Algonquin Pod Company


The POD is designed to be comfortable - the special roofing material cuts down the noise of heavy rain and the window and lockable French doors are double glazed to reduce condensation and provide sound insulation. The wood used in the construction is a naturally 'warm' material but to provide extra winter warmth we have installed insulation inside the walls while a special foil layer under the roof helps keep summer temperatures in check. There is a small, high level window in the back wall, this not only provides light but will help keep the living space ventilated and aid 'through draft' on hot summer days.

Most sites now have their Pods connected to electricity and so provide a small heater, lighting and possibly a cool box for perishables. At minimum there should be a roller blind to the entrance door, and a soft floor covering or carpet. Some sites provide durable mattresses for sitting and sleeping on.

Otherwise you will need to provide your own bed roll or inflatable mattress. It is best to ask the site what is provided when booking. If you become a regular user of Pods there is the obvious benefit of assembling your own camping kit that suits Pod living. Our POD STUFF page has a few good ideas for kit that is in tune with living in a Pod and we have also put together a few recipe ideas for inspired eating from your camp kitchen!
