Peaks and Pods | Rathmell
Welcome to Boustagill Farm – luxury camping pods in Yorkshire, for outdoor lovers
With sweeping views of the valleys and hills of the surrounding countryside, the clearest night skies and the freshest air you might have ever breathed, we offer an exceptional place to stay.
Get cosy in a well-equipped cedar-clad pod, with ensuite facilities or private bathroom. Relax in your own private outdoor space with fire bowl for cooking and gathering round. You can even enjoy a private wood-fired hot tub or mingle round the shared pizza oven.
The Yorkshire Dales, the Forest of Bowland and Gisburn Forest, Way of the Roses are right on our doorstep. Stay and chill or venture out and explore – the choice is yours!
Relax in your perfectly proportioned and private pod and outdoor space. Each pod is purposefully placed against its own dry-stone wall, nestled into a grassy bank for shelter.
Be up with the birds as the sun rises over the hills to reveal the blissful 360° views. Pad out onto your deck and breathe in the clean, fresh air before tucking into a hearty breakfast to gear you up for the exciting day ahead.
Evenings here are time to relax outdoors with a favourite tipple. Gaze at flames flickering around logs in your fire pit or cook up a storm over charcoal.
Park yourselves at your pod’s picnic table and indulge in fresh, locally sourced food, or cook delicious pizzas in the wood-fired oven.
Find out what’s included and our tempting optional extras
Each pod has a kitchenette with fridge (and ice box), hot running water, hob, microwave, kettle and toaster. They include crockery, cutlery and utensils – plates, bowls, mugs, glasses, cutlery, bottle opener, tin opener, chopping board, wooden spoon, whisk, scissors and tongs. A stowaway table and four chairs are included.
All pods have either an en-suite shower room or private access to their own shower room a short stroll away from the pod, all with a heated towel rail. There’s also a hairdryer in your under-bed storage drawer. The wooden double beds in each pod have pocket-sprung mattresses, and all pods have a comfortable sofa bed.
All our pods are cedar clad, well-insulated, heated, and have double-glazed security doors with rear opening window, power sockets and USB charger, smoke detector, internal and external LED lighting, and curtains or blinds. The pods have a slip-resistant decked area, twin cedar boot-storage boxes and a private outdoor space to the side with a wooden picnic bench and fire bowl, which transforms from barbecue to fire pit.
Geared up for Cycling
We’ve taken lots of steps to meet cyclists’ needs perfectly at Peaks and Pods. Next to our car park you’ll find The Hub, which contains a secure bike storage building with vertical bike storage racks. (Bring your own bike locks.)
We have two bike repair stands for cyclists to use, including some bike maintenance tools to borrow and essentials to buy, such as puncture repair kits and inner tubes. Outside The Hub there’s a hose pipe for use as a bike wash, and an outdoor sink/handwashing station.
There’s even a little laundry at the end of the building where you can wash and dry your clothes, or hang wet gear on hooks to dry in the bike area.
Each of our luxury camping pods has either an ensuite bathroom or its own private shower room next to the pod for that essential post-ride shower, all with heated towel rails. The double bed in each pod has a comfortable pocket-sprung mattress for a great night’s sleep, with luxury bedding and towels available for hire.

“If this is camping - bring it on”
I love the great outdoors but kipping on an airbed in a damp and drafty tent lost it's appeal a long time ago. Luckily, a stay at Peaks and Pods gives you all the fun of camping, with all the comforts of a luxurious hotel room. Joanne and John have thought of every single detail to make a stay with them in their stunningly beautiful corner of the world, both comfortable and memorable. It was lovely to huddle and chat round the fire pit as a family, while barbecuing and toasting marshmallows. Even better, to then slide under sumptuous bedding for a good night's sleep and slip into the ensuite shower in the morning. And it's not every day that you wake up and look out the window to see deer passing by and starlings performing an early morning murmuration. Thank you for sharing and making us feel so much at home :)
Such a quirky cool little place that has had every little touch thought of. From the lemon drizzle cake on arrival to the key codes for the private shower room, hand washing area , laundry room , Hub with wood fired pizza oven we couldn't fault the facilities. The pods are peaceful and incredibly well laid out for a family of 4. The fire pits are a great experience and we loved having a go at cooking our own pizzas in the pizza oven at the "hub" so thoughtful and lovely to find a laundry room fully stocked with board games and jigsaws for the children and the Hub is an amazing space to use for socialising and enjoying the views. Gisburn forest and the Gruffalo trail is only a 10 min drive away and great fun.We chose a 'Green top' pod with private shower room and it was all immaculate and is definitely somewhere we will look to book again in the future.
“A perfect break”
What a fantastic place to stay! Amazing views across stunning countryside, friendly chickens come to say hello and then there is the pod - a home from home, made even more special by the little personal touches such as a delicious lemon cake, hot chocolate and marshmallows, breakfast hampers and delicious pizza cooked in the outdoor oven. Can’t recommend it enough and we will definitely be back!
My partner and I spent a wonderful weekend here. We opted for a green top pod with seperate shower room. When we arrived at the pod there was a welcome note and a tin containing the most wonderful lemon drizzle cake. The pod was immaculate and contains everything you could need, including tea, coffee and sugar. We bought a firepit pack which came with matches, marshmallows and skewers. The shower room was lovely and clean. The shower was roomy and the water warm. The communal area is a good size and tastely decorated. The pizza oven was fun to use. Joanne and John were warm and welcoming and we can't wait to go back.
