We’ve taken lots of steps to meet cyclists’ needs perfectly at Peaks and Pods.

Next to our car park you’ll find The Hub, which contains a secure bike storage building with vertical bike storage racks. (Bring your own bike locks.) We have two bike repair stands for cyclists to use, including some bike maintenance tools to borrow and essentials to buy, such as puncture repair kits and inner tubes. Outside The Hub there’s a hose pipe for use as a bike wash, and an outdoor sink/handwashing station.

There’s even a little laundry at the end of the building where you can wash and dry your clothes, or hang wet gear on hooks to dry in the bike area.

Each of our luxury camping pods has either an ensuite bathroom or its own private shower room next to the pod for that essential post-ride shower, all with heated towel rails. The double bed in each pod has a comfortable pocket-sprung mattress for a great night’s sleep, with luxury bedding and towels available for hire.

The pods have their own fully-equipped kitchenettes with small hobs, where light meals can be prepared. You might choose to buy a home-cooked meal from our selection of Peaks and Pods frozen meals, perfect to reheat in your microwave – no need to pre-order (unless you have specific dietary requirements).

In your private outdoor area, you’ll find a fire bowl that can be used as a barbecue grill, with charcoal sold on-site. We also provide breakfast and barbecue baskets that include meat from our local butchers – perfect to satisfy hungry cyclists.

Our wonderful pizza oven is available to hire for £12 (including all wood and pizza oven tools). The social space at The Hub, with pizza oven on the side, is the perfect place to relax with friends.

Settle is home to ‘3 Peaks Cycles’ – an excellent bike shop in the town centre. As well as a great selection of bikes, clothes and equipment, 3 Peaks Cycles offer bike hire and a new café. It’s open seven days a week. www.3peakscycles.com

Escape Bikes is 16 miles away on the A65 near Ingleton and has bikes, components, clothing and a service and repair workshop. Open seven days a week. www.escapebikeshop.com
