There are numerous arrangements of our Camping Cabins and Pod Arches, but most commonly we call them The Rambler, The Camper and The Glamper. These camping pod style buildings are all manufactured at our Derbyshire factory in the UK.
The Arch has straighter walls which don’t start to curve until around shoulder height. This means that you can stand up right to the edge of the room without bumping your head. It also allows for stand-alone furniture to be used without modification as it will fit flush to the wall. More of the internal space is useable.
The Arches are available in a variety of sizes and can sleep between 2 - 8 people. There are a multitude of ways to fit them out including bathrooms and kitchens. They can be fitted with bunks or double beds or left empty for stand-alone furniture from a supplier of your choice. You can even just provide the space for your guest to camp in with them bringing everything they need, bar the tent itself.
The Arches are made using slow grown redwood and they are guaranteed for 10 years. If you are considering camping pods these are well worth considering.
The Arches can be anywhere between 2.5m and 3.4m wide. The maximum width is there so it can be transported on roads without a movement order and therefore keeping the delivery costs down for you. Length is commonly between 3.5m and 5m long. With this, it makes it possible to deliver at least 2 at once, again maximising efficiency for you.
In any size of Arch, a bathroom can be incorporated making it fully ensuite.
The Arches can be provided with or without beds. Depending on the size of Arch and arrangement of beds, you could sleep between 2 and 8 people.
According to official government guideline, the Arches can be technically described as a caravan because they are portable and are delivered in one piece. This may help with any planning permission.
If you are looking to increase all year round occupancy, the fully equipped Arch is perfect.
All the arches are the same basic shape but the Glamper has a larger, usable space compared to most camping pods on the market due to the straight walls.
The natural beauty of the Arches means it will sit in harmony with your rural surroundings.
There are a range of accessories available, including a short or long porch and we offer a bespoke design service, including the fitting of beds and bunk beds.

All Camping Cabins buildings come with our ten year manufacturer's warranty. This warranty guarantees replacement of any component parts should they be found to be defective within this period, however it does not cover accidental damage or weather damage once building is constructed. Customers should also note that timber is a natural product and prone to changes in appearance, including some movement and the occurrence of small knot holes or splits in extreme temperatures and weather conditions. Splits, knots or similar visual imperfections in the timber not affecting the structural integrity of the building will not be accepted as a valid reasons for a claim against our warranty.
This is in addition to our suppliers warranties/guarantees.
Roofing Shingles - we only use CE-marked Kerabit High-performance SBS modified roofing shingles which are guaranteed for ten years.
Any timber bases we fit are supported on "TANALISED" timber which has been impregnated with a preservative solution under high pressure in an industrial vessel. This treatment process ensures deep penetration into the timber cells, for a longer-lasting protective result against fungal decay and insect attack than the application of a surface coating. Pressure-treated timber is leach resistant, ensuring a long and trouble-free service life in a wide range of conditions, and assured performance in sensitive environments such as vegetable plots and areas of wildlife. Desired service lives range from 60 years for internal timbers and 30 years for external timbers such as fence posts in ground contact.

On our initial phone call we will establish the size and style of building that you are looking for so a CAD drawing can be created.
The next step is to come and survey your site and give you an idea of what you will need to stand the building on, we can advise you on different types of foundations and bases and give an idea of the sort of costs involved. Some people want to provide their own base and some want us to provide the base for them.
For planning we have an Architect (Ian Nelson) who can give you information regarding planning permission as well as deal with your local council if you want him to. Ian is an experienced Architect and is normally only needed to deal with the bigger jobs that come in but the choice is yours whether to use him or not. In most cases our Garden Rooms come within permitted development and will not require permission.
We manufacture in the UK because it is the only way we have found to get good quality control over the product that we send out. In the last 20 years we have dealt with companies from all over Europe and we find that working to someone else's timings (and being let down) means we are letting our customers down and this is not something we are prepared to live with. We started our factories around 20 years ago, we make literally thousands of buildings per year and we would love to show you around if you would like to come to the factories and have a look at how we operate and the quality that we produce.
We also think that British Manufacturing is something to be proud of and intend to continue making quality garden rooms and timber structures for as long as there is a demand.
Timber camping units have become popular over the last few years and can now be found across the UK, the popularity of these buildings in peaceful, beautiful environments continue to be a popular choice with families, campers, walkers, couples and cyclists and often tempt those who don’t camp to give this type of holiday a try.

As a leading camping cabins supplier, we are also able to offer finance options on our camping cabins and camping pods. We offer a wide range of timber buildings suitable for new and established campsites, holiday parks, leisure parks, open fields and glamping sites.
