A wonderful getaway retreat, perfect for a couple or family with children. Tucked into the owners working farm within the charming village of Malham providing guests with an unforgettable holiday home.

This super-stylish glamping pod is set on a working farm in the pretty village of Malham, surrounded by glorious North Yorkshire countryside. And the popular Pennine Way runs right alongside your romantic retreat, so you’ll be inspired to leap up and venture out daily on early morning hikes to explore the charms of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Sleeping two guests, it’s an idyllic holiday hideaway, ideal for couples who love to be surrounded by the sounds of nature and wildlife, and there’s room for two extra guests on the sofa bed. There’s also an additional glamping pod on-site so both pods could be booked together for a small family reunion in this peaceful setting. This spectacular area is home to peregrine falcons – see if you can spot them soaring above. And you’re within half a mile of the fascinating rock formations and limestone pavements at Malham Cove, and the banks of the River Aire. After a long day exploring the many charms of North Yorkshire, you might feel like letting someone else do the cooking, so it’s good to know that you have a choice of three foodie pubs within a half-mile stroll of your holiday home. There’s also the convenience of off-road parking for guests on-site.

Venture up the path towards your characterful timber holiday home with an ark-shaped design, and step on to the decked terrace. Enter the property where you’ll soon warm up with the cosy interiors featuring underfloor heating. There’s also USB charging and power sockets, so you’ll enjoy all the home comforts in this bijou bolthole, in addition to stylish and well-designed, inspiring interiors. Your luxury pod is beautifully crafted and furnished with every creature comfort, making this an incredibly restful retreat. Refresh in the perfectly designed shower room, so you can revive before striding out on a new day of adventures. Step through to the compact fitted kitchen which features an electric hob, fridge, and microwave, making it easy to rustle up delicious home-cooked meals for your loved one in this rural setting. Snuggle up after dinner on the cosy sofa, or catch up on that new novel you’ve been planning to read. When night falls, amble over to your stylish double bed and sink into the crisp linens and cosy covers after a dreamy day of adventures in Yorkshire; your cosy pod ensures a great night’s sleep ahead.

Outside, you’ll find a private seated terrace where you can sit and enjoy the stunning countryside views. Or, take a step down to a grass and gravel area where you can relax and catch some sunny rays on a rest day, just listening to birdsong or streaming your favourite tunes. Make the most of those views with brunches alfresco, or with evening drinks under the starry night’s sky.

Great accommodation for a short break. Short walk to Malham village, and within about a 30 minute walk to Malham Cove, Janet's Foss and Gordale Scar - which is very picturesque countryside.

The POD was everything we wanted it to be, in a beautiful location, very relaxing with just the sounds of the countryside. All mod cons, extremely clean and well kitted out. We even made use of the BBQ on one of the nights. Perfect for a couple, would be a bit crowded if there were four people. Two pubs a few minutes walk away and plenty of walkingRead more trails to explore. Would go back in a blink. The owners, Carol and David were lovely and very helpful. We were sad to go. Hide

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
