The Pod couldn’t be more perfect for a quiet weekend getaway. Sally and Andy had thought of everything, from marshmallows to toast on a fire to handwritten messages wishing a Happy Birthday. The pod and little touches were great, I would highly recommend, and certainly stay again…

Fantastic little hideaway. Stayed here for 2 nights when visiting Alton Towers. So glad we stayed here and not a run of the mill hotel. To have a lovely fire on a cold evening was brilliant. Highly recommend this little pod. Extremely clean and cozy.

What a beautiful visit we had! We had a troublesome journey down and were greeted before we even got to the pod with offers of help and hospitality. When we arrived the fire was lit and the place was clean and welcoming! The pod was exactly like that pictures and description! We …
