We love sharing this special place with you; we've tried to add as much information and inspiration as we can below.


Glamping with kids

What’s the best pod for a 1 year old? One of our followers asked this yesterday which made me think they’re probably not the only one wondering this! We have a page on family glamping here but in specifically for you looking to bring young children, here’s a post of things to consider. 

Latest Covid update – January 2020

In light of the recent government lockdown announcement until ‘mid February’ we are keeping a close eye on when we are allowed to open again. 

Latest Covid Update – December 2020

We’re so relieved to announce that we’re in tier one and therefore will be reopening 4th December. 


Following the announcement by the government, sadly Ekopod will be closed from November 5th – December 2nd. 

New Guestbook for Ekopod

One of the changes we’re making for when we re-opening is removing the physical guidebook/ information book on Ekopod from our pods. So we have replaced it with an online version.

Covid-19 Update May 11th

After the release of the UK Government’s COVID-19 recovery strategy, Ekopod’s closure has been extended until July. As a hospitality business where it is easy to social distance, we are now working on the assumption of an opening date of July 6th. 

Latest Update on Covid-19

After the latest government announcement of 16/04/20 Ekopod’s closure has been extended until May 7th.  All of the rest of our policies are the same as before.
