Always wanted to try glamping, but worried it might be a little too crowded and noisy? You’ll be firmly converted after a stay in the quietly welcoming Mulino Pods, three private glamping pods situated on farm land featuring outstanding valley views, far out towards the tranquil Carsington Water reservoir.
Watch the sun rise slowly into the morning sky from the comfort of your private pod with its stylish French doors and outdoor decking area – perfect for getting back to nature, far away from the rush of everyday life.
The three pods are separately tucked away in hawthorn bushes, naturally creating your very own personal space – and you won’t have any trouble from your mild-mannered woolly neighbours…the farm sheep and cows that spend their time grazing in the surrounding fields and paddocks!
Damson and Bluebell Pods sleep 2 guests, ideal for couples while Lavender is a large, south-facing family pod sleeping up to 4 guests. (Damson and Lavender are pet-friendly if you have a well-behaved dog who’s also in need of a holiday!).
All three pods have quality built right in, with cedar cladding that complements the natural surroundings, and full insulation that will keep you cosy against all the elements. With the local environment firmly in mind, they also feature eco-friendly power and heating from the farm’s wind turbine.
Damson and Bluebell each house a double bed, while Lavender boasts a double bed and two bunks – all freshly made up for your arrival! Inside your pod you’ll find all the comforts of home, with superfast WiFi and sockets to keep your social media accounts fully updated, along with a fridge, toaster and kettle. On the decking you’ll find outdoor seating and a table for that all-important al-fresco cuppa, with a barbecue area and use of a firepit for when home cooking gets sizzling.Keep reading
