Town centre camping pods – wooden it be nice? The locally crafted pods at The King's Head in Shropshire are in Bishop's Castle, an agricultural town now also home to an alternative community of arts and crafty sorts: you might like to know that the UK's oldest brewery is here too.
The pods are made just down the road from the site and are set behind the pub in the 'pod pound', an area covered in bark chips from the local surroundings and illuminated at night by security lighting. They're eight feet wide by nine feet long inside, are insulated for warmth in winter and coolness in summer, and can sleep up to four adults.
A lockable double-glazed door is at the front to give natural light and at the back, a small round double-glazed window helps to keep the living space ventilated. All the pods are carpeted and have mains electric, a small wall-mounted heater, two double sockets, a roller blind on the front door and a spotlight (another spotlight is on the front porch).
Within the pod pound, there's an menities block with ladies' and gents' toilet, washbasin and a communal shower cubicle.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
