    We were worried we may be cold in a pod as we have stayed in others before however this was not the case here, the underfloor heating is perfect! The pod is well maintained and has everything you need! It is well situated to travel into Cornwall and Devon. The surrounding area was very peaceful and we enjoyed a few visits from the friendly sheepdogs, and enjoyed watching the pheasants across the fields. Thank you for a great stay!

  • "There was a damaged floor and one of the drawers fronts kept falling off."

    Although this was explained to us, it was a bit disappointing considering the money we paid. However, I have to say, it was in a lovely location and not too far from other towns and villages. Jean was a lovely host who gave us a wave to see we were ok. The Pod was something different and we are glad we got to experience it.

    Glad you enjoyed your holiday and yes we did explain about the damaged floor and it was explained that it can not be fixed until November as we have guest staying in the pod until then and as it doesn’t affect your holiday in the least we are waiting until then when the manufacturers are coming down to fix it as I explained to you when you came. The drawer is fixed and is working perfectly now we could have done it while your were there but we don’t like to disturb our guests on their well earned break . It’s such a-shame you have to mark me down on 2 things that were fully explained to you when you arrived . Property Owner

  • "We loved our mini break it was very needed!"

    ! Location: The pod is located in a very quiet area. It is on a working farm but this was no issuse as we felt we were secluded and had all the privacy needed. A car is recommended to get around, car space is available just outside. One evening we walked to the local pub to have dinner and daily walk around the area down to the lake. Plenty of beaches within a 30 min drive, loads of national trust walks and sights around too. Pod: The pod has been finished to a high standard. There was Christmas lights decorated in the pod which made it feel magical. The pod had everything we needed, we cooked a few meals with the plug in hob with ease. The bed was super comfortable for a good night sleep. Their is a little garden space to sit outside if wanted. The pod was really clean and had everything we needed. Hosts: The hosts were just a text away if we needed anything. On our arrival she popped in to say hello and allowed us to ask questions about the local area. Super friendly and put us at ease. Hosts dogs were beautiful and super friendly. Overall we enjoyed our stay it was much needed and the fact we could bring our dog on his first hoilday with ease made it even more special. Already recommended the pod to our family and friends and would happily stay again. Thank you :)

    Jean, Willis and their daughter were lovely and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. The cream tea and the apple juice left for us was very kind of them and much appreciated. The Pod was warm and comfortable and very well equipped which helped make up for the wet weather we had for most of the week. We managed to visit all the local towns and had some enjoyable walks in between showers, with our dog Benny. We would definitely recommend a stay here as it was peaceful and the variety of birds we watched from the kitchen window was amazing. All in all a little gem of a place.

    For a short stay it was great and for our purpose it was ideal. The only negative was that the local power company turned the electricity off for almost a whole day (1 of our 2 days) which was inconvenient. Overall we enjoyed our stay and will definitely consider booking again the next time we need to visit the area.

About the location


Tavistock 9 miles; Launceston 11.5 miles; Plymouth 14.6 miles.

Callington is a Cornish market town, rich in mining heritage and overlooked by Kit Hill, the highest point in the area, donated to the people of Cornwall by Prince Charles to celebrate the birth of Prince William. From the top of Kit Hill there are fabulous views across south-east Cornwall as far as Plymouth Sound. Callington is set in the heart of the Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and offers a good selection of shops, inns and cafes, as well as being the home of Ginsters Cornish pasties. A few miles away, the quaint village of Calstock clings to the steep banks of the river Tamar and is dominated by the splendid Calstock Railway Viaduct, a giant 11-arched stone construction supporting one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines running through the Tamar Valley. Other interesting places along the river are Cotehele, a beautiful historic house and gardens owned by the National Trust with a small quay and inn, and Morwhellam Quay, a theme park that staged a living history production for the BBC and where visitors can explore the rich mining heritage and watch blacksmiths, potters and craftsmen at work. The pannier market town of Tavistock is only nine miles from Callington and is well worth a visit on your way to a day’s walk on Dartmoor. A splendid base to explore south Cornwall and West Devon.
