Ideal for our family walks and evening strolls  ★★★★★

We stayed in the White Howe (dog friendly) pod. You would have never had known that it had been used by other doggos before, it was amazingly clean. The location was great, lots of nice little walks at your doorstep. This was ideal for our family walks and evening strolls. Having a toddler and young baby, I was at ease letting my little one run round as the field is secure and safe. The pod itself was fantastic, everything you need in the one space. We didn't expect to receive 4G but we were able to get reception. Overall our experience was brilliant, we will definitely be back. Thank you to George for keeping us updated with relevant information.

We had a fantastic couple of nights stay  ★★★★★

in the Froswick pod. Really comfortable and great amenities for a short break. The views were stunning from the moment we stepped out of the pod, with such a peaceful atmosphere and surroundings. Using the fire pit provided was an enjoyable extra, once the sun had gone down too. We would happily return for another stay!

We absolutely love this place ★★★★★

My wife, kids and I visit every year. We absolutely love this place. The location is stunning and relaxing and the kids have a great time exploring. Short drive to Windermere and lots of walks with a great village near by. The pods are perfect with all the facilities you need. We will be back again next year (and the year after….)

Watching the stars was beautiful  ★★★★★

Lovely time with friends, a magnifique view. Watching the stars was beautiful. The pod is very practical and comfortable, we were there the same time last year and hope to come back next year too. Georgina very nice and helpful, thank you for the lovely holiday.

What a stunning and tidy pod! ★★★★★

What a stunning and tidy pods! Perfect to trail! Well located local amenities. Decent for 2 adults and 2 kids with sofa bed. Dog friendly for one pod. Swift responding from staff.

The pods are perfect. The scenery was spectacular! ★★★★★

My fiancé and I stayed here for a weekend getaway and had such a lovely time! The pods are perfect and have everything that you may need. There was a kitchen area that was well stocked with everything that you could need (cutlery, plates, glasses) and a bed with a thick duvet on. There was a very clean bathroom, with a good shower and plenty of hot water. 

It was a wholesome weekend, where we enjoyed a break from the norms of technology. The scenery was spectacular! Thank you.                                                                            1 March 2023  Sarah B                     Campsites UK

Wonderful pod  ★★★★

Stayed in the White Howe pod and it was wonderful! Pod was clean and comfortable and fire pit and BBQ both great. Will definitely be coming back for another visit! Walk into Staveley was also pretty easy and good location!

Great experience  ★★★★

We stayed in Mickle Moss and loved how warm, cosy and clean the pod was. We had everything we needed and never got cold once! There are some lovely walks situated around the farm and we enjoyed visiting Staveley and Kendal. The local chippy was delicious and we also enjoyed the pub and brewery, there are lots to do for both adults and kids, Windermere isn’t far away and there is also an aquarium. As there isn’t any signal in the pods it was a welcome break from social media and technology (although if you need signal you can catch it nearby don’t worry). We really enjoyed the experience and would highly recomend! We will be returning in the future and will be recommending to friends.

Lovely Cosy Pod ★★★★

Me and my friend stayed in White Howe pod and it was such a lovely cosy pod, there was plenty of space for the both of us, with a double bed and a sofa bed. One thing I loved about the pod was how clean it was, it couldn't of been cleaner. It had everything you needed…  There's plenty around the area of the pods, was around a 15 minute drive to Windermere and Ambleside which was perfect for us, which has plenty of shops if you needed to grab bits and pieces. The local Staveley fish and chip shop was also really nice. If you want somewhere really quiet and remote with views this is the place to go.

Lovely Pods in a fantastic location ★★★★

We had a lovely stay in White Howe pod with our dog Juno. There were soggy days and there were sunny days! The pod was really quite spacious with storage space under the bed for bags. We hired a fire pit which was lovely - plenty of seating outside the pods as well as inside (benches or comfy sofas 😉). Great walks (of varying lengths) all directly from the pod so hardly any need for the car at all - perfect! These are all in the info pack you get in the pod with directions and pictures.

Absolutely amazing place to visit and relax  ★★★★

The views are stunning and facilities inside the pod exceeded our expectations. We hired a fire pit and sat outside to admire a night sky. It was magical experience. Kentmere will be on our list from now on to visit at least once a year. I would highly recommend a walk to Kentmere Reservoir. One of my favorite places in Lake District from now. Thank You so much for a wonderful time.

Loved the tranquil location. ★★★★

I booked Kentmere Pods for my parents for a trip away and they loved their time there. They said the pods were immaculate and had everything you needed. They loved the tranquil location, and enjoyed walking straight from the pods. Will definitely book again.

Fantastic weekend at Kentmere Farm Pods  ★★★★

Beautiful setting, nice and quiet site and the pods were really comfortable and immaculately clean. Absolutely everything we needed. Lovely walks from the site to and easy access to the rest of the lakes. Thanks very much - both to Kentmere Farm Pods and our three children for the lovely gift.

We had a fantastic stay ★★★★ 

The pods are so cosy and the views from them are stunning. The pods are well equipped and you have everything you need to have a really enjoyable holiday. I would recommend hiring a fire pit to enjoy the chilly evenings outdoors whilst toasting marshmallows, lovely. The owner, Georgina is really helpful, accommodating and very friendly. It is easy to walk into town and there are lots of lovely local walks. We will definitely be staying again.

