About Damson View Glamping
Pods are best suited for couples, looking for a quiet relaxing getaway in the Lakes. There is only one dog-friendly pod called Fellside where one well behaved dog is most welcome.
NearbyIt's the Lake District National Park so walkers, cyclists, climbers, wild swimmers, kayakers and sailors are spoilt for choice. A recommended local walk starts a five-minute drive from Damson View up Gummer's How, which offers a spectacular view over Lake Windermere and across to Coniston Fells. Ask on site for more recommendations. It's only a 15-minute drive to the tourist attractions of Bowness (six miles away) and Lake Windermere. Perhaps hop aboard a steam boat with Windermere Lake Cruises at Bowness and cruise round to Ambleside. Back on dry land, Grasmere is a little further (15 miles) but definitely worth a visit, with more fabulous walks like Helm Crag, Loughrigg and Rydal Water (to name just a few), as well as Sarah Nelson's Gingerbread Shop. If you prefer something a bit less energetic then you could visit Levens Hall (01539 560321) which has fantastic gardens and topiary, Sizergh Castle (01539 560951) or Blackwell Arts & Crafts House (01539 446139) which are all within 10 miles of site. For nostalgia lovers, we would recommend catching the steam train at Lakeside & Haverthwaite, which can be combined with a lake cruise.
Food & Drink
The recommended Punch Bowl Inn (015395 68237), which serves food and great local ales is just a short stroll from the glamping pods. A little further away but also within walking distance are The Black Labrador (015395 68234) in Underbarrow, The Masons Arms (015395 68486) in Cartmel Fell and The Brown Horse Inn (015394 43443) in Winster (all around three miles from site).
