General

  • Family-friendly pub site with glamping pods
  • Set behind a canalside inn
  • Easy access to Sherwood Forest, Doncaster and Sheffield

Pet-friendly camping pods in a peaceful Yorkshire setting – and on a pub site where one can watch boats bobbing on the water of the Chesterfield Canal? All sounds pretty podding perfect.

Waterfront Glamping is a small, family-run pub glampsite in the quiet village of West Stockwith, where the South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire borders meet. This is a green countryside setting of walks and bike rides, fishing and golf, and with easy access to the cities of Lincoln, Doncaster, Sheffield and Nottingham as well as to Sherwood Forest and the legendary tales of Robin Hood land.

Set behind the canalside pub Waterfront Inn, the pods here are insulated and double-glazed, sleeping up to two adults and two kids. They each have a patio, outdoor furniture, fold-up double bed and a kettle. A shared toilet and shower is a short walk away.

Waterfront Glamping is a family-friendly and quiet site, so while there's a friendly vibe and beer sampling is encouraged, the owners request no noisy shenanigans after 10pm, please.

    The pods are a quirky way to staycation, they have their own little garden looking out on to the pub! You get wash/shower/toilet facilities included! The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly.

    The hosts were very friendly and helpful- nothing was too much. They kept the place clean, especially deep cleaning toilets regularly during Covid.
    Nice pub with good outside areas.
    Handy trunks to store stuff in. I booked because of the fencing outside the pod- ideal for keeping my puppy in. Showers were decent and powerful. I’d read a review stating that the WiFi was no good. I had no problems, and would watch Netflix on it on rainy nights . Pod was lovely and warm on a cool evening. Heater provided should you need it. Also a fire pit outside . Thanks for everything 😊.

    The pod was very clean the site was also very clean and tidy. The owners were friendly and welcoming and the Sunday lunch was delicious. We loved the experience of glamping it was our first time. The walk near the site pub along the canal was also enjoyable. We would definitely highly recommend this place and will re visit in the future.

    The location of the stay was fabulous. Lovely and quiet with access to wonderful walks along the canal and into the village. The owners were great, very friendly. The pod itself was clean and very homely, we particularly enjoyed the little garden outside of the pod where we could relax and enjoy our 'staycation'.

Local attractions

Waterfront Glamping's setting in the village of West Stockwith has it in a peaceful countryside setting, in a wildlife haven with walks and cycling all around, and easily accessible to towns, cities and attractions in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

Stay on site first to cast off with some canalside fishing followed by mulling over drinks, bites and boat views from the inn's beer garden, before a walk or pedal along the canal on the 46 miles of the Cuckoo Way from West Stockwith to Chesterfield.

Then it's very much time for some history: old settlements nearby include Gainsborough, seven miles away, the medieval market town with a fifteenth-century timber-framed stronghouse Henry 8 once waddled around; Methodism birthplace Epworth, within eight miles, and ancient cathedral city Lincoln, about 24 miles away.

Around with the kids? Zip along to Sherwood Forest for some legendary Robin Hood tales, the walkthrough wildlife zones of the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, or the Tropical Butterfly House, Wildlife and Falconry Centre just outside Sheffield.