Most beautiful place in England!  ★★★★

Spent 2 nights in what can only be described as the most beautiful place in England! The most unbelievable views from every angel, windermere in your doorstep, the best fish and chips from Staveley Chippy, the cutest pods with fire pit for roasting marshmallows over the fire under the stars, 100% recommended and will be going back for sure, thank you so much for a wonderful stay :)

Perfect Staycation! ★★★★

It's mine and my partners third time staying at Kentmere Farm pods and we're already looking to book again!  The location is stunning, the pod is immaculate and wonderfully designed and we can find no fault with it.  Unlike with camping there is no compromise you have all the luxury of an apartment, the pod is warm and cozy the shower is great and the bed is super comfortable.  You are spoilt for choice in terms of picturesque walks and bike routes straight from the pod and their is a wonderful binder the owners have put together with loads of detailed walks and helpful info regarding the area, food, history etc.  You are also only a short drive from popular locations such as Bowness, Windermere and Ambleside so it's the perfect base to explore this beautiful part of the world regardless of what kind of holiday you're looking for.  Thankyou both so much could not recommend more highly

Stunning location - Breathtaking views  ★★★★★

Have just returned from a fantastic 3 night stay at Kentmere Farms Pods and just had to post a review. Stunning location with breathtaking views of the Kentmere valley and superb walking straight from your front door. So peaceful and tranquil. Our pod was lovely, had everything you could possibly want and was spotlessly clean. A nice warm welcome from George too. Cannot recommend highly enough!

A beautiful location  ★★★★★

The pods are immaculate and the covid precautions in place made us feel safe as well as George making us feel more than welcome. A beautiful location in a secluded spot to get away from the world and relax. I couldn't recommend Kentmere farm pods highly enough. With a 6 month old baby in tow there was enough room for the travel cot, 2 adults and the dog in the pod making the perfect 1st family holiday.

A beautiful hide away   ★★★★★

The pods at Kentmere were fantastic, they were fully equipped with everything you need for a get away. They were clean and tidy, bed was comfy and we instantly felt relaxed here. The pods are in a beautiful location that make you feel like you’re lost in the amazing landscapes of the Lake District when in fact you’re only 5 minutes away from some liveliness. All the information we were given throughout the booking process and our stay was detailed and incredibly helpful. We loved our stay and would highly recommend it to others!

Excellent experience  ★★★★★

The farm pods were delightful in every single way, they were tucked away in the country but had easy access to the local amenities, including a recommended (and very delicious after a long day walking!) fish and chip shop! Everywhere was very clean and tidy, and the pods had a comfy bed, a hot shower and all kitchenware was supplied. Everything to do with the pod was of very high standard. We had great communication with George, who was helpful in arranging our trip and making sure we were comfortable and everything was to our liking. The area is very dog friendly with superb walking routes directly from the pods and can't wait to go again!

Amazing Time  ★★★★★

Stayed for 2 nights in one of the pods had a fabulous time. Everything you need is in the pod and the under floor heating was lovely after a days walking. The views were brilliant of a morning and the stars of a night were like a dream never seen so many stars together. Will definitely return in the future

Perfect break in a hidden gem!  ★★★★★

The location of Kentmere Farm pods is truly beautiful and I am ashamed to say we usually bypass it on our way to Langdale/Wasdale...not any more! There are so many lovely low and highland walks from the farm, our car never moved from the car park! It can be hard to get dog friendly accommodation so this was a real find for us! The pods are gorgeous - cosy underfloor heating, plenty of sitting space and superb kitchen and bathroom facilities and a lovely cosy bed! The pod was immaculately clean and had great facilities inside so not much packing to do either! The outside facilities also exceeded our expectations, there is a lovely small table and chairs on the decking and also a patio area with a picnic table if you need more room. This is such a lovely peaceful location, we stayed 3 nights but wish it was longer, we will definitely stay again!

We would highly recommend Kentmere Farm Pods to anyone looking for a break away from the busyness of life and all of its stresses.  The pods are very modern and purpose built, with everything you need to have a cosy time away. When we arrived everything was clean and tidy. The key safe means you can easily access your pods with a code and leave the key in the key safe when you go out exploring making check in and check out simple. The bed was SO comfortable and we were able to cook up some nice food using the kitchenette.                                                                                                                                                      March19 by Jessie - Cool Camping website

I recently stayed at the Kentmere Farm Pods (with our labradoodle Archie) and we absolutely loved it. The pods themselves are really well fitted out with very nice underfloor heating, plenty of space, very comfortable furniture (which was appreciated after days of long walks in the lakes!) The location is great and the local village of Staveley has a very nice chippy that came in handy on our first night. The owner was very welcoming and all of the contact before we arrived was great as well as providing a very detailed local guide in the pod.'                                                                                                                                      March 19 Matt Cameron - Cool Camping website

'A huge thanks for my stay. I've not been to the Lakes for a long time and loved it. My pod was perfect too - beyond everything I hoped. Thanks for making me feel so relaxed and welcome'.

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Kentmere Farm Pods and it was everything we’d hoped for and more. The location is as beautiful and serene as the site photos suggest and the welcome we received warm, friendly and helpful. The village of Staveley, a picturesque 30 minute walk (with young children in tow!), has a lovely choice of places to eat and drink and the walks from the Pod doorstep were also brilliant. The pod itself was pristine, well thought out and so cosy. The bed was so comfortable it was a disappointment to wake up in my own this morning! We look forward to returning.
