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.
