People and pets

How many people can the pods and tents accommodate and how?add
  • The Argyll pods can accommodate up to 4 people in the same room: 2 in a double bed and 2 on a sofa bed. Probably best that you know each other well for this arrangement or you’re closely related.
  • The Glencoe pods sleep 2 people in a double bed. Good for a romantic weekend away as you have no choice but to leave the kids at home.
  • The Highlander pods have a dining table that converts into a comfy double bed and 2 bench sofas that can accommodate one person each. A great set up for a family glamping experience.
  • The Safari tent sleeps 4 and is also good for families as it has one room with a double bed and another with bunk beds.
  • The Deluxe Safari tents also sleep 4 and have a double and a twin room.
Are the pods and tents suitable for young children?add

Glamping is for children of all ages, however, common sense prevails when using the hot tub (keep an eye on them at all times and let them stay in the water for a maximum of 15 minutes at a time). They should also be supervised around the open pond area in front of the Argyll pods. Travel cots are available on request.

Do you have a play park?add

Children are welcome to use the play park at our sister company, Tralee Bay, a 5-minute walk from Highfield. The best play park in the area is the beautiful, long, sandy beach of Tralee Bay, again, a 5-minute walk across the road from Highfield.

Which pods and tents accept pets and are they allowed inside?add

3 of the Highlander pods and 2 of the Deluxe Safari tents are pet-friendly. (The Highlanders come with their own dog pod.) Pets are welcome inside the pods and tents but not unattended.

How many dogs can we bring with us?add

For your own (and your dog’s comfort), we can only accept one big dog or two small dogs per pod or tent.
