 Glamping pods Dunster HouseWe have used our many years of experience in timber manufacturing to design these new luxurious forms of camping accommodation – The Rasa Glamping Pods.

With the cost of overseas holidays becoming increasingly expensive, the UK camping market is seeing a significant rise in popularity. More and more people opt to enjoy what our countryside has to offer. A modern alternative to the more traditional camping holidays are being transformed however. With the growing trend of ‘Glamping’, or glamorous camping to me and you.

What’s Glamping?

‘Glamping’ offers a more luxurious alternative to sleeping in a tent. Whilst still providing a camping styled holiday for all the family to enjoy throughout the year.

This presents an ideal opportunity for more farmers to diversify their revenue through letting unproductive land. For ‘Agri-tourism’ purposes, with glamorous campsites that allow guests to enjoy the great outdoors. All the while being close to fresh produce and local farming markets.

Our new Rasa Glamping Pods are the latest in modern and luxury design. They could help any landowner or farmer to use their land and assets for tourism purposes effectively.

For commercial use we have designed our Pods in sections to enable easier mobility. It also means that our pods are not subject to building regulations. However for any farmer looking to use their land for Agri-tourism purposes, with multiple applications, planning permission will be required.

The Rasa Glamping Pod is a fully insulated building. The glamping pod is provided with our 12v DC off grid solar ventilation fan. Therefore it reduces the requirement of interior maintenance through unoccupied periods.

To suit the requirements for rural sites, we can provide a range of optional extras such as off grid solar lighting for off grid locations and a variety of outdoor cooking stoves for families to enjoy creating a barbecue whilst watching the sun set over the rolling hills and fields. We can also help to furnish the pods with timber built shelving, bed frames, tables and a decking system to provide an outdoor seating area.

Eco Composting Toilets

Our Eco Composting Toilets also present an ideal optional extra. They are ideal for many rural or remote locations and provide adequate facilities for off grid accommodation. These toilets are also suitable for ecological sanitation purposes as they can produce fertilizers and soil conditioners for growing plants.

For any rural landowner looking for an alternative or extra income stream in Agri-tourism, our Glamping pods offer a long term opportunity. The use of multiple applications as short term holiday accommodation can offer a payback period that could be as little as 2 or 3 years depending upon occupancy.

    I’ve absolutely no understanding of programming but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
