These cosy, beautiful cedar-clad glamping pods are surrounded by the hills, farm animals, fresh air and clear night skies of Boustagill Farm, on the border between North Yorkshire and Lancashire.

There is a stunning view from the pods to the hills around it and to make the most out of your relaxing break there are fire pits, a wooden deck area outside, a shared pizza oven available 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. There are three different types of pod, so there is bound to be something for everyone.

The premium Gold Top pod 'Holly Bush Hill' has its own private wood-fired hot tub. Located at the edge of the site, it sleeps up to four people with an ensuite shower room, complete with towels. There's a fully equipped kitchenette, a foldaway wooden table and a private outdoor space with picnic table.

The Silver Top pods 'The Folds' and 'Corn Bents' also sleep four people, have their own private shower room, stunning views and a barbecue area. Corn Bents will also get its own wood-fired hot tub from February 2018.

The Green Top pods are 'Two Acre Bit' and 'Buckhaw Brow' and they offer accommodation for two adults on a handmade wooden bed and two children on a small double sofa bed with comfortable memory-foam mattress. The private shower rooms with key code access only are only a few steps from the pod.

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.

Green Top pods cost £60 p/n midweek (min 1 night) and £70 weekends and holidays (min 2 nights), Silver Top pods are £75 p/n midweek and £85 weekends and holidays, and the Gold Top pod is £120 p/n midweek and £130 weekends and holidays.

During school holidays arrival days are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays - weekends and bank holidays are a minimum of three nights Fri-Mon.

There are extras to choose from to make your stay perfect, from luxury packages and hot tub pre-lighting service to bedding and towel hire for the Silver and Green Top pods. Guests who choose the Breakfast and Basics extra will arrive to find their pod stocked up with top quality ingredients for breakfast and essentials such as milk, bread and butter.

Peaks and Pods is a Green Tourism site and value being eco-friendly by recycling, reusing and reducing, encouraging guests to buy local products and offering information about them. Electricity for the pods is generated on the farm by a wind turbine and solar panels. Each pod has a supply of eco-friendly cleaning products for guests to use throughout their stay.

Due to cows and sheep being close to the pod site, unfortunately, dogs aren't accepted.
