Ah Bless you, that's one of the nicest thingh anybody has said to me . :cry: :D

Seriously though. Need space for me, Beavis and Brocklanders. There are some pods at Inners which have bedding as I stayed at some at Mabie last year. Dont have room in the car for tents.

B&B prices £????
Pods are £35 a night.
Wigwam hut £???

Wigwams at GT (sound like the wooded pods at inners you are talking about ) are £40 per night + £10 perperson per night - they sleep upto 5 but are better with less I have heard.

B and B's are around £30 - £50 per night each but I live further north so don't have any experiences to share.

We are looking at accomodation and organisation soon so I'll let you know what we are doing.

Are the pods/ wigwams sound proof??

They need to be if Beavis and Brockhead are coming. Check out the YouTube link in the BDW aftermath thread to see for yourselves :lol:

:lol: :lol: Trust me after the drive up in the morning plus the ride I really don't think there will be a repeat of BDW.

The pods are dam comfy there lined with sheeps wool, have 4, 7ft long deep padded mats with room to spare. The one's me and the Mrs stayed in at Mabie were about 8ft wide and 12ft wide iirc. Oh and heating + mains electric. :wink:

The pods are on Mabie House's web site. www.mabiehousehotel.co.uk
