By popular request, our 'EscapePod' glamping pods - designed and constructed by our skilled boatbuilders at Waveney River Centre - are now available for sale, following a very successful first letting season.
They have an overall size of 14ft x 10ft including a decked porch and are ideal for use all year round, with their double glazed doors & window and electric heater. The Pods are wrapped in foil-backed multi layer insulation, to help keep them warm in winter and cool in summer, and sheep's wool insulation is available as an optional extra. Holiday customers have frequently commented on the excellent layout, warmth and use of space.
Inside, the standard fit out features a full size double bed above two single beds, a FreeView TV, LED lights, a double socket and loads of storage.
An Escape Pod not only makes popular 'glamping' accommodation - it's also a perfect garden building, office, workshop or studio. It satisfies the legal definition of a caravan or mobile home, so it can be sited within the curtilage of a house without planning consent as long as it is not used as a permanent separate dwelling. We do recommend that you obtain independent planning advice before purchase however, if you are in any doubt. In our experience, planners look favourably on this type of accommodation as it is seen as eco-friendly, sustainable and has a good visual fit with the natural environment.
The prices and specifications on this website are a guide based on our 'standard' Escape Pod. We can build them longer (or shorter) than the standard 14ft and can help you design an internal layout to suit your own needs. We can easily fit a toilet, or add cooking facilities for example. Or we can supply the Escape Pod in shell form for you to fit out yourself.
We can arrange delivery for you, but you need to consider how to offload the Escape Pod. They can be picked up with a hi-ab or a forklift with suitable extensions, or we can attach wheels to the Pod so that it can be rolled into position and the wheels can then be removed if required. Subject to ground conditions, the Escape Pod can be placed on railway sleepers, making it extremely simple to site with no requirement for a concrete base.
The size of the pod was perfect for three of us with lots of storage space. It is also very well insulated and the heater is most effective - we felt warm at all times.
