A Breckland village could soon host a new tourist offering, in the form of two ‘glamping pods’.
Plans have been lodged to erect the two timber pods in a private garden off Low Lane in Rockland All Saints, near Attleborough.
According to a statement submitted by the applicant’s agent, the 6.2m x 3.3m pods would “provide subtle and discreet accommodation for tourists visiting this area’s attractions on short breaks and weekend stays”.
Each unit would have a double bed, ensuite shower, kitchenette and living area.
Parking for four cars would be provided and a footpath would cross the garden to allow guests to reach their pods.
The site would be open year-round and operated on a per-nightly basis.
“Patrons would likely be couples, families or friends split into the pods,” the agent’s statement says.
