Perfect hidden gem
We stayed with our 3 children in the Cross Fell pod at the start of summer. The whole experience was ideal from start to finish. Dave and Liz made us very welcome from the start of our visit and we were astonished by the high standard and comfort of our pod. It has everything you need for a few days – microwave, fridge (with small freezer section for emergency ice cream!), toaster, induction hob and all crockery/utensils required. For bigger cooking requirements the on site camp kitchen is superb – better than my home kitchen – and the wood burning stove is a super cosy addition to that space. It is fabulously stocked with a wide variety of games for children and adults of all ages. The small, but perfectly formed, shower room and toilet in the pod was great – shower pressure was strong enough to wash hair (a helpful baseline).
All of us had a cosy night’s sleep and were astonished at how quiet it was – even on a windy Cumbrian evening the pod was very quiet, and in the morning we weren’t disturbed by our fleecy bleating neighbours at all – although opening the curtains and looking out across the field at them made for a wonderful start for the day.
I cannot recommend a stay at Eden Valley Glamping highly enough; if you want a break from the hurries of the every day, with the comfort of a hotel and the personal nature of camping you can’t beat it!
