THE LOG POD
are the ultimate green, ecologically desirable, environmentally friendly ‘glam’ camping experience. Log Pod camping is designed for Scandinavian, Newfoundland, Canadian North American and Continental Style ‘Glampers’ to beat the British weather. Each of these mini Leisure Lodges or “timber tents” can sleep up to 5 adults and children. Wired for lights, power and heating, the demonstration Log Pod also boasts flat screen TV and fridge options for ‘comfort camping’. Able to take low bunk beds, or blow up double / single beds, each enjoys a sheltered outdoor porch area for food preparation or just sipping a drink at the close of the day.
Mounted on 6 wheels for easy movement around a caravanning or camping sites, each Log Pod is made with a draw bar / towing hitch at both ends to facilitate accurate siting. While not a trailer tent, this enables camp and caravan site owners, farmers, homeowners and other land owners to use them as hunting, shooting or fishing lodges, backpacker bunk houses, kids playrooms or ‘Wendy’ houses, ‘twitcher’ hides for bird watching, simple extra accommodation for overnight guest visitors, and more besides.
Fitting easily into the planning and licensing requirements for holiday parks, permanent or touring caravan sites, and tent or camping grounds, their mobility also enables advantage to be taken of the 28 day rule for non-permanent siting of such units.
Easier to site, relocate and store than Camping Pods, Yurts, Log Cabins, Wigwams, Camping Huts, Tipis and the like, the mobility and elevation of these units enables otherwise wet or even flood plain areas to become usable rural eco-camping grounds for ‘Happy Glamping’.
Structurally engineered and manufactured by leading UK timber-frame manufacturers Benfield ATT, the fully insulated timber Log Pod has a strong integral chassis, securely lockable uPVC door and window/s, wipe clean wooden walls and laminate floor. The factory makes them really easy for touring camp and caravan site management and quick changeover and turnaround facility for backpackers, hikers, cyclists, bikers and other tourist users. For those with empty tenting or touring van pitches, the ability to move in a Log Pod almost instantly means that top level revenues can be maintained at all times.
Raised off the ground each of these timber tents, yurts, wigwams, mini-caravans, or whatever your favourite name for them is, is made with tube heater option, insulated floor, and instant plug in to on-site electrics. Each wooden Log Pod also enables site owners and campers alike to enjoy extended holiday seasons. This means that not only do Christmas and New Year become warm, enjoyable home-away holidays, but the whole of the winter too. Snow, hail, rain or sunshine, at typically attractive overnight rates of between £25 and £40 per night for up-to 5 occupancy; the Log Pod provides a really affordable camping alternative for the holiday maker or tourist. And with highly attractive and competitively low unit prices of between £5,850 and £4,750 + VAT (depending on quantity) the ROI on this camp site investment for anyone with a plot of land or woodland able to take even a single unit is astounding fast.
Devised and invented by Trevor Richardson in response to demand from his own small holiday park and fishing lake in South West Wales. And whether your camping site is in Scotland, Ireland, Cumberland, Northumberland, Yorkshire, East Anglia, Devon, Cornwall, the South Coast, Midlands or Wales, there is already an embryonic network of Log Pod sites enabling holidaymakers to find and book their stay or tour anywhere in the UK (Continental sites coming soon).
