We really enjoyed our stay here at Beckstones Glamping Pods which is on a working farm. The pods themselves are roomy, have everything you need, are warm and comfy. Facilities include underfloor heating, en-suite, a TV and a good sized kitchenette. Outside there is a spacious decking area, a BBQ/firepit and amazing views of the Old Man of Coniston and Dow Crag. It was a delight to sit out on the decking or picnic bench next to our pod taking in the views, as well as watching the alpacas and inquisitive chickens. There is a lovely 15 minute walk from the pods through footpaths to the Wilsons Arms in Torver which serves good food and has a large marquee with garden. The proprietor was friendly and helpful when we met her and happy to give recommendations on things to do. Overall a fantastic break for us and we would recommend to anyone.…
A beautiful camping pod location with alpacas. We were on a walk and got slightly lost and ended up cutting through this private land. The owner was really helpful and friendly and gave us good directions to help us on our way. I’m glad we did accidentally cut through this pod/camping site as it is really lovely and we would definitely book to stay here on a future trip. Thanks again to the kindness of the owners.
Just stayed for 5 x nights and this was our second stay. Booked both pods and took our friends with us. They loved it too!. Spotlessly clean and the hosts are fantastic! A nice starter hamper with fresh milk in fridge is such a nice touch. Anna brought us fresh eggs whenever we asked and we cooked on an open fire most nights. Surrounded by Alpacas and we were fortunate enough to be there when 2 of them gave birth to babies! They are so lovely to watch. Will always make this our favourite place to stay in the lakes!
We were given two nights at Beckstones and stayed in Old Man, named after the peak behind it. It’s in such a tranquil setting with alpacas in the paddocks above and below. Just two pods to choose from, set in their own area with the ability to park next to your pod, deck, picnic table and brassier. We felt well welcomed but with no intrusion. The pod was spotlessly clean and with new equipment and linen. I’d highly recommend staying here.
Just returned from a two night stay with family using both pods. Spotlessly clean and comfortable with everything you could need, including a welcome basket and even a box of thoughtful things for our pup to use including food bowl, towel, blanket and treats. Lovely hot shower. Underfloor heating. WiFi. Anna was very welcoming and helpful. The bbq turns into a fire pit, so cozy evenings spent outside. Lovely walks through beautiful countryside…..what more could you ask for?
