The stylish pods take camping to an entirely new level with features including twin or double beds, sofas, flat screen TVs, heating and tea/coffee making facilities.  The pods are conveniently located within the grounds of the hotel where guests can combine the fun and quirkiness of camping with the luxury of a four-star hotel.  Complementing the pods is a range of luxury hotel facilities for guests to use.  These include:

Commenting on the new campsite Dan Yates founder of Pitchup.com said: “Old Thorns’ camping pods are a great addition to our range of camping and caravan sites.  They open up the idea of outdoor holidays to a whole new audience by combining glamping style accommodation with luxury facilities.  Old Thorns’ camping pods will no doubt encourage more people to consider an outdoor holiday - where else could anyone enjoy luxury spa and champagne facilities for only £37.50pppn?”

Pods start from only £75 per night based on two sharing and include breakfast in the hotel.

The pods are located within the South Downs National Park, an ideal destination for walking.  The area is also popular with lovers of classic literature as Jane Austen’s House Museum is located close by.
