Check into this luxury cedar-clad glamping pod for the ultimate countryside getaway. Surrounded by the hills, farm animals, fresh air and clear night skies at Boustagill Farm, on the border between North Yorkshire and Lancashire. 

There is a stunning view from the pod 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. Your stay includes a trug of kiln-dried logs and kindling for your first fire.

Silver Top pod "The Folds" is nestled against its own dry-stone wall and perfectly proportioned to sleep couples or families. It sleeps up to four guests and has its own ensuite shower room and stunning views of the countryside. Inside, guests sleep on luxury pocket-sprung mattresses or comfortable sofa beds with luxury feather and down duvets and pillows including luxurious bedding and towels. Free WiFi is available and the pod has a Smart TV and Netflix for those times you want to hunker down indoors. Outside, there's a wooden deck and covered, spacious patio area with deluxe Weber barbecue, double cocoon swing seat, fire pit, string chairs and outdoor dining table and chairs.

The Hub, next to the car park, is a unique sheltered social space for guests to relax, socialise and enjoy the views. That's where you'll find the wood-fired pizza oven, seating, lounge area and tables, festoon lighting and heaters. Gather round a tractor-wheel fire pit and toast marshmallows while taking in the stunning views. There's also a Little Laundry with washer, dryer and ironing facilities and a basket of outdoor games.

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.
