Sometimes a break away from the city is the perfect way to unwind, and you don’t need to go abroad to do that.

Staycations are very popular at the moment, with many of us choosing to stick to the UK instead of jetting off on a plane. There are plenty of picturesque places not too far away from the city to really relax, including ‘T he Pods by the Stream’ at Flakebridge Farm, Tebay, Cumbria.

Camping isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, which is why glamping is a great option for those who like a bit of luxury. With the weather very slowly but surely getting warmer, glamping offers the perfect solution for a break. The Pods are at Flakebridge Farm in Tebay, Cumbria, just a one hour and 40 minute drive away from Liverpool.

The glamping site is on the border between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, offering great countryside views for visitors. It’s a family-run site on a traditional working farm, just five minutes drive from the motorway but deep in the countryside.

Each new arrival is provided with all the essentials including tea, coffee, sugar and fresh milk together with a gift hamper. For those who fancy a fry up for breakfast, English breakfast kits with locally produced ingredients can also be provided and cooked in the kitchenette.

The pods sleep four, with a double bed and a sofa bed suitable for one adult or two kids. Each pod has a hot tub, plus robes and slippers for extra indulgence. Prices start at £140 per night for two adults, with a minimum two-night stay.

Visitors have left plenty of positive reviews on the Pitchup website, one read: “Welcoming family, very friendly and couldn’t do enough for us making sure we had the best time possible on our stay here. High quality luxurious pod with everything you would ever need in the most beautiful of locations with some stunning walks accessible straight from the farm yard.”
