Proposal to Build Glamping Pods in Egremont Submitted to Copeland Council


Share this article

Copeland Borough Council (England, United Kingdom) has received an application to build four timber glamping pods at Ellerbeck Barns in Egremont.

The application also seeks approval to construct four on-site parking spaces, minor earthworks, footways, and associated drainage, according to a report.

The agent that manages the application, Glampitect Ltd., said that the concept of luxury glamping is now gaining popularity throughout the UK, with standards and guests’ expectations on the rise. The site operator intends to be among the best available in the area.

The agent also believes that the proposed glamping site will significantly benefit the surrounding area and local businesses.

“At the moment, there is little presence in the area offering this kind of luxury pod accommodation giving guests exclusive facilities. The only other ‘glamping style’ site situated in the area is Springbank Farm Lodges which consists of log cabins.”

If approved, the pods, each of which come with their decking area, will be rented out on a per-night basis, and the site would operate like a typical holiday rental or caravan park but with fewer visitors.

The agent believes that for this reason, it will cause less disturbance and noise compared to other similar sites.

There will not be any changes to site boundaries, but a new permeable track will be installed, leading to guests’ parking/turning area.

“The pods will be spread out across the site to allow for each pod to have its own privacy. Pods will be sited facing towards the North-East to allow guests the best view of the surrounding scenery. They will also each be given a generous distance to all boundaries and will be spaced out approximately five meters from one another,” Glampitect said.

The public is encouraged to review and provide feedback on all applications submitted to Copeland Borough Council for approval.
