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).

Food & Drink

You can have your pod stocked up with lots of tasty items for breakfast and basics for your stay. Guests can have their shopping done for them and arrive to find their pods filled with top-quality breakfast ingredients and essential food items ready and waiting. There's also a wonderful wood-fired pizza oven available to hire for £10 per night, located at The Hub - the fabulous sheltered social space with seating, lighting and heat.
