Our cosy pods offer a few simple indoor comforts whilst staying in the great outdoors.

Perfect for a weekend away, camping pods offer the chance to relax without having to pitch a tent yourself. So whether you’re a couple looking to explore, or a family hoping to get some adventures together, the pods provide an opportunity for an easy get-away.

The pods at Eskdale are a bit more basic compared to those at our other Lake District sites. Clustered together, a stone’s throw from all the essential facilities, there are 10 cosy pods in two little circles in a wooded area of the campsite – so be prepared for a sociable stay rather than complete privacy. The pods do not contain any equipment at all, so you’d need to bring all your camping kit apart from the tent although they do have heating and lighting.

There’s one pod size available which is suitable for a maximum of two adults and one child.

The pods blend in with the Lakeland backdrop as they’re made from locally sourced timber, and insulated with sheep’s wool, which also means you can use them for a break during the winter months.

Dogs welcome with well behaved owners

Dogs are welcome in all the pods at Eskdale, so long as they are kept fully under control at all times and exercised away from the camping areas.

What you need to bring

Think of a pod as a replacement for your tent. You'll need to bring everything you would bring if you were camping in your tent (sleeping bag, sleep mat, pots and pans, stove, camping chairs, torch etc). The pods are unfurnished with a soft floor and there is indoor lighting, a heater and double electric socket with two USB sockets. 

Pod electrics - please note

The maximum capacity per pod is 10 amps so please bring only small travel or low wattage electrical items - particularly kettles.

What time can you arrive and when do you need to leave?

The camping pods are available from 1pm on day of arrival until 10am on day of departure.
