The cosiest Pod for Two imaginable, in the midst of some of the UK's finest countryside.
Broadrayne Farm Grasmere Cumbria LA22 9RU 01539 460 978
We've always liked the cosy accommodation at the Grasmere Independent Hostel in the heart of the Lake District, but Grasmere Glamping takes things to a new level, with their handmade bespoke Pod designed for couples wanting a romantic retreat or just a place bang in the centre of the Great Outdoors.
Situated on a former farm, it enjoys a lovely position, surrounded by some of the Lakes' best scenery, and instant access to many inspiring mountain and valley routes. Grasmere village is a short stroll away and there is a decent pub – the Traveller's Rest – just two minutes' walk down the road.
As for the Pod, it's equipped with everything you might need for a luxurious stay while sacrificing none of the closeness to nature that makes glamping so special. Indeed 'Pod' perhaps isn't quite the right word – there's a lounge area with a large sofa, a wood-burning stove, a dining table with two chairs, and a wall-mounted flatscreen TV. There's also a fitted kitchen with oven, hob, small fridge/freezer, kettle, toaster and all the pans, crockery and glasses you need – plus wifi, a bluetooth music system and electrical sockets with integrated USB chargers for your devices. The double bed has crisp white linen and the bathroom a shower, toilet, sink, heated towel rail and underfloor heating – and fluffy white towels. As if that wasn't enough, it's eco-friendly too – fully insulated and with a woodchip boiler providing hot water for and LED lighting throughout. If there is a cosier country bolthole for loved-up Lakeland walking folk, then we have yet to find it.
