Holiday accommodation in the heart of the bustling and beautiful town of Callander

Luxury Pods

From 2021, guests seeking a more exclusive experience can choose one of our newly-built, luxury pods. These units are situated in the CYP Garden, providing all of our guests with an unrivalled view of nearby Ben Ledi.

This glamping option offers the perfect solution for guests seeking a little extra privacy, with each lodge boasting its own kitchenette and full en-suite facilities. Being located on the same site as CYP Hostel, the pods still offer the perfect combination of easy access to both the high street and the local countryside. 

No two pods are the same, with each having been built with its own unique customisations (detailed below). That being said, whichever pod you choose, you can be sure that you'll have the following:

  • A well-equipped kitchen area, with a fridge, a two-ring hob, a microwave, an instant boiling water tap and crockery.
  • A double bed (with all bed linen and towels provided).
  • A functional bathroom (including an electric shower)
  • Underfloor heating, to help ensure that your stay is comfortable all year round.
  • A covered porch, allowing you to sit outside and enjoy the spectacular view.

In addition to the above, guests can choose from some optional extras to help create the perfect getaway:

  • Food baskets - delivered straight to your pod. These include various breakfast options and celebration packages.


Whichever pod you choose, they all share a few common Terms & Conditions:

  • There is a minimum 2 night stay.
  • Regrettably, there are no pets allowed.

Ben Venue & Ben A'an

Perfect for couples, these two pods both offer the same facilities, although their layouts and decor remain unique. Unlike many glamping experiences, our pods come equipped with bed linen and cooking utensils, so that you can focus on enjoying your holiday.

Ben Chonzie

This eco-pod is ideal for any parents planning to bring along a younger child. In addition to the double bed, there is also a fold-out sofa bed to accommodate an extra person. Our booking engine does allow for a second child to be included in the booking, as the sofa bed is a double and so can be shared by two younger children. If you're unsure about the suitability of this pod for your family, please feel free to contact us for further information.

The Crags

This is our fully-accessible pod, complete with a Changing Places style toilet and Y-shaped hoist, as well as a variety of other features to help make it accessible to as many guests as possible. Our guests will be able to complete a form to make sure that any necessary adjustments can be completed prior to their arrival. We hope that this will help give peace of mind when planning your trip, helping you to be as confident as possible that the pod will be suitable for your requirements.

We've created a separate page containing all of the key features of our accessible pod (plus photos).
