Have just got back from a 2 night stay at Rivendale. Had a really fab time!!! We stayed in one of the camping pods. Wasn't really sure what to expect as we'd not stayed in one before, but what a wonderful alternative to tents!! - So glad my husband talked me into it!!!
The pods are like a small a timber mountain hut . There's nothing in them apart from a heater and light so you need to take everything as you would for a normal tent such as sleeping bags etc but the one really great advantage is that there's none of the messing around with guy ropes late at night in the pouring rain and because they're really well insulated, (apparently with recycled sheeps wool as I found out later ) we were wonderfully cosy and snug despite the freezing temperatures outside.
We were there during the bad snow and the park looked absolutely stunning!!! We walked down to the bar on site and had a couple of really nice meals which were good value for money and served in a nice, warm, cosy room with log fires.
Also walked down to Dovedale which looked spectacular...
On the whole we had a really great time.!! Wonderful site, fantastic location, great value for money and a magical time had by all..
