Try before you buy – Nordic quality glamping pods


Cabins, Logs & Pods Ltd is the official distributor of Astel Garden timber products in the UK. Based in Leyland, Lancashire, it is ideally geographically located to be able to serve the whole of the UK.

The business was established in 2019 through a shared love of camping and caravanning, staying on farming sites in particular that provided a unique holiday experience – with each having their own particular niche. With the impact of Covid-19 likely to continue for an undetermined period, Cabins, Logs & Pods Ltd believe that the interest in taking staycation holidays in the UK, for both main and weekend-type breaks, presents a real and tangible potential for the farming and country community.

From September 2020, the company is launching an opportunity for farming customers to be able to rent out Glamping Pods on a try before you buy basis. The Barrel Pods will be delivered to any site and can be moved around on the skids by any suitable tractor. The pods sleep up to four people and are capable of generating an income which could provide a return on investment within one season, subject to sufficient bookings.

The key to the company’s success is the close association with Astel Garden, who are widely regarded as the premier manufacturer of log cabins in Estonia. Astel distribute their product line around the world.

This association with Astel Garden enables Cabins, Logs & Pods Ltd to have real tangible advantages from both an order point to delivery, as well as enabling a competitive price point for direct business to their growing client base.

The product line is available from point of order to delivery in 30 days and where stock is available, 21 days or sooner.

All the company’s products are manufactured in the factories of Astel Garden, which has over 100 years of collective experience with the timber log house factory in Rakvere, being established for over 70 years – making it the oldest wooden house factory in the Baltic states.

The company are proud to have this kind of experience with Astel Group, because timber is the most sustainable building material available – and they have the knowledge to make it into high quality products for clients from around the world.

In addition to glamping pods, the company also provides larger holiday lodges capable of being used 365 days a year. With different wall profiles and insulation materials available they can easily provide a solution that will satisfy your proposed diversification needs. An example of a two-bedroom model is shown below.
