Join today and save everytime you stay!
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 Borrowdale – 3 pods
- 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.
