This was our first time in a camping pod and it was great. We stayed in a slightly larger family pod, myself, my husband and our 10yr old daughter. The pod came with 5 x comfortable filled mattresses, a heater, electricity and 2 x lights. A picnic table, bbq stand and storage box were also provided. With our beds laid out there was still room for a small eating area. The pod was warm, carpeted, secure and sturdy with plenty of room for my 6ft 2" hubby to stand up comfortably.
The site was lovely with fantastic views to Blencathra when clear. The loos/showers looked and smelt clean every time we used them.
A communal area was provided near the childrens play area which had seating, TV, magazines, microwaves and a fridge/freezer.
Breakfast barms, porridges or croissants can be ordered from the farm house the night before. Very tasty and on time as promised.
All in all a beautiful site, well maintained and away from the madding crowds.
One thing I think the pods could do with is a hook or two...just for hanging coats up. Everything else, fab!
Hope to be back there soon.
