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

General

  • Luxury glamping pod accommodation 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 Pod 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 pod's well-equipped kitchenette. The pod sleeps 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 (in which chemicals are not used and 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).

    Our fabulous stay at Flakebridge Farm! It was just what we needed to get away and have a relaxing, peaceful time. Our lovely hosts Emma and Andrew couldn't do enough for us. The pod was amazing kitted out with everything you needed, we couldn't have asked for any more. When we arrived we were truly welcomed by the lovely Emma. We went in the pod and there before our eyes was a luxurious hamper full of locally produced goodies! Our daughter was so excited because there was a hot tub, a pony and some friendly sheep! Our stay went far to fast! We will definitely be coming back. xxx
