Day 23 of The Quirky Tour and Jess and Dom enjoyed a visit to Catgill Timber Pod in North Yorkshire.

Catgill pod with hot tub

First Impression:

A lovely decked area with a view of the Yorkshire Dales, outdoor furniture and BBQ would be great to hangout on a good day along with the hot tub which is great whatever the weather.

It is good to take a brisk walk down to Bolton Abbey and the famous stepping stones to keep warm in cooler weather, or enjoy the cosy pod!

Lovely to meet Lisa and the friendly team at Catgill with whom we have worked since 2019 and to see the sites development, enjoying returning guests time and time again.

The Accommodation:

Through double doors you arrive in a living / dining area with kitchenette and double bed with plump cushions with a colourful theme. To the back there is a fun bunk area for children and a shower room.

The pod offers a great base for exploring this beautiful area and would suit a couple or family break.

We especially liked sitting in the hot tub and taking in the stunning countryside views - a great way to relax. You are given your first bag of wood and probably need a bag a day if you liked the hot tub as much as we did! These are charged at £8 each.

Food and Drink:

The pod is self catering with a well equipped kitchenette. Outside you have your own fire pit with cooking grill and internal pizza oven - great fun for all ages. Be sure to bring some food with you so you have supplies, especially for your first morning. 

That being said there is a coffee shop on site that sells barista made coffee, freshly baked pastries and delicious hot chocolate as well as a general shop that sells any essentials you may have forgotten.

If you fancy eating out then The Devonshire Arms is about a 15 minute stroll away through the fields - a great way to work up a hunger, but be sure to book ahead at this popular restaurant or cocktail bar. We found they were full on a Monday night in January! Addington is not far away with more options if necessary.

Jess' top tip:

There is so much to do here in this area. The countryside is stunning at every turn. We enjoyed a walk by the famous ruins of Bolton Abbey where you can normally cross the river via the stepping stones. These were currently being renovated so there is a handy bridge to cross in the meantime. 

We enjoyed a meal out at The Fleece in Addingham a short drive away and were told that The Swan and Indian restaurant both offer great food too.
