1. The pod with a view in Coniston
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.
