Camping Pods

Camping Pod at Hillcrest Park
Bowes & Tees Greta & Bowes Greta Hillcrest Park Camping Pods Pod Interior Campers Kitchen

What is a Camping Pod? It's a solidly built, insulated timber structure, and an empty space with a carpeted floor, heater, light and electric, so bring all your own camping kit - apart from the tent!

There is timber decking providing somewhere to sun-bathe, prepare food or hang your wet gear. The window and lockable French doors are double glazed and the Cumbrian sheep's wool insulation and fitted heater means that the Pod really is a year-round option. There is a small window in the back wall that provides both light and ventilation and the lamp and two electric sockets add that little bit of extra comfort and convenience.

There is a cycle store on site on request and we also hire out airbeds. You will have full use of our centrally heated amenity building with free showers, loos, campers' kitchen and coin operated laundry. Wifi Available.

There are picnic tables/benches provided for each pod as well as hardstanding for barbeques.

All in all, the Pod really is 21st Century Camping. So why not revisit those fun childhood holidays, but this time with grown-up comforts.
