Settle, North Yorkshire
Beautiful camping pods, with luxe extras, nestled on the edge of the seriously stunning Yorkshire Dales.
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
Peaks and Pods is owned and managed by John and Joanne Brennand.
Gloriously positioned on a small dairy farm in North Yorkshire, these five camping pods are in a league of their own. These cedar-clad beauties boast panoramic views, well-appointed terraces and comfortable double beds. And all the camping pods also have their own private bathrooms (either en suite or just a short stroll away) as standard. But the luxury doesn’t stop there, three of these beautiful pods even have their own hot tubs. And if that’s not enough to bask in, the eco-conscious owners have earned themselves a Green Tourism ‘Gold Award’ for commitment to sustainability. So, it’s gold stars all round.
These sublimely constructed cedar pods guarantee a cosy night’s sleep with great insulation, heating and double glazed doors and windows - this is definitely a few steps up from regular camping. Each one is nestled into its own bank next to a dry stone wall to protect you from the elements should they decide to be unkind.
Inside there is a fully-equipped kitchenette complete with a fridge (with ice box), hot running water, a hob, microwave, kettle, toaster and coffee machine. Tasteful crockery is also provided along with an array of utensils - everything from chopping boards to bottle openers. And there are table and chairs that can be folded up and stowed away. Sleeping up to four (five at a push in the Green Top models), each pod has a handmade double bed with a pocket-sprung mattress and a futon/sofa bed - ideal for adventurous families. All towels and bedding are provided. Duvets and pillows in all pods are goose feather and down, with added style from Orla Kiely and Joules bed linen.
In a nod to the dairy farm, the three different types of camping pod are aptly named ‘Gold Top’, ‘Silver Top’ and ‘Green Top’. The most luxurious (gold and silver) have luxury extras such as ensuite bathrooms, contemporary kitchens and gold pods have their own private hot tubs. One of the Green Top Pods - Buckhaw Brow - also has its own private hot tub. The Corn Bents pod benefits from a gorgeous swinging cocoon seat with luxury cushions. Special extras can be added to any of the pods with a luxury pod package - from fizz and fairy lights on arrival to the full popcorn movie package.
Each pod has its own private terrace with an Italian-made outdoor dining tables and chairs, cedar boot storage boxes, and slip-resistant decking. And of course the exquisite panoramic views come as standard. Pods include a fire bowl that also rather handily doubles as a BBQ and comes with free kiln-dried wood - just add marshmallows!
Wander round the site and you’ll be happy to discover ‘The Hub’, a fantastic all-weather communal space that comes complete with a wood-fired pizza oven. This simple space still has full-on style with festoon lighting, cable reel tables, colourful tractor seat stools and outdoor heaters to help keep you cosy - it’s a great place to relax and socialise. Other helpful areas include the Little Laundry and the handy bike store.
The local area is bursting with things to do and is an outdoor enthusiast's dream come true. Based on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park there is plenty of walking and cycling routes - head to Gisburn Forest with its numerous trails, horse riding, bike hire and cafe. For the slower-paced amongst us, there are numerous idyllic villages to lazily discover at your own pace. And the market town of Settle is delightful with its array of independent shops, pubs and cafes.
Pods with private hot tubs are Gold Tops (Holly Bush Hill and Corn Bents) and Green Top Plus (Buckhaw Brow). Our unique outdoor social space - The Hub - offers seating, lighting, heating, a wood-fired pizza oven and tractor-wheel fire pit. We offer guests a 'Stargazer Kit' to borrow as we're next to a dark skies area.
We're perfectly positioned on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Forest of Bowland AONB for outdoor adventures. Bike hire is available nearby.
