Peaks and Pods

The owners, Joanne and John have opened up a corner of their dairy farm between the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland. Three generations of their family live and work on the farm and they have put their hearts and souls into creating a bespoke, luxury 'glamping' experience for their outdoor-loving guests.

Their luxury pods are specially designed to be used all year round, with heating, insulation, double-glazing and indoor cooking. You will never feel the cold, or experience broken tent poles and soggy sleeping bags. This is glamping at its best!

At Peaks and Pods they welcome families, couples, friends, cyclists, walkers, countryside lovers and outdoor enthusiasts who want to experience an exciting new place to stay and the five pods each sleep four comfortably. They are kitted out with private shower rooms, fully-equipped kitchenettes, pocket-sprung double beds, memory-foam sofa beds, folding tables and chairs, decked areas, private outdoor spaces, fire bowls (for fire pits and barbecues) and picnic tables. You can even opt for your own private wood-fired hot tub at the Gold Top pod, which also comes complete with all bedding and towels.

Visiting cyclists will find first-class facilities for washing, repairing and securely storing their bikes on-site. Guests can even cook fresh pizzas in the stunning wood-fired oven (available to hire). There's also a little laundry where guests can wash, dry and iron their clothes. Guests can also relax in the vintage-styled covered social area at The Hub, with tables and chairs and feature lighting.

They work hard to be a 'green' business and are proud Green Tourism members. Electricity is provided by a wind turbine and solar panels, they encourage their guests to recycle, and they provide environmentally-friendly cleaning products in every pod.

They believe that it is important that guests can tailor-make their own experience, adding as many or as few extras as they want. Their extra choices allow every stay to be totally bespoke.
