In recent years, staycations, or holidays in the UK, have been on the rise.
Opting for a break away in the stunning English countryside has been a fantastic alternative to travelling abroad, and can prove most cost-effective too.
In addition, with the sudden return back to the traditional holidays within the UK, facilities and activities have also been given an upgrade to suit customer requirements.
A perfect example of this comes in the form of a new way of camping – introducing the innovative and splendidly fun camping pods from Holgates.
What Is a Camping Pod?
A camping pod is a wooden domed structure that merges camping with something a little bit more sturdy.
Encased with a wooden roof, camping pods offer greater protection from the elements, whilst also providing more comfort and warmth all year round.
The pods come furnished, meaning that less camping equipment is needed on arrival, and include electricity so that you can bring all of your home comforts with you should you require them.
Camping pods are perfect for the individual who does not quite find the idea of camping in a tent attractive; just bring everything you would except your tent, including your blankets and pillows and enjoy a peaceful night in the elements.
How Do The Pods Differ to a Caravan?
Although there are several benefits to renting a caravan at one of our spectacular sites, such as access to a microwave, oven, TV, bedding, toilets and showers, there are also several benefits of staying in one of our fantastic camping pods.
The camping pods offer a more traditional camping experience with minimal potential discomfort.
Unfortunately, English weather is synonymous with unpredictability.
This needs no longer be a concern with the rental of a camping pod, which along with having wind and rain-proof properties, also comes with a small heater to alleviate any potential temperature discomfort.
In addition, the pods are a stones throw away from the centre of the stunning Lake District, meaning that you can simply wake up and explore the world-famous local areas with ease. The pods are a perfect break away from reality with a difference and something that can be enjoyed by the entire family.
Where Are the Camping Pods Located?
We have camping pods located across several of our sites within Lancashire and the Lake District.
At our flagship Silverdale site, we have a number of camping pods available to suit everyone's requirements. The site is a bustling and lively park, with fabulous facilities perfect for the entire family. These include a 17m heated swimming pool and sauna, a fully equipped gym, a fun room for children, a brilliant restaurant and bar and even a bowling alley.
These facilities are also accessible for those staying at Bay View, which is expertly located in Bolton-le-Sands along the coast.
With camping pods also being available at Hollins Farm, another brilliant Holgates site, you are spoiled for choice when booking your next staycation.
