Glamping trips to the Lake District: Discover our range of Pods


Cumbria is a popular destination for those looking to experience the beauty of nature and escape from the hustle and bustle. The Lake District is a stunning and picturesque part of Cumbria that draws in visitors from all over the world. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay nearby while on holiday, why not try glamping trips at one of our sites?

For those looking for extra comfort during their stay whilst remaining in touch with nature, glamping pods are an excellent way to experience this beautiful region.

New for 2022! Our Luxury Pods at Hollins Farm are now pet friendly, offering some of the best luxury pet friendly glamping near the Lake District to reserve now. We also have brand-new Luxury Pods with Bunk Beds arriving soon to our Bay View and Silverdale parks, within 45 minutes of Windermere and Bowness.

What is Glamping in the UK and why is it so popular?

Shorthand for ‘glamorous camping’, glamping allows you to keep some of your creature comforts while you are out in nature. Glamping is a new way of enjoying the outdoors and can be described as a combination of camping and luxury accommodation.

Glamping is a trend that caught on in the United States, before making its way to the UK and becoming a huge hit over here for those seeking an outdoor adventure with the luxuries of home.

Enjoy the best of both worlds by staying in a furnished pod whilst enjoying a touch of luxury. If you’re looking for an adventure on your next holiday but don’t want to give up all your creature comforts, then glamping is for you!

Glamping Trips in the UK

Across the UK, glamping sites often include electricity, central heating, double glazing and kitchen facilities with a fridge, microwave and hot water.

Our pod collection features are as follows:


As an alternative to traditional camping, standard pods provide a cosy choice for a family escape. Featuring a double bed base, foldaway table and chairs, electricity and a panel heater, standard pods require you to bring everything needed for a camping stay, minus the tent of course! Bring along your furry friends with our pet friendly options at Silverdale and Ribble Valley.

Our luxury pods are perfect for couples and young families, providing you with increased amenities such as a shower room and kitchenette. In the summer, the brick built BBQ allows outdoor dining complete with table and set of chairs. In the evening you can retreat to the double bed, complete with duvets, pillows and bed linen. Central heating & double glazing ensure you’ll keep toasty and warm.

Family Fun
