Yurts Pods Octolodges and Tipis

Much has been written lately in the travel press about holidays in yurts pods and tipis and they have certainly been very popular this season.
For those wondering what a Yurt is (like us) it is a central Asian nomadic dwelling round in structure with a wooden frame.In other words a big round tent!
The great thing about the yurt is the level of comfort.You won't be needing a groundsheet or sleeping bag! This is luxury boutique camping at its best.
The Tipi or for those of us in our dotage a wigwam is the native American tent and you can get close to nature with one of these.
Pods are a new innovation to the Lake District and are another alternative to camping in a tent for those who don't want the faff of carrying bundles of equipment around with them.
