Camping Pods

Staying in a camping pod is very much a camping experience – only easier!  Our pods are an empty, carpeted space, with a heater, light and electric, so remember to bring all your camping kit.  We do, however, hire out airbeds and there is a communal kitchen facility in the amenity building, with kettles, toasters, microwaves, hotplates and a fridge/freezer. Wifi is available.

Adults Only Area

Our main ‘poddery’ area is designated as adults only ensuring that whether it is school holidays or not, you needn’t worry about little  ones (sorry little ones, but sometimes grown-ups need some ‘me time’).    Although the ‘poddery’ is adults only, this does not mean there will be no other children on the site, as we also offer other accommodation where they are welcome.  However, the ‘poddery’ is in a separate area which no other visitors should access.  This area of the site offers wonderful views of beautiful Teesdale, so you can sit on your deck with a relaxing glass of something tasty and take in the sunset – in peace and quiet!

All our pods are dog friendly.

We have two sizes of Pod, large and small. The 5 large ones are in the adults only section, along with 3 small ones,  but there are two small ones in separate area in which sleep 2 adults and one child. Please contact us directly if you would like to book one of these.  Otherwise you can book online on our booking widget.

 The Large Pod is 8ft 8in by 11ft 6in and sleeps up to 2 adults comfortably. All our large pods are in the adults only section. This Pod has 2 spotlights, as well as a heater and a spare socket.

The Small Pod is 7ft 7in by 8ft 10in and sleeps two adults. This Pod has a lamp, a heater and a socket.



Bookings of 4 or more adults on one group are not allowed.  We are a small, quiet site and ideal if you are looking for a tranquil, rural getaway.  If you are looking for a party venue, you will be disappointed!
We have a strict policy of personal music only, quiet after dark, and no noise between 10.30pm and 8am.  If you want to stay up late, listening to loud music, this is not the site for you.
Visitors are by prior arrangement only, as we have limited parking. A fee will be charged.
Check in is between 2pm and 7pm and check out at 11am (unless by prior arrangement).
The electric sockets in the pods will power mobile phone chargers, laptops and travel devices. But not domestic appliances.
Dogs are welcome in the pods, but no smoking, cooking or open fires are allowed inside.
We don’t accept groups. 
Airbeds can be hired on request for £3 each per night. 
As a small site, we do not have much extra parking, so please try and keep it to one vehicle per pod. Each pod has its own designated parking space close by.
Cancellation policy: 2 weeks prior to arrival date, full refund.  After that, no refunds are available.  Please be clear that we do not offer refunds for late arrivals or early departures, whatever the weather!
Fire/BBQs: We do not allow firepits, but you are welcome to bring your own BBQ as long as you are considerate of your neighbours, sensible and don’t put them on the decking or grass – only the hardstanding provided.
Please note the ‘poddery’ is adults only from 2019 onwards, but there may be a few bookings made prior with children.
