These luxury cedar-clad glamping pods are surrounded by the hills, farm animals, fresh air and clear night skies at Boustagill Farm, on the border between North Yorkshire and Lancashire. Two of the pods have their own private hot tubs.

There is a stunning view from the pods to the hills around and to make the most out of your relaxing break there are fire pits, wooden deck areas, a wood-fired pizza oven for hire, indoor cooking facilities and an outdoor barbecue.

Each pod is nestled against its own dry-stone wall and perfectly proportioned to sleep couples or families. They are all either en-suite or have a private bathroom. Guests sleep on luxury pocket-sprung mattresses or comfortable sofa beds with luxury feather and down duvets and pillows. There are three different types of pod, so there is bound to be something for everyone. Free WiFi is available in all pods.

The two premium Gold Top pods Holly Bush Hill and Corn Bents have their own private hot tubs with jets and LED lights. Located at each end of the site, the pods sleep up to four people. There's an ensuite shower room, complete with towels, a fully equipped kitchenette, foldaway wooden table and chairs and an outdoor space with dining table and chairs. The Gold Top pods also come complete with full bedding.

The Silver Top pod The Folds also sleeps four and has its own ensuite shower room, stunning views and a barbecue area. Inside, it's the same spec as the Gold Top pods and includes bedding and towels. Outside it has a wooden deck and generous patio area with fire pit, outdoor dining table and chairs.

The Green Top pods are Buckhaw Brow and Two Acre Bit and they offer accommodation for two adults on a handmade wooden bed and up to two children on a small double sofa bed with memory foam mattress. Buckhaw Brow features stunning Orla Kiely bedding, while Two Acre Bit boasts beautiful Joules bees bedding. Their private shower rooms, with key code access, only are only a few steps from the pods, offering limitess hot water showers. Bliss!

The Hub, next to the car park, has a fantastic sheltered social space for guests to relax, socialise and enjoy the views. That's where you'll find the wood-fired pizza oven, seating and tables, festoon lighting and heating. There's a Little Laundry with washer, dryer and ironing facilities, also stocked with children's games and toys.

Challenging trails and footpaths and the Yorkshire Dales, the Forest of Bowland and Gisburn Forest surround the farm, perfect for explorers by foot or by bike. There is a secure bike storage building, bike repair stands, a bike wash and other helpful facilities for cyclists. The charming town of Settle is just five miles away and has a great range of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, and an excellent supermarket. The picture-postcard villages of Clapham, Ingleton and Malham are within easy reach, for those wanting to venture away from the farm.

There's a minimum stay of two nights in all the pods. Green Top pods cost £80 p/n midweek and £90 weekends and holidays, the ensuite Silver Top pod is £90 p/n midweek and £100 weekends and holidays, and the Gold Top pods are £140 p/n midweek and £150 weekends and holidays.
