Two glamping pods influenced by the aeronautics world were installed in Black Beck Holiday Park, a Lake District (England) holiday park.
The 7.2 meter long Bleriot Plus pods manufactured by Knaresborough-based Anthropods can accommodate four people. They come with an all-kitted-out kitchen with a shower, a wet room, a heating towel rail, Bluetooth speakers, a media area, and storage space.
According to Partington’s Holiday Parks, the layout will consist of one king-size bed, and a sofa bed converted into bunk beds with innovative design and luxury finishes. The two new glamping pods will offer the perfect glamping experience for those customers wishing to re-connect with nature but keep those modern luxury touches.
For park operator Partington’s, which operates seven parks in the North of England, this is the first time they have installed luxurious glamping pods, a move away from traditional lodges and static caravans.
“We are the first Holiday Park in the Lake District to offer luxury glamping Anthro-pods, and we can’t wait to welcome our first customers this February,” said Partington’s park manager Lisa Ripley.
Anthropods was created by Rik Currie, who has been a pioneer of innovative design in Ford, Chrysler, and the Dutch state railways. Since its launch in 2018, it has attracted attention from buyers from Europe and the Gulf states. The company recently has seen an increase in buyers’ interest due to staycations driven by COVID-19.
“These latest Bleriot Plus 7.2-metre length models feature all the latest developments and refinements that make our Anthropods so popular. They combine LPG gas for heating and cooking, plus electrics for lighting and phone charging. We have included heated seating in the exterior porch/viewing area for the first time, complemented with a fold-down drinks table.” Currie said.
Douglas Adamson, chairman of Anthropods, added that any time of the year is excellent to take a break. Site owners are looking to extend their seasons and install products with long sustainable life and realize a fast return on their investment.
“Our pods meet these market demands with their revolutionary shape, green credentials, and trademark registered, leg design, that enables our pods to be located on sloping and uneven terrain.”
“We are also seeing greater demand for off-grid configurations, and new developments in technology for waste treatment and green power sources are making these a realistic alternative.” Adamson ended.
