Castle Guards Farm Retreat Glamping Pods

Where to find us?

  • We are located in Cumbria in our own secluded private valley close on the north western edge of the Lake District.
  • There are a very limited number of well spaced pods down a private track on a working farm.
  • The pods are located on an open valley side near ash trees where there are many hares.
  • There are excellent access routes for cars and cycles into the heart of the Lakes and the coast.
  • Our Mega bunker pods are bespoke to us, and are the largest pods that our suppliers have ever made.
  • Relax in wood fired family friendly hot tubs from Finland.

We are cyclist and walker friendly.
We are at the start of the National Cycle Route 10, connecting Cockermouth to North Shields via the Kielder Forest and Carlisle.

Hot Tub Information

Our hot tubs at Castle Guards Farm Retreat compliment our outdoor space,
allowing you to relax and enjoy the experience of outdoors in the warmth of your own private wood fired hot tub.

Imagine sitting back in a steaming wood fired hot tub and savouring the night sky
and the crackle of a log fire and sharing the experience with family and friends.
Our hot tubs are kind on the environment and on your skin with no harsh chemicals, thoroughly great for your wellbeing.

As the hot tub is heated by the fire, the only noise you will hear is
the occasional crackle of wood burning which adds to the natural ambience of bathing in a wood fired hot tub.

How quickly will the water heat up?

It takes approximately 2 hours in the summer months to heat up to 34C and 3 hours in the winter months.
Prior to your arrival we would prepare the hot tub so it is ready for you to use as soon as you arrive.

Can I control the temperature?

Yes! There is a thermometer to enable you to monitor the water temperature,
once the water is hot enough (do not exceed over 37C),
you can close the air intake on the stove and the fire will die down and stop heating the water.

How frequently is the water changed?

The hot tub is designed to give you a natural bathing experience,
and there are no noisy filter systems,
the water is therefore changed every 2 days and between changeovers.
If you decide to add the hot tub to your stay you will be provided with hardwood logs for use in the burner.
