening and heated the pod for hours afterwards due to the good insulation. The bathroom and showering facilities were also very good with good pressured overhead showers. We did not take up the offer for breakfast in the morning but with the visitors pack containing places to eat for the evening food was sorted for the night of our stay!. The experience was brilliant and I will be looking to do it again soon. Yes it's more expensive than traditional camping but the benefits far outweigh the extra cost. We didn't put up a tent, we stayed dry inside and we most importantly hadn't blown away in the morning!
