Drybecks Wood Cabins
Whilst Camping Pods have become increasingly popular on many sites around the country, at Drybeck we feel they are rather uniform and homogenous. However as a structure Camping pods are very functional and effective. So we have now put our own quirky and characterful twist on the Camping Pod idea with our own pods, or "Drybeck’s Quirky Cabins” as we call them. Built locally we think you will love them!
The Wigloo is the first of our takes on the Camping Pod concept. Looking a bit like a wooden igloo we have christened it the 'Wigloo'. Whilst being a portable building it is more substantial than a yurt. It does have a circular skylight in the middle of the roof like a yurt. It contains a double bed, wood burning stove, and whilst being ideal for a couple, it is possible to put in extra bedding for 1 or 2 younger children. In its first season there was a kitchenette inside the Wigloo. However for 2017 it will have one of Drybecks fully equipped cookhouses to the side of it for your own sole use leaving plenty more room inside. The cookhouse will have a hob / cooker, fridge, running water and a full range of utensils and equipment.
The Lantern House
The Lantern House is the second of our takes on the Camping Pod concept. This is larger than the Wigloo, sleeping up to 4 and looks a bit like, we think, a traditional lantern, hence the name. It is very light and airy contains a double bed, wood burning stove, double futon and fully equipped kitchen area. It is ideal for either a couple or family. It is especially suited to those wanting more privacy as it is quite a distance from Drybeck’s other accommodation.
