The Pods by the Stream at Flakebridge Farm: Rivendell Pod at summer time

General

  • Luxury glamping pods on a working farm in Cumbria
  • On the boundary between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District
  • Private hot tub, well-equipped kitchenette and ensuite bathroom

Imagine relaxing in a hot tub under a star-lit sky with a glass of fizz in hand… Guests staying at The Pods by the Stream at Flakebridge Farm can look forward to that kind of lifestyle, as this glamping site on the border between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales doesn’t skimp on luxuries.

This is a family-run site located on a traditional working farm five minutes' drive from the motorway but deep in the countryside, making it easy to zip around the best parts of North West England while feeling like you're in the middle of nowhere.

Each new arrival is provided with tea, coffee, sugar and fresh milk together with a gift hamper to make your stay that little bit more special. English breakfast kits with locally produced ingredients can also be bought if you fancy something hearty in the morning – easily cooked just the way you like it in the pods' well-equipped kitchenette. The pods sleep four, with a double bed and a sofa bed that's suitable for one adult or two kids.

Your accommodation also has access to a luxurious hot tub (thoroughly cleaned after every stay). You will also be provided with robes and slippers for extra indulgence.

Ready to come and explore the Howgills and their spectacular scenery? You'll find the site just off the A685, a short distance from the peaceful village of Orton (five minutes' drive).

    What a beautiful place!! We have had the best weekend visiting the pods, the farm is so peaceful and the pods were just gorgeous. Everything was so clean and well looked after, lots of nice little touches to make your stay the best it can be including a very generous welcome hamper filled with Prosecco and lovely local treats, robes, slippers, WI-FI and the comfiest bed ever!
    We met Andrew and Emma on arrival and they are so lovely, and made us feel so welcome.
    We stayed with our 2 children aged 5 and 10 who thoroughly enjoyed meeting Troy the horse and the sheep in the field next to the pod, the hot tub was a huge hit, especially at night where we sat and watched the stars come out, we were lucky enough to see quite a few shooting starts too!
    Whilst here we enjoyed a visit to Shap outdoor swimming pool which was a big hit with the kids, Brough castle and Ice cream parlour was fab, and as we had such beautiful weather we had a little paddle in Ullswater lake which was just stunning. We can’t wait to come back and visit again, 100% recommend anyone to visit this little gem. Thank you so much!

    We had a perfect stay here! Andrew was there to greet us when we arrived was lovely to hear he was originally from our neck of the woods. The pod wow it has all the mod cons and little extras which is a big bonus you really don't need anything extra but clothes, food, drink and yourself. They provide everything for you even a hamper which is first class, the prosecco was big hit with me and my partner and our kids loved the biscuits and fire colours. They are towels, robes, slippers, toiletries especially liked the moisturiser. Kids enjoyed having the option of WiFi when we got back on a night. Very luxurious pod if you like your comforts get this definitely is the place for you. You are so lucky at this place we had a day out in the Yorkshire Moors at White Scar Cave and Ingleton Waterfalls Trials is definitely a must then the next day we were up at the Lake District in the beautiful Windermere the views are amazing and highly recommend the cruises. We were so fortunate with beautiful weather, coming back to the pod after a day out me and kids loved a dip in the hot tub while my partner set up the firepit. We were fortunate to catch a beautiful sunset check out the views and pictures I have uploaded. Emma and Andrew are so lucky to have this place, with every detail in the pod you can see they work hard and strive on perfection big well done and doesn't go unnoticed! Lastly my children loved petting Troy the horse which was constantly next to us in the field (even asked if we could buy him for £100 out of their own money lol)

    Everything!!!! It was an amazing little place to stay. The surroundings were so peaceful and stunning to look at. At night the skies from the hot tub were outstanding. When I booked this stay I was sent a link so download an app which is fantastic with ideas on what to do and a great list of local restaurants and take aways. We received a text the morning of our arrival to let us know where we were staying and detail on how to find which was great. On arrival everything was ready and perfectly waiting us. Our pods was immaculate with everything you could need inside, including a hamper with some fantastic goodies!!!!! The bed was cosy and comfy, hot tub ready to go, fresh fluffy towels. The sheep and little pony provided some very sweet entertainment as we relaxed in the hot tub in the evening. We stayed two nights and wished it had been more. I was just such a relaxing and tranquil place to be, we would 100% recommend a visit! Thank you so much to our hosts!!!!!

    We loved everything!! The pod had everything you could want/need and more! It was clean, cosy and practical. Lovely little touches made our stay extra special, including surprise cupcakes for my boyfriends birthday, a happy birthday banner, bath robes, heated hot tub on arrival, tea and coffee, welcome hamper full of amazing treats and Prosecco, monopoly/top trumps games (Lake District edition!) The list could go on…
    The location is ideal for exploring the Lake District/Yorkshire Dales and we enjoyed saying hi to our friendly neighbours, especially Troy the Shetland Pony!!
    You can tell a lot of thought goes into making sure everyone’s stay is perfect and Emma is more than happy to go the extra mile for you!
    Thank you for an amazing stay and we will hopefully be back soon!

    It was absolutely beautiful, the location is fab, the pods are luxurious and they have thought of everything you could possibly need for your stay. The hot tub was great and the outdoor space fantastic. Everything was pristinely clean and could not fault a thing. And how amazing to have a pony and two sheep just over the fence to welcome us! We got a welcome pack full of goodies for our stay which was great. Also as it was our anniversary Emma has so kindly decorated the pod with a banner, balloons and some delicious cupcakes, which was such a lovely touch. Would highly recommend.

    I loved everything about this place (well, except the fight I had with night time moths! Hehe).
    I travelled solo to Flakebridge Farm and I felt very safe and secure in the grounds.
    From the moment I arrived Emma was there to greet me and was only ever a quick message away if I needed to ask anything.
    There's nothing they haven't thought of; everything you need is right there from the welcome pack with lots of local info in too, everything in between, to the 'Wine honesty box' if you were to run out!
    There's plenty to do around the area, near and far, but the Pod is perfect enough not to have to venture anywhere!
    It's a very peaceful place and I would definitely suggest a visit, you would go back, as I am, with my two daughters next time...I've already booked!...besides I have to see my new 'mates' again!...the Valais Black Face Sheep and 'Troy' the Shetland Pony of course!! I even got to help Emma's son, Liam, feed them. He was a very knowledgeable and friendly lad who is a credit to his family.
    Thanks so much Emma, Andrew and family for all the hard work and passion you put into this place to make it perfect for your guests, I know you really care x
