Ethos of Quarry Pods
Nestled down, in Dunsdon Farms historic quarry, our camping pods offer a truly great location to get closer to nature and away from the day to day hubbub. Local outdoor activities from surfing and mountain biking, walking and cycling are well catered for in the local area, and let us not overlook angling or just the opportunity for chilling out in a glorious natural setting with the birds singing or the stars above your head. After all, fast and convoluted modern lives sometimes need a big antidote. Quarry Pods at Dunsdon Farm offer an oasis of calm……a timeless and beautifully balanced space for living in the landscape…….Seek them out!
Waterproof & Cosy
Waterproof, cosy and sleeping up to four (in comfort), our Quarry Pods are available all year round. A step up from the traditional bothy, our Devon camping pods are camping with comfort.
Your Pod is designed to be comfortable – the special roofing material cuts down the noise of heavy rain and the window and lockable French doors are double glazed to reduce condensation and provide sound insulation. The wood used in the construction is a naturally ‘warm’ material but to provide extra winter warmth we have installed sheep’s wool insulation inside the walls while a special foil layer under the roof helps keep summer temperatures in check. There is a small, high level window in the back wall, this not only provides light but will help keep the living space ventilated and aid ‘through draft’ on hot summer days.
Quarry pods are probably best described as a wooden tent, simple enough in structure but able to be made into anything you want, whether you fancy transforming it into a luxury pad for the weekend or keeping it sparse for that ‘get away from it all’ week. Whatever the time of year, your Devon camping pod will be properly toasty and cosy against the outside weather, with double glazed windows and sheep’s wool insulation for the walls, and what’s more they, are all fitted with an electric heater.
Depending on your needs, you can have the basic pod to place your own bed roll (sleeping bag etc.) or we can provide beds, all pods have mains electricity, lighting and a cool-box. We call this comfortable camping, but some may call it glamping., or luxury camping.
For your comfort and convenience, each pod also has its own private (lockable) bathroom, with shower, sink and wash basin, situated in a block adjacent to the pods, so no shared showering facilities.
Heating & Lighting
Your Pod is connected to the electricity and we provide a small heater, lighting and a cool box for perishables. There is a roller blind to the entrance door, and a soft floor covering or carpet. We can also provide sleeping packs, which include an Aero inflatable bed (single or double) with duvet, sheet and pillow (extra charge applies).
Otherwise you can provide your own bed roll or inflatable mattress. You are able to request your sleeping pack and any other additions when booking. Our Pod Stuff page has a few good ideas for kit that is in tune with living in a Pod.
