Drybecks Wood Cabins – The Lantern House

The Lantern House is the second of our takes on the Camping Pod concept. This is larger than the Wigloo, sleeping up to 4 and looks a bit like, we think, a traditional lantern, hence the name. Similar in size and shape to a Yurt with a large central skylight it is very light and airy. It contains a double bed, wood burning stove, double futon and fully equipped kitchen area with table chairs, electric oven, fridge and all the necessary utensils.

However many think that The Lantern House’s truly unique feature lies outside where we have converted a beautiful Kaldewei Kuatsu bathing tub. This is a large deep 600 litre bathing tub in which you can immerse your whole body without lying down. This tub takes it’s inspiration from Japanese bathing culture where the focus is as much on relaxing the body as washing. It has an armchair style design in which 2 adults can sit side by side for the ultimate relaxing bathing experience. The tub is heated via a wood burner. You can have a wonderfully relaxing bathe in the Great Outdoors. We even provide candles and bath bubbles. It stands under its own Gazebo style structure with a fire pit, barbecue and outdoor seating close at hand.  For more hot tub info visit our FAQ’s page

The Lantern House also has its own private compost loo just behind it saving a trek across the site to the communal loos. Again we have recycled reclaimed items to make even a trip to the loo a unique experience.

  •   I stayed in the Evelyn Gypsy Caravan. The charm and character was antique quaint, with warm blankets, and traditional quilts on the bed to snuggle and keep one cosy. The ambiance was that of a time long ago. There was lantern lighting. I would suggest...More

  •   We stayed in the Evelyn living wagon and had a lovely relaxed weekend, so peaceful and great distance between other accomodations. Steve was great and really helpful and friendly. We will definitely be returning very soon and trying the wigloo out.
