‘Whinlatter’, Family Plus Pod at Lanefoot Farm Campsite

Glamping Pods in Thornthwaite

Affordable camping accommodation already set up on site. Leave the tent at home and avoid the adverse effects of driving rain, or the chore of drying out a wet tent when you get home!  The Pods are already set up on site – just bring all your camping gear, but leave the tent behind!
