Nestled in the heart of the Forest of Bowland AONB, this glamping pod is ideal for hikers and bikers who want a base more substantial than a tent and less fuss than a hotel. Want privacy with absolutely nobody else around? We can almost guarantee you won't see a single person while you're at the pod, so you can sit back and enjoy the stunning panoramic views that stretch for miles over the Dunsop and Ribble Valleys from the hot tub, champagne in hand, with nobody to disturb you.

The space
The Shepherd’s rest is set in its own valley with panoramic views. It’s location makes it the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Anyone who stays at the pod will have great access to walks, cycling and adventure. Gisburn forest mountain bike trails is a 15 minute drive, there a plenty of walks to do in the area and some great places to eat out.

The pod is made out of a solid wood frame and boasts three sides of glass to fully take in the panoramic views. The pod is split in half, with one side providing a comfortable and relaxing living area. There is a log burner, sofa bed and kitchen unit in this side of the pod. The other side of the pod is the bedroom and bathroom, complete with double bed, toilet, sink and shower.

The hot tub is located on decking outside the pod, and backs onto an old barn in the field. The hot tub is filled with natural spring water. It is a beautiful experience to sit in the hot tub as sunset falls over the valley.

I’m a sheep farmer located in the Forest of Bowland, Lancashire. I enjoy hill walking and exploring new areas. I’ve built two self catered cabins (The Shepherd’s Rest and Hen Harrier Lodge) which are both located on my family farm in the Hodder Valley.
