Loveland Farm is a fabulous place to get back to nature, and go camping in the most stylish fashion possible. You can meet not only the abundance of indigenous flora and fauna but also owners Karina and Jeff's own menagerie of pigs, chickens, ducks and water buffalo! In an unrelated matter, you can purchase eggs and bacon on site from time to time. The Pod itself a recent addition that came from the sight of wooden pods hanging from trees in Canada. Another four pods have since joined in the neighbouring meadow.
The Pod's deck is, at points, as much as 8ft off the ground. It has a wood and glass railing but please still take care, especially with kids. Inside, Karina and Jeff's design background is evident in every aspect of the lovingly crafted pod. Although they dialled back their involvement with major brands when they moved to the country, they still have their own label, Griffin, and the Pod is clearly decorated with a professional stylist's eye. Lighting in the deck picks out the white canvas and the broad window that shows views of the river and the meadow below. To add the cinematic impact of the pod, you have a projector screen on hand for your own private pod-based movie nights! Your own kitchenette and eco loo are on the deck and just a few steps away respectively.
