Drybeck Farm Glamping
We were invited to stay at Drybeck Farm Glamping in October for a weekend break in Cumbria! The review is completely independent, though the stay was gifted.
Glamping is something that we’ve only ever tried once before and we love being stripped back to bare essentials to play games and reminisce with each other.
We had a lovely welcome from the owner who walked us down to our house and explained everything to us. He could not have helped us anymore, he was wonderful.
We stayed in the Lantern House, the Lantern House featured a quirky boho style which was decorated by a local interior business. It was very cosy, with a super comfy double bed, log burner, table, kitchen area with sink and running water along with a microwave and all the utensils and cutlery you would need. This house was set back from the others and was very private, it had its own compost toilet to save you walking during the day or night to the communal toilets which we found very helpful. It also had its own parking area for multiple cars and its own little garden area with BBQ pit, benches and a kaldewei kuatsu bath tub inspired by Japanese bathing culture. You can immerse your whole body in the bath without lying down! How’s that for a new experience?
The view from the Lantern House was just greenery and trees, you felt isolated and it really was so peaceful.
There are other houses to stay in on the farm too and as Drybeck Farm is dog friendly it’s a great experience for your dog too! Oscar loved the open space outside of the house to run around and play with his toys, he also loved all of the blankets inside the house that he could get comfortable on for his naps after his hikes in the local area.
We hiked to Latrigg summit on the first day of our stay and up to Castle Crag on the second day. We loved knowing that after all of our hiking efforts, we would be going back to the Lantern House where it was nice and warm and cosy.
We would definitely recommend Drybeck Farm to anybody who wants to go Glamping and take their pups along with them! Drybeck farm is situated between the Lake District and the Pennines so it’s also in a great location for hiking and walking!
