The owners of Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism award winner Butt Farm Caravan and Campsite, East Yorkshire, have joined forces with carpenter Sam Atkinson to offer a new concept in sustainable glamping. Atkinson specialises in making buildings from locally grown wheat straw and has built his first glamping pod which will be showcased at Driffield Show before being installed at Butt Farm for the rest of the summer.
Owner Oly White said, “When Sam first approached us about making a glamping pod out of straw we thought it was a fantastic idea. We had previously considered offering glamping on our campsite but wanted something different, and this is exactly that. Having seen Sam’s other buildings, including his own four bedroom house, we knew that it would work. Straw is one of the best insulations you can buy so this pod really does offer year-round luxury glamping which differs from many other glamping pods. And to think the straw comes from the farm; well you can’t get any more local than that!”
The pod sleeps up to four and contains a fitted kitchen, bathroom with shower and toilet, double bed and pull out sofa bed. It also features handmade oak detailing and sheep’s wool insulation.
