A pod in the Cumbrian countryside, on the edge of the Lake District National Park, near the Yorkshire Dales National Park and only three miles from the coast is what we call perfectly placed – and that’s before we add in its proximity to medieval village Cartmel, famed home of the famed (in our dwellings at least) sticky toffee pudding.
Cartmel Lodge-t is one of our wildlife haven sites, with locals like buzzards, herons, deer, badgers and rare flutterbys all spottable in the locale because of its mild climate and valley position (the park is also an award-winner for its approach to wildlife and its conservation policy, so if you’re a nature nut, ask knowledgeable owner Dave for good areas to spot).
The lodge-t on site is just one camping pod all to guests’ own very selves, meaning that those who savour solitude should find things sweet. It sleeps four in a double bed and bunks, and has a wetroom with shower, loo and sink; kettle, microwave, heater and Freeview TV, and even a safe to keep your stuff secure. Parking is podside for extra convenience.
Outside, plonk yourself down in the seating section for some plonk while drinking in the views; there’s a cooking area too to watch the other half dishing up dinner. For those who don’t think holidays are a time for cooking, there are two excellent food pubs, the Royal Oak and the Kings Arms, less than a mile away in Cartmel. Sweet…
