Ideal place for peace & quiet

We loved it, the place was very clean and didn’t smell of dogs like others we have previously stayed in. The surroundings were gorgeous and so quiet it was a perfect get away for our dogs wanting to avoid fireworks.
Only downside was the amount of rain we had during the weekend meant the garden was waterlogged but we appreciate you can’t control the weather.
We would very much like to come back and hope you’ll have us x

Lovely little secluded cabin
Reviewed on 07/10/2023
Everything about this place was wonderful. Very luxurious and modern but also minimalist. Everything you need for a good holiday. The hot tub was wonderful too and maintained almost daily by staff. Very clean with modern and very clean oven, hob, kettle, toaster, and microwave as well as under counter fridge and mini dishwasher. Very secluded and rural but only 10 mins drive into town. Love the secluded garden and felt very private and close to nature.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed on this site. The pods are sensational, roomy, clean, modern and comfortable.
The hot tub is a bonus and is maintained by the site staff daily.
I would recommend this company and these Pods highly. I will definitely be returning. If you have dogs, you can relax, knowing they are safely contained in the large garden.

A wonderful peaceful self catering accommodation which was spotless on arrival.
The grounds and everything about the pod was superb.
Loved the location as remote but a 5 mins drive from a super town with pub, take away, convenience store and tea rooms options a plenty.
Hosts were also super and even gifted us an Easter egg on Sunday!
