One person said: “This was our first time “Glamping” and Cragg Farm pods will be a tough one to top! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Catherine, the owner and host, was so welcoming and great at communicating via email in the lead-up to our stay. She was very helpful with any questions once we arrived and only a phone call away if we needed anything. The Pod is right next to a field with sheep and little lambs only 2-3 days old, very cute!”

One person said: “I cannot recommend this campsite enough. The spot had a very secluded vibe while still being within driving distance to plenty of hiking spots and towns. Ruth was a fantastic host and made us feel so welcome. This trip was my friend’s first time camping in a number of years and she left inspired to do some more camping on her own! Thanks Ruth!”

Rating: 4.95/5

One review said: “First thing I would say, we arrived a day early without any issue, even though it was 21:30, the hosts led us to our pitch in the rain and got us settled. The site is small, washing up area is amazing, free phone charging points and hot water in abundance.

“Picnic bench in every pitch, facilities for open fire provided, they even sell wood. The deal maker for me and the kids had to be the showers, they were amazing, spotlessly clean and hot water was plentiful. They were stunning. ”

One person said: “A really lovely and welcoming place. Not at all busy, just the 3 pods in our field, looking out over the Eden Valley landscape to distant hills. Sheep and cows in nearby fields.

You will hear the adjacent road and nearby Settle to Carlisle railway line and normal sounds of nearby working farms. Pods well presented and well appointed, with access to a very nice communal kitchen and sitting space, should you need it.”
