  • "First and foremost I would like to say we had a very enjoyable stay, however there are a couple of things that could have made it better, the walk from the parking area to gander pod is at least 200 metres, not so far in daylight when it’s dry and you’re not carrying everything you need clothes food etc for a long weekend stay, but in heavy rain at night it would have been a nightmare, the small trolley provided was inadequate too small and the centre of gravity was too high so on the uneven ground it constantly wanted to tip over."

    The pod itself was lovely bright and warm however it was cramped I think instead of the table and chairs which we couldn’t use a storage unit for clothes would be a better use of the space and a couple of robust lap trays for eating while sat on the sofa (which is where we ate all our meals) would have been good, also the pod is really only fit to sleep 2 people but there is cutlery and plates bowls glasses for 4 or more and it was unnecessary and made it cluttered and busy however the addition of a bread/ carving knife would have been welcome as trying to cut fresh crusty bread with a steak knife wasn’t pretty, with all that said we did enjoy our stay and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it or stay again, and thank you for all the effort made to get the hot tub up and running it was fantastic.

  • "It was great, really enjoyed it."

    In the middle of nowhere but we still went out for some lovely meals locally. Great walks, lovely scenery. I have no complaints at all and would recommend as excellent value for money.
