Top of the pods: Glamping huts pitch up in Lincoln

People holidaying in Lincoln will have a new way to stay this summer as Hartsholme Country Park gets its first glamping pod.

Set to be installed next week, the pod will offer sleeping for two, tables and chairs, a porch area and an electric hook-up.

The pod is handmade using birch and pine wood and was provided by Lincs Pods, a family business which has been in joinery since 1948.

Donald Nannestad, Portfolio Holder for Recreational Services and Health, said: “This is a first for Hartsholme, but depending on its success, it may be not be the last.

“Hartsholme Country Park is a lovely place to stay, and this new pod gives people a comfortable option if they don’t happen to own a caravan or motorhome.”
