Put your feet up with a cup of tea and a good book, keeping your eye peeled for local wildlife such as deer, hares and curlews. If you're ready to explore, you'll find something for everyone in our wonderful local area.

The Hub, just off the car park, is a unique social space for all our guests to enjoy at any time of day. Relax on the wooden swing seat, gather round the tractor-wheel fire pit or snuggle under a blanket to stargaze in our dark sky. With seating, lighting and heating, it's the perfect place to hang out, whatever the weather.

If you like to mooch, spend the day wandering our local market towns – Settle, Kirkby Lonsdale, Clitheroe or Skipton. If you love to explore the great outdoors, visit the stunning nearby village of Malham with its dramatic cove and tarn, the popular Ingleton Waterfalls Walk, or the river at Bolton Abbey.

We're spoilt for choice with cafes, pubs, restaurants and takeaways in our local area, all within a short drive from Peaks and Pods.

Peaks and Pods is the perfect place for cyclists, offering a bike store, bike repair stands, bike washing and laundry facilities. We'll even help you to plan the perfect day on two wheels with our selection of local routes.

Features & Facilities

IMPORTANT - We are not taking group bookings at the moment. Only two pods may be booked together.

All five pods come with luxury bedding - feather and down duvets and pillows on top of a sumptuous pocket-sprung mattress.

Our Gold Top and Green Top Plus pods have private hot tubs with jets and LED lights. All pods have a deck and flagged patio with a fire bowl and barbecue rack. Your first trug of logs is included for a full outdoor experience!

The cedar-clad pods are insulated, heated, have double-glazed security doors and lighting inside and out. Power sockets, Smart TVs and USB points are provided, as well as free WiFi to each pod. There's a modern kitchenette with a fridge, sink with hot running water, two-ring hob, microwave, kettle, toaster, cutlery, crockery, glasses, pans and utensils.
Each pod has a foldaway wooden table with four chairs and they all have retractable fly screen doors to keep bugs out in summer.

The Green Top and Green Top Plus pods are just a few steps from their own private shower rooms, with key code access and unlimited hot water for the showers, while the Gold and Silver Top pods are ensuite. All have a towel bundle for extra convenience.

Our Green Top and Green Top Plus pods feature designer bedding - gorgeous Joules bedding in Two Acre Bit and stunning Orla Kiely bedding in Buckhaw Brow. Sofa beds come complete with extra bedding  stowed away when booked for more than two guests.

The Hub - a shared social space - puts Peaks and Pods into a league of its own and is a unique guest area away from the pods with tables, chairs, wood-fired pizza oven, tractor wheel fire pit, wooden swing seat, benches, heating and lighting. The adjoining Little Laundry has superb washing facilities and offers a selection of family games and outdoor games to borrow, as well as local area information area.

Hens roam around the site and you'll often see sheep and cows on our neighbouring fields, peeping over the fence to see what you're up to!
Boot storage boxes and log storage is provided at each pod and there is a special area to wash bikes, carry out maintenance and store them securely.

Peaks and Pods offers unrivalled facilities and is glamping at its very best!


It's just five miles to Gisburn Forest, a Mecca for mountain bikers, perfect for an adrenaline-packed ride or a family-friendly pedal. Most trails start from Gisburn Forest Hub (01200 446747) with car park, toilets, picnic area and café. While you're there, a walk round the beautiful reservoir is a must. Excellent local market towns include Settle, Clitheroe, Skipton and Kirkby Lonsdale – all only a short journey away. Hop aboard a waggon on the Settle-Carlisle Railway (01729 825888) – England's most scenic train line is the claim – or take on the famous walking routes around Malham Cove and Tarn, where you can hop across the unique limestone rocks like a bug on giant puzzle pieces. The most hardy walkers can take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks (in a day) – Whernside, Ingleborough and Penyghent – enjoying Ribblehead Viaduct en route (a worthy landmark to walk to in itself).
