Glamping holidays UK, have seen a healthy and impressive rise as the nationwide trend has firmly taken off due to a whole host of appealing factors. The boost in people looking to stay in glamping abodes has certainly helped one business; sales at Catterick-based NY Timber have seen a tidy rise in sales.
Sales of their ‘MegaPod’, a compact static timber camping pod with all mod cons designed by Newfoundland Lodges of Kendal, have rocketed due to the increased demand.
NY Timber’s sales for 2015 are already worth over £500k.
When speaking to Business Daily News, Nick Kershaw, managing director of NY Timber said: “The potential return on investment is one of the attractions for site owners. Five MegaPods can be delivered to site for less than £100k, which is often the price of a fully kitted out lodge.
“As well as glamping holidays and weekends away, more people are taking to the outdoors to enjoy activities such as fishing, mountain biking, surfing and walking, and MegaPods provide great value stays in beautiful locations.“
Ian Bone of Newfoundland Lodges said: “MegaPods are fun and look great in the landscape. Because of their size they can make use of sites where traditional lodges just couldn’t be accommodated.
“They’re made by craftsmen from sustainable materials and they’re easy to maintain.
“Feedback from site owners and their customers is excellent on quality, value and return on investment.“
MegaPods come complete with shower room with toilet and sink, a double bed, kitchenette, seating area which converts to a double bed, heating, television and power points, window blinds and curtains.
