pod is quite like steering a car, and is easy for novices to handle with just basic tuition
Freedom Boating Holidays is proud to present Freedom pod, a brand new, exclusive vessel on the Norfolk Broads.
Offering probably the best day boat hire experience for up to eight people anywhere on the Broads, Freedom pod can also be used for simple, overnight camping (Flamping) for up to three people.
Freedom pod is a unique hire boat, designed to provide low cost overnight accommodation whilst offering the essential facilities for a night on the water. Don't expect bells and whistles - pod offers a unique but simple floating camping experience giving you direct access to the Norfolk Broads whilst remaining camping which is almost unique in itself as there are remarkably few directly riverside campsites anywhere on the rivers.
Flamping with Freedom is an inexpensive break; sure it's more expensive than a pitch at a campsite; but at a campsite you have to take your own tent, cooker, air bed or sleeping mat. You can't just pick up your tent and move it three miles away and pitch it up again either.
With pod, you can.

In recent years, there have been few developments in day boats and low cost overnight hire vessels. In fact, as you might expect, the majority of new boats being built by other boat yards are larger, expensive, plush boats purporting to have modern conveniences on board to make your holiday more like a floating apartment than a boat.
Freedom pod strips this all back to the minimum. pod is about boating. pod is about being affordable. It's like a rock band doing an unplugged album; it's still a boat, it will still get you from A to B; it's still comfortable and hugely enjoyable, but it's stripped back, aimed fairly and squarely at those who like simple things that aren't over-complicated and aren't expensive; in short it will appeal to those who like camping.
There are precious few river side campsites on the Norfolk Broads, but choose Freedom pod and you take your campsite and tent with you. Whether you moor up at a pub or in the middle of nowhere, pod provides all the essentials for a night of camping including a picnic table, loo, sink, hob, radio and bed for up to three people; not forgetting the tent itself.
pod is made in the same way as a £2000 per week cruiser. It is well built, strong and comfortable. Freedom is able to offer it at an affordable price because there are fewer fittings and it is very easy to clean and service; therefore our ongoing work required to prepare the boat for hire is low and this plays a key part in the pricing.
Flamping is inexpensive with Freedom pod. Our pricing is simple and offers amazing value for money.
