Going to the UK again today for a look at these adorable things…

They are called Atlantic Surf Pods and they are located on the north Cornish coast of England.

Staying in these types of pods for vacations (or holidays as the British say) is known as “glamping” – a glamorous version of camping. This luxury glamping site is just a mile from the famous surfing beaches of Bude.

Although the pods are off-grid, each one is a luxuriously appointed capsule with king-sized memory-foam bed, full insulation and in-floor heating to keep those bare feet toasty on chilly nights.

Each pod also has an individual deck area with gas barbecue and an external “wet room” complete with a toilet, hot shower and hand basin.

For those who dislike the deprivations of sleeping on the hard ground in a damp smelly bag,  glamping in these Surf Pods is the way to go.

Just another crazy-fun alternative to the boring box house!
