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 two single beds 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…
Whether you’re into activities or attractions, there’s much to see and do crammed into this area: stick to the local villages and walking routes, explore the Lake District, take to the water for sailing and surfing, cruise around the coast or stride around the Yorkshire Dales (and bring your camera; these are all sites of spectacular scenery).
Cartmel village is popular with visitors of all ilks too: the twelfth century Priory Church of St Mary and St. Michael founded by Augustine monks is its most popular attraction, has regular events and concerts and sees over 60,000 visitors a year (there’s also a monthly food market in its grounds selling fresh local produce and goods). Cartmel Racecourse also pulls in big crowds for its size on its May and August bank holiday meets – and we did mention that Cartmel is the place to pick up (lots of) sticky toffee pudding…?
As well as Cartmel, those who want to leave the car behind will find enough in the area to do: famous Holker Hall and Gardens once belonged to Cartmel’s Priory and is one of the best-known historic houses in Cumbria. It’s within walking distance and there are more walks around its gorgeous gardens (the Cavendish Walk to the Sunken Garden is suitable for wheelchairs and prams).
The holiday resort Grange-over-Sands is three miles away, as are the seven islands of Morecambe Bay, including the nature haven Walney Island which has a bird observatory, two nature reserves and two sandy beaches to rockpool at. If you’re more driven, a car ride of five miles or so will land you at Backbarrow for the Lakeland Motor Museum and Campbell Legend Bluebird Exhibition and around 30,000 exhibits assembled over five decades. Ulverston, a market town with local produce on sale twice weekly, is also about five miles away.

From the manager...
Sorry that you had a bad experience but the fact is that the balance was due within 7 days after booking which was early October and as it says on the booking confirmation from Pitch up your booking will be deemed cancelled if this is not paid within this time frame.
Alas, no reviews for your selected filters. But reviews are brilliant - they help thousands of other people to find the right holiday. Be bold, be the first to review this site. It only takes a minute.
