Glastonbury Festival, Somerset
Product: Snoozy glamping pods
Supplier: Cube Modular, 01905 955814, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.cubemodular.co.uk
Details: The iconic Glastonbury Festival last took place in 2019 and returns in June 2022 after a two-year break. It is the largest greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world, located in a 900 acre site in the Vale of Avalon, Somerset.
Snoozy glamping pods created a luxurious pop-up accommodation village at Glastonbury in 2019 and will be returning in greater numbers in 2022. The environmentally low-impact, visually stunning pop-up units provide lockable, secure accommodation with lighting and USB power. The height adjustable galvanised feet ensure fast levelling and keep the structure off the ground for better thermal performance. A raised flooring secures the interior from any moisture and, along with its integrated LED lighting, helps to create a fresh-feeling, enjoyable space.
Remote 40th Birthday Party, Yorkshire
Service: Luxury mobile accommodation for up to 18 guests
Supplier: Bedroam, 07870 174477, email@example.com, www.bedroam.co.uk
Details: Bedroam provided the perfect additional accommodation for a joint 40th birthday party at a remote Yorkshire farmhouse. With the local pub and B&Bs already full with visiting guests, Bedroam was called to the rescue.
Some guests had travelled all the way from Austria and, as family members were keen to stay on site to help out with preparations, the main farmhouse was overflowing. Bedroam provided the perfect private escape, arriving a couple of days before the event and only requiring a park site location and power connection.
The large awning was a blessing, used to help store drink supplies and as a VIP chill out area away from the main action. The large fresh water tanks insured the hot showers lasted the full event and kept guests away from the main house services.
Customer feedback: Client, Marcus Freuis, said: “After speaking to Ollie we realised Bedroam was the perfect and best solution to our accommodation issue. Its two separate toilets and shower units were perfect and the 18 sleeping pods gave ample space for all our guests.
“The awning was superb for chilling and socialising while not around the house area. Bedroam has a superb layout and is finished with great quality.
“There was no need for taxis, no fuss, just a simple solution. I would recommend Bedroam and use it again, 100%. All my friends and family slept perfectly, praised the service and will definitely spread the word. Well done Bedroam and thanks for bringing my friends and family to me.”
The Masked Ball, Cornwall
Product: 18 two berth and two four berth Shire Huts
Supplier: The Shire Huts, 07846 282404, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.theshirehuts.com
Details: The Masked Ball is an immersive, multi-level party kingdom with ballers all dressed to excess in a venue carved out of the cliffs overlooking the stunning Mount’s Bay in the quintessentially Cornish fishing village of Porthleven.
Shire Huts provided 18 two berth and two four berth glamping huts for revellers. All huts come fully furnished including beds with 4” foam mattress along with a sheet and cushions, bedside unit plug sockets, bedside lamp, oil heater, coat hooks, rug, door mat, bin, mirror, bunting, key (lockable doors), bespoke stools and a welly stand. The beds can be made into a twin or double depending on a customer’s preference. Bedding is offered at an additional cost.
The Shire Huts is totally independent when it comes to the set up and take down of its huts. Its organised team loves what it does and takes great pride in making glamping areas inviting and magical. There is a communal fire pit set up in the middle of the hut site, which is a great way for everyone to get to know each other and become friendly hobbit-shire neighbours! Colourful festoon lighting is also run all the way along the huts.
The company arranges all the meet and greets with guests and is on call 24/7 during an event.
Feedback: “Staying with The Shire Huts is like spending time with our extended family. The huts themselves are magical, bijou, cosy and so much fun to stay in! Plus they are secure and have electricity – bonus! Hannah is wonderful; her customer service is second to none, though we have never had an issue in the five years we stayed in them at festivals. They even hire out for weddings! I know, because they were at mine and were amazing. I can’t recommend them enough for the ultimate glamping experience.”
