‘Luxury glamping in the heart of Suffolk’ is how the West Stow Pods peeps describe their pads, which sounds just stonking for those who like to combine mod cons with Mother Nature.
The roomy pods are set deep in the wildlife haven-heavy Suffolk woodland a mere five miles from Bury St Edmunds, with walk and cycle paths snaking all around the surrounding scenery and with an array of other activities in the area from canoeing to tennis to fishing (Larkwood Trout Fishery is just down the road).
Each mega pod has outdoor decking and a barbecue area – from which you can supervise the making of dinner while supping a glass of wine – and indoors, a double bed, sofa bed, wetroom with loo and shower, kitchenette with fridge, toaster, microwave and tea-making facilities. For curling up after a long day’s walking and barbecue supervising, the pods also have a flatscreen Freeview telly with DVD player.
Heating and lighting are included in the rate and there are electrical points handy for charging all your gadgets (we do not see why camping should mean leaving behind one’s hairdryer). The pods are designed to be comfy and secure in all weather: sheep wool insulation keeps them warm in winter, a foil layer cools things down in summer, and the double-glazed (and lockable) French doors reduce condensation and, with the specially designed roofing material, cut down any noise from heavy rain.
Remember to bring all the bedding, cooking and other equipment you’d normally take when camping – hairdryers optional, of course.

It's now possible to make group bookings on Pitchup.com for up to 30 adults and 30 children.
As long as the 'one unit per pitch' rule is not highlighted on the pitch type information (please check this before completing your booking), you will be able to pitch your tents together on one booking.
If you are not satisfied with the results generated, try breaking your booking down for more options. For example, if you're a group of 10, enter five people for your initial search and book two pitches. Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches or accommodation units: the campsite or park will try to grant your request. Click the 'Make another booking like this' button on the confirmation page to take you back to your chosen campsite/park listing page so you can make your next booking straight away. Please note the same dates and party size will be used, so you'll need to change this if the number of people or child ages are different.
Before booking, please check the listing page for any group restrictions. These normally appear in a section titled 'Please note'. Please also check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit - especially for a large party - is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
