This little pod on Howe Farm, overlooking Coniston Lake, is named ‘Pod Cottage’ by its owner. A missed opportunity for the name Pottage, if you ask me. But not only is Pod Cottage a tiny little self contained gem with its own outdoor seating area, BBQ, and bike storage, it’s also surrounded by chickens and sheep, like some sort of perfect holiday fever-dream-come-true. The pod fits two people, but obviously, you’re gonna wanna like each other a lot - Pod Cottage is just 7m long and 3m wide. But it’s likely to be unlike anywhere else you’ve stayed before.
Sure, we all love swanning around on a weekend getaway, drinking pints in cosy pubs and taking long, countryside walks for hours on end. Sure, we have the best time ever soaking up the sunshine, going to local museums and drinking iced coffee on a beach wall. But where’s the pizzazz, I hear you say? Where’s the pop?
Well, we’ve got you. First, we got together everything you need for a trip to one of the UK’s most magnificent landscapes, the Lake District in Cumbria, where the hills and mountains roll away like water and the grass grows greener than anywhere else on earth. Sure, we did that. But we’ve also found the wackiest Airbnbs you can get there, from tiny pods and cabins to converted police stations. Yep, you heard that right. Find everything you need on Airbnb.
