Podpads offer a range of quirky luxury accommodation to suit different budgets, expectations and group sizes. Bedding and Comfort upgrades are optional. New for 2017: luxury options are available on all accommodation types.


Experience that smug, snug feeling of staying with Podpads – comfortable range of accommodation, free tea & coffee from the bespoke Reception during opening hours, 24 hour mobile charging and the Pink Pamper Parlour for all your hair drying and straightening needs. All set up in the secure WOMAD Campsite, near the Arboretum.

The ‘podpad’ – suitable for two adults. A small but perfectly formed lockable plywood structure with a solid floor and beds off the floor, with inflated air mattresses, creating useful storage space underneath. The ‘podpad’ comes carpeted with a shelf, mirror, coat hooks, three windows and is solar powered with LED lighting and 12v car dashboard sockets suitable for mobile and iPod charging (don’t forget your 12v incar charger). Podpads can be assembled with either a double bed or twin beds. 

The ‘belle pad’ – suitable for two, four or six adults across three sizes. Brightly coloured stripey versions of the traditional strong canvas bell tents. All sizes come with heavy-duty waterproof groundsheet, carpet and two, four or six campbeds as appropriate, providing comfort and underbed storage space. A windbreak comes as standard. Zip-up front doors and heart-shape windows with curtains keep you in touch with the Podpads Love. A range of internal layouts are provided depending on guests’ needs. 

The ‘luxpad’ – suitable for two adults. A lockable plywood structure, with solid floor and covering it comes with hand built beds, with slatted bases and foam mattresses to suit. Furnished with shelves, hanging storage, waste bin and coat hooks, this charming scaled up version of the traditional ‘podpad’ offers 50% more floor space and increased head-height. The ‘luxpad’ comes with 240v electrics, suitable lighting and spare 3 pin sockets for your use. Luxpads can be ordered with either a double bed or twin beds. 

The ‘bunk pad’ – suitable for up to four adults. Bunkpads are built with the same external structure as the luxpad, but are kitted out internally with solid wooden hand built bunk beds. The beds are fitted with foam mattresses and sheets, providing luxury accommodation for up to four people. As with the luxpad, 240 volt mains power and lighting is provided as standard.

The ‘octopad’ – suitable for up to four (possibly six) adults. A fabulous spacious five metre diameter structure with solid carpeted floor and a three metre high canvas roof fitted over tipi style poles. Solid wood beds raised off the floor, complete with foam mattresses and fitted sheets provide a luxurious night’s sleep. 240 volt mains power is provided as standard, equipped with multiple domestic sockets for any domestic appliance. Spot lights around the interior provide ambient lighting. The ‘octopad’ comes furnished with shelves, hanging storage, tables, coat hooks and a waste bin.
