Camping Pods: the convenient and cosy alternative to camping
Camping Pods are timber-built, insulated wooden huts specially designed to be used like a tent with the advantage of it being already being set up on the site, ready for your arrival and use. Pods offer a convenient alternative to the tent with all the ambience of a camping holiday, allowing you to wake up to the stunning views of Blencathra and surrounding fells.
We have 10 D-type Pods, these have two raised single bunks which provide a handy storage space below. The raised area at the end can serve as a lounge or sleep a further two people.
- 2 x single bed frame and mattresses
- 2 x Z beds which can be configured as a double bed, 2 single beds or as seating
- Carpet and 400w panel heater in the rear sleeping area
- Laminate flooring and underfloor heating in the front sleeping area.
- Electric lights and double socket
- All guests are requested to respect to our quiet site times form 10.30pm-8am
Two of these D-type Pods are in a separate area to the other Pods, and we allow one pet in these.
Pod guests will require all camping equipment except for their tent.
