Do you like pigs? Do you like cider?
Then we may just have the perfect little getaway for you.
The Orchard Pig cider company has gone the whole hog and is offering fans the chance to get a taste of the countryside by staying in a fancy wooden pod built in the shape of a massive pig.
The bright pink structure, which can fit 12 people and sleeps two, is ‘the world’s first portable piggy home’ and comes ‘complete with all the necessities for a night under the stars’.
And though it’s based in Bristol, the quirky pod is fully mobile and can be brought directly to you wherever you want to stay.
Bookings for August open next week but it is also doing the rounds of the country’s summer festivals and was even spotted at Glastonbury last month.
Speaking to the Mirror, Rhona Fyfe, brand manager of Orchard Pig, said:
“Everyone loves a taste of the countryside, but we know its not always easy to get to, and the old-school camping experience isn’t always glamorous.
Is it a bird, is it a plane?

“That’s why we’re turning glamping into glamPIG – bringing flavours of the farmlands to wherever you desire, complete with sleeping bags, facilities and of course plenty of Orchard Pig Pink cider to quench your thirst.
“We promise that you’ll never experience anything like it – prepare for a night sleeping inside a giant pink wooden PIG – that’s something to snout about.”
According to the company’s Airbnb advert, the pods are perfect for groups and will have you sleeping like ‘pigs in blankets’.
“The piggy glamping pod is perfect for a camping trip for two, but can comfortably fit 12 inside – the portable pod will be brought to the location of your choice, and equipped with all the camping essentials (but not too many – this is about embracing nature and living the piggy lifestyle…).
“Your stay will include: full use of the piggy pod designed to have you sleeping like a pig in a blanket, fully weather proofed facilities with sleeping bags, festoon lighting, cooking equipment and soft furnishings provided – far more inviting than your average tent.”
