Some people call it 'glamping' but we think our Escape Pods offer more than just a glamorous camping experience. Our comfortable, cosy and warm pods are the perfect base for enjoying the outdoors as a group of family, friends or colleagues.

The space
Built in March 2018 - We have 7 pods which measure 5m x 3m and have 5 'proper' beds inside and 1 'luxury' pod with 2 beds, kettle and TV. There are also power sockets, heaters and plenty of space for storage. The shower block is 35 metres from the pods and has excellent facilities. New for 2019 we have a 10m X 5.5m Log cabin which can be used as a dining and social area. The cabin is warm and comfortable and has ample seating for up to 40 people.

Guest access
Guests are welcome to explore the surrounding forest area and have access to shared shower and toilet facilities in the nearby facilities block. The Escape Pods are located at the Thorpe Woodlands Adventure Centre which offers camping, accommodation and a range of pre-organised activities.

Other things to note
Our Escape Pods are owned and operated by the Thorpe Woodlands Adventure Centre Trust and located on the Thorpe Woodlands site in the heart of Thetford Forest. Although you will have exclusive use of the pods and the log cabin - you will be expected to share some facilities with other guest. We also require all guests to be respectful of each other and to promote and enjoy the peaceful forest environment - this is not an appropriate venue for parties, rowdy groups or stag and hen do's.
