Try one of our comfy camping pods in N Yorkshire. The Small Pod is ideal for 2 people, and set in the 'grown ups only' section of our site. Dog friendly too! Bring everything you would camping - apart from the tent! IMPORTANT NOTE: there are no beds in ANY of our pods. However, we hire out airbeds for £3 each.

The space
Hillcrest Park is our 6 acre, holiday location in the northernmost of the Yorkshire Dales, Teesdale. Surrounded by farmland, it offers peace, tranquillity and beautiful views of Teesdale – yet is only 10mins from the A66. It is ideal for walkers, cyclists and dog owners and is close to Richmond, Barnard Castle, High Force Waterfall, Raby Castle and a host of other Dales attractions.

Camping Pods are solidly built, insulated wooden huts with good headroom and a carpeted interior floor area, with lights, a heater and an electric socket to power mobile phones, laptops and travel devices for that little bit of extra comfort. There is timber decking providing somewhere to sun-bathe, prepare food or hang your wet gear. The window and lockable French doors are double glazed and the Cumbrian sheep's wool insulation and fitted heater means that the Pod really is a year-round option.

We have a small shop onsite selling the basics and you will have full use of our centrally heated amenity block with free showers, loos, hairdryer, hot water for dishwashing, fridge, kettle, microwave and hob plus a coin operated laundry.

There are picnic tables/benches provided for each pod as well as hardstanding for barbeques.

If you don't want to cook outside for yourself, there is a good pub a mile and a half up the road in Caldwell (the Brownlow Arms) which serves food in the evenings. But if you fancy a good walking destination, you can wander down to Winston Gate (15mins walk away) and take the Teesdale Way along the river Tees.

All in all, the Pod really is 21st Century Camping. So why not revisit those fun childhood holidays, but this time with grown-up comforts.

Guest access
Guests have access to our centrally heated amenity block with free showers, loos and campers' kitchen. We also have a small shop on site selling the basics.

Other things to note
Remember staying in a camping pod is very much a camping experience - just in more comfort - so bring all your camping kit!

Ed and I own and run Hillcrest Park, which is a small holiday park in Teesdale - one of the Northernmost of the Yorkshire Dales. It's our home as well as our business, so we like to make sure people feel welcome, whether they're staying in one of our cottages, pods or bringing their own motorhome or caravan.
