For those explorers that want a cosy, glamping experience.

The Refuge

The Refuge is one of our classic glamping pods. If you’re looking for a bit more comfort, in your own space, The Refuge is the perfect choice for you. With more of a glamping feel, our larger glamping pod, Basecamp, is designed with families in mind.

Get in touch with nature, but keep the comfort! The Refuge is the definition of glamping.

Our little den ( LandPod) is the closest to the path and provides our most affordable option.


More akin to camping than glamping, it's perfect for couples who want a simple space in the woods. It’s perfect for those who want to explore the great outdoors, but love to come back to a bit of luxury to wind down. Inside you have to duck through the little door and you'll find a fully made-up double mattress, soft lighting, an electric socket and space for your belongings.

Glamping in Style

The outdoor space is vibrant with life - the perfect woodland retreat. You'll have a fire bowl to toast marshmallows and cook your meals on as well as a gas burner for those lazy mornings that you don't want to get the fire going. There's drinking water from the tap and a warm shower (shower shack) to revive the senses.

We provide bedding, towels, shampoo, firewood and more. You just need to bring the booze and supper so your getaway can be as stress-free as possible. If you have any special requests, let us know and we'll try our best to accommodate them.
