  • "The pod was absolutely perfect for what we needed."

    A home from home with all mod cons and extremely comfortable. I’ve not slept so well in years! Can’t wait to come back!

  • "Great place to stay."

    Very well thought out, and a great use of the space. The pod was very clean. Bathroom and shower are a decent size, and shower is nice and hot. The fridge, hobs and tv all work great. The Pod is in a lovely peaceful location. Bed is a little creeky. The mattress is very soft which isn’t to my liking, but suppose that’s personal preference. Would definitely stay again.

  • "Went to the pod for my first trip away with my partner."

    Couldn't have wished for a better place to getaway for a few days. The pod was located in an amazing area surrounded by fields and hills. The pod itself was extremely cosy and had everything we needed for our stay. If anyone is looking to escape to the country we couldn't recommend anywhere more than this.

  • "The pod had everything we needed and everything was displayed in such a lovely and organised way."

    It was really easy to find everything. It has been furnished in a really lovely way which made it feel very cosy and homely. We only had one night when we had no hot water, but it was resolved really quickly. We were amazed by how fast the gas bottle was changed (thank you!) The views were wonderful too! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily stay again/recommend to others.

  • "The POD was really well equipped and luxurious."

    Far better than we expected. Not too far from Kendal and Windemere but far enough out to get away from the hussle an bussle. The views are outstanding. We didn't want to leave, it was a little touch of heaven. The complimentary Wine, Milk, bread and biscuits was a lovely touch to be welcomed with on arrival

About the location


Windermere 8 miles.

A historic market town with a fine reputation for shopping, Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent and is known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. Visit The Abbot Hall Art Gallery, its regular collection holding portraits by Kendal born George Romney and works by Turner and Ruskin, with other exhibitions through its links with the Tate. Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay. Kendal itself is ideally placed for exploring South Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and beyond. With other attractions such as Kendal Museum and the Museum of Lakeland Life, the fascinating Quaker Tapestry, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Kendal provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
