Love the idea of Camping? Less sure about the cold, damp and draughty bits?

Why not try out one of our luxurious Hideaway glamping pods? They’re not your typical Lake District glamping! Experience outdoor living whilst enjoying all the indoor comforts required for a comfortable stay.

Outside the Hideaway Family Glamping Pod


These unique glamping pods are self-contained “Swift S-Pods” which are located in one of the park’s quietest and most wildlife-friendly spots. Deer and woodpeckers are often nearby and may even give you a breath-taking moment as they pass while you peer through the full-length windows or enjoy breakfast on your private decking.

CampStead Logo Excellent ratingOur two-berth hideaways are perfect for a romantic break. Why not treat a loved one or celebrate an anniversary? Or just enjoy a long weekend walking and wildlife spotting in possibly the most beautiful part of the Lakes. Staying with us Skelwith Fold is always a special experience and we go out of our way to give you a memorable visit – starting with complimentary Prosecco and locally made Kendal Mint Cake ready for you on arrival. These charming Hideaways provide a unique ambience that cannot be experienced anywhere else in the Lake District.

So if you love the idea of being closer to nature but hate sleeping under canvas, these Hideaways in Ambleside are just for you. Use the availability checker (below) or contact us to reserve anything from 2 nights to a week long stay.

Alternatively, for something a little different, why not see our Safari Tents? Or you may find our Family Hideaways a better fit for your holiday needs.

Dog friendly glamping pods

We are pleased to announce that from Spring 2020 we have made our Wagtail Hideaway dog friendly – and you can now bring along your faithful four-legged friend to join you and your partner for your unforgettable Lakeland Adventure at Skelwith Fold!

The video above gives you a look inside our intimate two-berth Hideaway glamping pods – but please be aware that we have moved them slightly since the video was taken. Now the pods sit in a secluded part of the park close to their previous location.

The ‘hideaway pod’ was perfect for the two of us and was situated in a lovely location. It was absolutely immaculate on our arrival.
