Why choose a Whitby camping pod!

Camping is an extremely popular choice of accommodation when it comes to holidaying. It is not, however, for everyone.

That’s not to mention the thought of spending the night with creepy crawlies also looking for somewhere dry to sleep!

The camping pod is the perfect answer to this. You get all the joys of camping and going back to nature without any of the fuss. Camping pods are solid buildings made of wood that have the luxuries of electric power, lighting, heating and sometimes beds and bathrooms. It’s luxury camping, five star all the way and Whitby offers some of the finest.
