This is the Alpine Lodge Model
The camping phenomenon sweeping Europe - the natural alternative to tents and caravans
The Leisure Pod is the ultimate in outdoor shelter It can be a basic shelter, or a sumptuous and elegant holiday retreat.
What is a Leisure Pod?
It is an affordable solution to providing secure, dry and comfortable camping facilities. The basic pod is 4m x 2.5m inc the
porch and easily houses 2 adults and two children. It is 2.4m high - high enough for the tallest individuals to walk around
The Pod can be heated if electricity is on site and has French doors to the front that can be opened on a warm day and a high level window at the rear to allow airflow
during the night if required, as both are protected with fly-screens.
We have selected quality engineered windows as they afford more protection, are more secure and require no maintenance.
The interiors are clad with pine T & G board, and the exterior is covered in tile shingles. The whole building is
extensively insulated; including the floors which prevents heat loss and does not allow the cold air to penetrate. There are
a range of add-ons available for the basic leisure pod, including bed plinth, bunk beds, a fold down table, extendable sun
decks and verandahs. A field kitchen can also be purchased as an optional extra.
The model shown is the Alpine Lodge and we will be adding the "Mushroom" and "Wigwam" designs during 2010 and the photographs
of the models will appear on this page soon.
The benefit of installing these Pods are many and we have listed just a few that will attract guests to your site. The Pods
are delivered in one complete unit and placed in position by us on the site you have prepared. There is no need for expensive
bases to be laid as the base is built in.
