Leave the tent at home and camp in style in a camping pod newly installed at Stanage-North Lees campsite, near Hathersage, in the heart of the Peak District National Park.
Four pods are available all located in an idyllic woodland setting overlooking a stream.
Made locally from wood, the camping pods offer a hassle-free alternative to putting up a tent and provide an attractive, dry and spacious camping space. They are available to book now.
The pods can be hired by families or small groups. There are two standard pods and two family-sized pods. The standard pods are ideal for two adults and one child or two small children/infants. One of the standard pods is dog-friendly. The family-sized pods are designed for two adults and two to three children or could be used by four or five adults.
Rebekah Newman property manager for the Stanage-North Lees Estate said: “We want people to think of the pods as a luxury tent! They will still need to bring everything they would need if they were camping, except for the tent, and that makes them ideal for backpackers, cyclists, climbers, and people travelling without a car.
“The beauty of the camping pods is that they have lighting and heating so people will be able to stay at Stanage-North Lees all year round and enjoy exploring the area in all seasons.”
Each pod has a covered veranda for cooking and sitting, a double-glazed window and lockable French doors. The pods are well insulated to cut down the noise made by heavy rain, and to keep them warm in winter and cool in summer.
Toilets, showers, an under-cover washing up area and a freezer for freezer-packs are provided on site in a nearby building.
It costs from as little as £25 to hire a standard pod for the night, and from £35 for a family pod, which includes electric lighting and heating. People are able to charge their phones and other mobile devices.
People can book a pod by phone on 01433 650838 or make an enquiry by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prices can be found at www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/camping-northlees.
