Lake District Camping PodsCamping pods are an eco-friendly alternative to camping. They are also more secure than camping as they have lockable french windows.
The roof is designed to deal with sudden down-pours and the pod walls are insulated with sheep wool making camping pods practical whatever the Cumbrian weather!
The pods have plenty of headroom and vary slightly in size although most can accommodate two adults and small children. You basically need to bring everything you need for camping, minus the tent.
