    Ideal for older couples, no phone signal and Wi-Fi was non existent, internet tv but Facebook/Disney + would not load, kept saying connection errror, I run my own business so even when I’m away I can’t turn my phone off and having no signal/Wi-Fi was detrimental

  • "We had a lovely stay here it was quite relaxing and had everything we need."

    There was a few cobwebs we seen and dust so I think the skirten board and ect needs to be cleaned better. I think they should have under its bed draws where you could store your clothes as space is tight in the pod. There was alot of garden space bbq hot tub and firepit. I don't think there was enough coal/wood for two nights thought and I think the garden needed some TLC maybe more flowers ect to brighten it up a little. But part from that it was a great stay definitely will be booking halmore pod again! Thank you so much *5

    , out door lighting definitely could do with looking into due to what seemed the main light near the hot tub wasn’t working all through the stay, inside the pod couldn’t fault it, maybe add a standard electric kettle which would be easier. Bed was extremely comfortable. Would recommend.

    ! Nothing was too much trouble. She was so friendly from the first day, lighting the hot tub and telling us where to shop locally. The information in the pod about places to visit was really helpful, Berkeley Castle is a great place to visit. The pod itself is perfect for a mini-break. It is compact but has everything you need. This was our first stay in a pod and once we had climatised to the space and surroundings we really enjoyed it. I would recommend this holiday home to anyone!

    Our host Sarah went above & beyond ensuring the hot tub was warmed up for us for our arrival & even went as far as to leave some Christmas gifts for my children which was a lovely touch. Facilities were great with a stocked kitchenette, shower room, WiFi & a TV with Netflix & prime video. The only thing I would recommend would be the inclusion of a toaster in the kitchenette.

    My one criticism was rubbish disposal. There was one bin and nowhere apart from an odd shelf to place recycling. This was a minor issue but perhaps a recycling bin could be obtained. All in all the holiday was great, the owner at hand and I have already recommended the pod to friends. A perfect getaway during the pandemic.
