A pod, you say? Don’t mind if we do. Not only does it sound fantastically sci-fi, but a camping pod or holiday cabin is waterproof, cosy, can sleep up to five and is available all around the country, from Skye to St Austell. A step up from the traditional bothy, a camping pod is one of the more affordable glamping experiences and can be had all year round.

Micro Cabin in Finland A DIY project with a tight budget and using mostly recycled materials, this tiny cabin was designed for use after serving in the military and the owner/designer managed to stick to Finland’s strict codes for small houses and cabins. A brilliant use of 146-square-feet of space, don’t you think?
