    £78 is still too expensive for a shed and breakfast IMO.

    A very good question! If Staffordshire Moorlands District Council read this they may not be open for much longer. It sounds like some rules are being flexed here.

    I think some of the rules are interpreted by the local public health team so you do get a bit of variation across the country depending on their advice to Venues. I would put money on the council signing off on it.

    I believe you book a time slot for the showers. Assume you just use the toilets when you want though. I see no difference in using the toilet there and using the toilet at a pub or in the theme park.

    I visited and stayed at the stargazing pods recently and yes there is a time slot system for the showers and the toilets are free to be used whenever. There are staff outside the block manning them to ask if people have a time slot for when they go to use the showers.

    I think around the £80 is fine, and should probably be the standard price. It isn't just a shed in the middle of nowhere, it is a shed with a premium location, to expect any cheaper seems a bit wishful thinking.

    A basic room with on suite bathroom would be good value at £80, not a glorified wendy house.

    We stay at the chained oak, which is literally next to the park and costs only £10 more for a double room.
