    Warm comfortable and very well equipped, steep access not intended for use, luggage had to be hand carried from car to pod. 12 night stay involved extra clothes etc. to be moved.

    We absolutly loved the lodge it was perfect! It was lovely and heated when we first arrived and very clean! It also had tea bags, jams and other useful things which was great! One thing we would say is potentially having slightly more cooking utensils and maybe some herbs and spices. This was minor however compared to our whole experience and we had a great time!

    Excellent pod. Great for area for walkers. Pub 10 mins walk where meals are very good. Bit of traffic noise from the nearby A66.

    The pods are very well designed and equipped. Comfortable and warm. Well placed for exploring the Northern Fells, but a little close to the A66 and traffic noise. However, the pods are pretty well soundproofed against the noise. My first experience of glamping and although I came alone on this occasion, I’ll be back with my partner next time. A great experience.

    Such a lovely pod! Love that you independently get into your own pod with a code. The location is great, right next to Keswick and Ullswater so it was really well situated, great view out only thing was the main road was in the middle of the view but you’re quite up the hill away from it so you can’t really hear any noise from it! The pods were beautiful and cosy, fully clean, everything worked, good amenities. Overall lovely stay. Briefly spoke to someone working on the farm next to where we were parked as we were leaving, might have been the owner, really nice, friendly man.

    Suffers a bit from the proximity of the main road (A66) in terms of traffic noise and view.... but it's very convenient for Keswick, and the "glamping pods" are very clean, stylish and well-equipped.

    Brilliant time first time in a pod the only downside was the noise from the road. Which was a shame However would go back because so easy to get around. And stunning views... My grandsons loved it!

    Nowhere on the literature does it state that the location of these pods are unsuitable for people with walking difficulties.

    The Pod was a perfect base for the two of us to explore the area. It was spotlessly clean warm , secure and well kitted out. We will be using the facility again as we really enjoyed our time there.

    This was our first experience of glamping and we were amazed at how the pod lacked nothing as far as comfort was concerned. It was surrounded by beautiful scenery and just a few miles from Keswick. We would definitely recommend and something we would do again.

    Really great little huts, warm and comfortable with applicances that would allow you to self cater should you choose. Will be even nicer when the trees grow between the lodges and the main road to dampen the sound/view if you wished to use the outside picnic tables. That being said, inside the sound insulation is good so you don’t notice the traffic. A few extra coat hooks and a black out blind on the toilet door would be useful additions (the light is movement sensitive and on a delayed timer so not great for trips to the loo after bedtime) but otherwise has everything you need.

    Lovely pod (nice and cosy) but too near to a main road. We were disappointed that the view overlooked the main road to Penrith which was constantly busy. It wasn't mentioned in the description so we were unhappy about being misled.
