The Pods by the Stream at Flakebridge Farm: Relaxing in the hot tub

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 your pod's well-equipped kitchenette. The pods sleep four in 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 (the facilities are 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).

    Emma and Andrew were so welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. The welcome basket with lots of treats in was such a lovely added touch. My daughter was so pleased to be able to meet some of the lovely animals on the farm especially Troy! The pod is absolutely gorgeous and the perfect size. We had such a lovely relaxing time and the hot tub sure helped with this. Surrounded by fields and the open air with no one around was absolutely perfect. We will definitely be back next year.

    Had an absolutely amazing time here! Andrew and Emma were amazing hosts. The Pod was outstanding and had some lovely unique touches which made it the special resting place it is. The hot tub was perfect and even though we had a rainy weekend this didn’t affect our stay. Definitely one of the nicest places we have stayed and hopefully we will get chance to escape here again.
