- Quiet glamping pod two miles from Middleton-in-Teesdale
- In the North Pennines, 25 minutes’ walk from the Pennine Way
- Walk to shops, cafés and takeaways; views over Teesdale and Lunedale
With far-reaching views over Teesdale and Lunedale in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the luxury glamping pod at Highside Farm is as scenic as it is peaceful. Graced by spectacular dark skies for stargazing, surrounded by plenty of wildlife and tucked away from the rest of the campsite, the pod has a private and peaceful atmosphere, whether you’re after a romantic retreat or a peaceful getaway.
After spending the day trekking along the 268-mile Pennine Way, which is just 25 minutes’ walk away from the pod, snuggle up and stargaze (weather permitting) on the porch, which is completely undercover and provided with snuggle blankets. The decking has a bistro table, chairs and a dining set for alfresco evenings.
If it’s a little chilly, why not light the firepit and listen out for the local owls? The site supplies your first basket of logs and a starter pack for free. If you require more, they can be purchased on site (please don’t bring your own firewood).
Named after one of the local reservoirs, the Grassholme luxury glamping pod sleeps two people. It has been fully equipped with a kitchen sink, breakfast bear, full-sized oven, two-ring induction hob, integrated fridge-freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster and all utensils, pots, pans, mugs and glasses. There’s coffee, tea, sugar, cooking oil, vinegar, salt and pepper to get you started.
Simply put, this is an excellent getaway for those who want to sit back and relax and explore the local walks. Go birdwatching at the local nature reserve, Hayberries Nature reserve (five minutes’ drive) or cycle the day away too. The market town of Barnard Castle is 15 minutes’ drive away and Middleton-in-Teesdale, around half an hour’s walk away, has shops, cafés and takeaways.
Other features inside the pod include a two-seater sofa, a 30-inch TV with satellite, a USB charging point and wifi. There’s an ensuite shower with a hairdryer and heated towel rail (towels are provided) and a comfy double bed (bedding is provided).
Guests under the age of 20 are not allowed on site.
