Cedar Tree Pods

Cedar Tree Pods, in North Wales, is a family business passionate about design, craftsmanship and quality.

Hi, I’m Mike Richards, the owner and director of Cedar Tree Pods. If you’ve landed on this page, you’re probably seriously considering investing in a glamping campsite or already in the business. I believe it’s important for you to know who you’re buying from, so let me share our story of how we got here and what we can do for you.

My journey started with glamping pods about fifteen years ago.  I began as a carpenter because I have a genuine passion for crafting structures from wood. Watching my father, a master craftsman, create beautiful kitchens, certainly influenced my career path, and one day, together we went to see a pod for sale, and the rest is history.

Family holds great importance to me, and I’m fortunate that my father, wife, brother, and daughter all agreed to work alongside me to bring my vision of building exquisite glamping timber structures to life. Today, we have an extended family of 20 working within our business.

When purchasing glamping pods, a few key points are crucial to consider. You need expert carpenters in the workshop who specialise in working with timber. The designs I create on paper must be flawlessly translated into reality. Whether it’s pods or bespoke lodges, our skilled team on the shop floor ensures that the design is brought to life while prioritising safety and durability. We build with commercial use in mind, knowing that your campsite will have heavy foot traffic, so our pods and lodges are built to last.

Design, craftsmanship, and uncompromising quality are my driving passions. At our core, we are carpenters first and businessmen second. We are committed to using only the finest materials and maintaining the highest standards because anything less would be pointless.

What sets us apart from other companies is twofold. Firstly, our exceptional design skills, and secondly, our ability to bring unusual timber structures to fruition and make your vision a reality. Opening a glamping business can be overwhelming, and we’re here to help you navigate planning, utilities, and marketing, offering our support every step of the way.

We provide nationwide delivery throughout the UK, and for locations with poor access, we offer a build on-site service.

Whether you’re seeking a single luxury bespoke build or a dozen high-quality pods to kickstart your business, let’s start a conversation today. Together, we can create something extraordinary.
