Whitemoss Lodge, Perthshire, Scotland
Dave and Lesley Morby’s newly opened bed and Breakfast, situated off the beaten track between Stirling and Perth, near the village of Dunning, was already onto a winning formula. However, they were looking to expand their business to incorporate more letting rooms, but extending the existing building would have been expensive and disruptive.
Pod Living were contacted to design and construct five Eco Pod ‘Hotel style’ rooms.
“Five Star in The Fresh Air”
The concept is quite simple, take the comforts and facilities of a high class Hotel suite that we all enjoy staying in from time to time. Then incorporate this into an Eco friendly structure which is quick to construct, can be place where the clients want, and be cost effective whilst not effecting the existing business and profits.
The pods internal floor area is 20m2, this includes a sleeping/sitting area, large bathroom with walk in shower, vanity sink unit and WC. They are designed to cater for Scotland’s inclement weather using a clever three stage insulating system, giving superb thermal properties. These products are made from recycled plastic. The pods will be warm and inviting in winter, yet also cool in summer.
Running costs will be kept to a minimum with the additional benefits of low energy LED lights and heating.
Externally a decision was made to clad the pods in Larch, a native timber of Scotland. Larch is an extremely versatile and durable timber which will naturally turn a silver lustre to blend into the surroundings. To contrast with the larch cladding we have used colour changing facias, which depending on what angle you view from, will display different colours and shades.
Since completing the pods, the feedback from Whitemoss Lodge’s customers has been terrific.
Here are just a few:
“The pods themselves are very luxurious with spacious shower and toilet”
“The double doors can be opened so as to feel the whole of the outdoor experience”
“Pod Heaven! Roomy, cosy and comfortable”
“The pods are truly amazing”
The pods are available to stay in, please visit:
