Camping Pods

Camping Pods in England and Wales

Stay in a pod and you keep all the great things about camping – the spirit of adventure, the feeling of being closer to nature, the romance of it all - but you’re better protected from the elements. They’re unfurnished so bring all your usual camping gear but the tent. Stay once and you won’t want to stay any other way.

There are two sizes of  camping pod:

Standard size pod: max. 2 adults and 1 child (not suitable for 3 adults).
Family pods: max. 2 adults and 3 children or 4 adults.

Number of pods at each location:

YHA Hawkshead – 8 pods

YHA Grinton Lodge – 5 pods

YHA South Downs – 4 pods

YHA Malham – 2 pods

YHA Borrowdale – 3 pods

Please note:
- Pods are unfurnished so you’ll need to bring along at least a sleeping bag and something comfortable to sleep on.
- We’re sorry but no dogs are allowed.
- Guests have access to hostel facilities including showers, toilets, self-catering kitchens and restaurants/café bars where available.

YHA have camping pods at four remarkable locations. These wooden structures are insulated, have an electricity supply and even a veranda so you can sit out and enjoy the beautiful view from this cosy little home-from-home.

Pods offer secure, private accommodation that’s insulated and has both heating and lighting – so they’re comfortable all year round.


Camping Pod Locations:

YHA Hawkshead
Grizedale Forest, the southern fells, Lake Windermere and Beatrix Potter country are all easily accessed from here. It’s an amazing place to base a walking, cycling or mountain biking holiday.  

YHA Grinton Lodge
An ideal place to come for a walking holiday with the Coast to Coast path passing nearby. This place is perfect for activity breaks and is surrounded by quality mountain biking trails.

YHA South Downs
Located in the National Park and close to Brighton, it’s ideal for low cost holidays near the south coast. The South Downs Way and magnificent 360-degree views await.  

YHA Borrowdale
For an overnight out of the ordinary, book a camping pod in this glorious Lake District setting. Located in a valley, the mountain scenery is stunning and already a favoured place to stay for Coast to Coast walkers.
