At Somerlap we're thrilled with the arrival of our brand new Igloo camping pods. The camping pod brings a new level to outdoor living: stylish and incredibly versatile (as an optional extra insulation can be added to the floor and walls making them even warmer). These charming pods are certain to add a new dimension to any garden, campsite or golf club.

Here's three ways you could use yours...

1. Create a spare bedroom outside

The Igloo camping pod makes a great outdoor spare bedroom

No room in the house? Give your visitors extra outdoor facilities and privacy with an Igloo camping pod. Beautifully made from natural Nordic Spruce and featuring two rooms (a spacious living area and a comfy bedroom), your guests will be warm and cosy in their stunning camping pod.

How to decorate: Add homely touches like curtains, cushions, rugs and blankets.

2. Hire the camping pod for glamping

Glamping camping pod

A camping pod (or three) can be a great investment if you've got suitable outside space. Glamping is becoming incredibly popular with those that aren't keen on sleeping under a thin layer of canvas, and a camping pod provides a great glamping experience. As well as a more sturdy roof, there's built in storage, opening windows, and secure lockable doors to keep your visitors' belongings safe.

How to decorate: Furnish your pod with hard wearing essentials like wipeable table cloths.

3. Create shedquarters

The office camping pod

Business not big enough for headquarters? Move into your very own 'shedquarters', by basing your business from your Igloo pod. The cosy tables and chairs make an ideal working or meeting space, and by moving your home office to the garden you'll gain that all-important distinction between home and work.

How to decorate: Keep furnishings minimal and remember to bring the biscuit jar!
