The Pods by The Stream at Flakebridge Farm
“A very well-maintained accommodation – ideally situated for exploring around Tebay and Ravenstonedale.” - VisitEngland Assessor
Imagine relaxing in a hot tub under a star-lit sky with a glass of fizz in hand… Guests at The Pods by the Stream at Flakebridge Farm can look forward to such an experience at this glamping site on the border between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. This is a family-run dark-skies friendly site located on a traditional working farm just five minutes' drive from the motorway but deep in the countryside. This means it's 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 their 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.

About the area
Cumbria's rugged yet beautiful landscape is best known for the Lake District National Park that sits within its boundaries. It’s famous for Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and Derwent Water, ‘Queen of the English Lakes'. This beautiful countryside once inspired William Wordsworth and his home, Dove Cottage, in Grasmere is a popular museum. Another place of literary pilgrimage is Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter, located near Windermere. Tom Kitten, Samuel Whiskers and Jemima Puddleduck were all created here.
Much of Cumbria is often overlooked in favour of the Lake Distirct. In the south, the Lune Valley remains as lovely as it was when Turner painted it. The coast is also a secret gem. With its wide cobbled streets, spacious green and views of the Solway Firth, Silloth is a fine Victorian seaside resort. Other towns along this coastline include Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport. Carlisle is well worth a look – once a Roman camp, its red-brick cathedral dates back to the early 12th century and its 11th-century castle was built by William Rufus.
