  • "Highly recommend, too many "dog friendly" places allow dogs to roam freely which is frankly botherson!"

    As an avid fan of restraining my dog 24 hours a day I was pleased to finally find a location that aligns with my way of thinking. If you're a fan of Escape Rooms, you get to experience the reverse by using clues to find your way IN to the camp site! It really gave our trip a kick start and only took 30 minutes! Quick but challenging fun. The level of care and service received was above and beyond, I was in the area of the Worcester BBQ Tong and Utensil Convention (WBBQTUC for any grill-heads out there) so i was overjoyed to find that all BBQ utensils had been removed, allowing me to take my collection for a test drive! Not surprising when you find that the host is clearly someone who knows about BBQing, evident by " heavily seasoned" grills left on the BBQ. Impressive as it must have taken years to build up the level of burnt on food. Even my partners Umbrellaphobia (fear of umbrellas/parasols that can functionally open) was catered for. Very progressive and accommodating.

    . it was super clean, had everything we needed including tea/coffee/shower gel etc, the hot tub was amazing and so easy to use, the views were breathtaking and really should be showed off in photos even more and the owner was so lovely and helpful! Was better than we expected, highly recommend :)

    The pod it's self was clean on arrival, hot tub getting warm already. Nigel the owner was really helpful. The hot tub was amazing, once we knew how to warm it up it was really easy to maintain, amazing views sitting in the hot tub seeing over to the lakes too. A very much needed peaceful break. Thank you and we look forward to staying again ☺️

  • "Absolutely fantastic location."

    Stunning views and beautiful walks. Nigel the host was incredibly friendly, helpful and welcoming. The hot tub was great. Nigel got it up to temp for us on the first evening which was really kind and we used it lots during our stay. From reading previous reviews, we took additional towels, a bath mat and an old towel to put on the floor by the front door. We also took our air fryer. All highly recommended if you visit. The only slightly disappointing element was the cleanliness. The bathroom was quite dirty, bedsheets on the main bed gritty, and windows grubby. However we would definitely come again. Would be great to hire both pods with friends. Lots of great places to visit nearby. We loved Bewdley!

  • "We had a great stay."

    There were 6 of us, x3 children, x3 adults. The logistics of sleeping went fine as there was a fold out bed in the living room which was also a sofa. The main attraction for the children was the hot tub which was amazing, I only went in once. In the summertime you can also use the BBQ which was also a nice touch (even though we never used it). The kitchen facilities were basic and there wasn’t an oven, only a microwave but it was called a microwave oven so maybe we never used it to its advantage? We bought out slow cooker and air fryer anyway so we were good. There was some LED lighting which set the mood and also, Bluetooth speakers installed into the ceiling which was really cool. Things I think would make the pod better… A rug by the entrance because we’d take out shoes off first as they picked up a lot of mud and we never wanted that in the pod. A mat in the bathroom which would stop water going all over the floor which happened. A potato masher although if you’re old school you can just use a fork like we did. Otherwise a great stay. I’d come back. Oh and the host was nice too. Thanks Nigel.

  • "We had a lovely stay!"

    Beautiful scenery surrounding the property, pod was a good size much bigger than we had expected, hot tub was warm and ready for use on arrival, very quick to warm up the following days too, nice seating area outside with patio heater which made it so we could sit outside late October early November, all beds were very comfortable to sleep in, good sized kitchen area to prep and make meals and good sized bathroom. Overall the property was really good, we are a family of 6 and for us it was a perfect size. The host, Nigel met us on arrival and showed us to the pod, he showed us how to use the hot tub and around the pod. He visited us the next day to make sure everything was okay and re did the hot tub for us. He was very welcoming, helpful and keen to ensure we had the best stay. We visited Habberley Trail which was a really good family day out, 25 mins drive. Would definitely recommend that to anyone staying with children! Worcester city centre 20 mins drive, good for charity shopping! & We ate out at The Holt Fleet, family friendly, quiet and beautiful food. 5 mins drive. Really good property and location, we will definitely be returning in the future!

  • "Amazing cabin in a great little spot, very peaceful and the dark skies and stargazing was a bonus."

    Hot tub was great once we got it warm enough. Needed to buy more kindling and firelighters and the logs available were not quite dry enough, but we managed and it was so nice to use on the chilly evenings. A doormat inside the doors to the cabin would have helped to keep the floor clean. The shower leaked all over the bathroom floor but we managed this and have already let the owners know, but this wouldn’t stop us from booking again as we loved it. Only other suggestions would be to have some blankets/extra pillows available, and to be able to park the car a little closer to the cabin itself, but we will definitely visit again.

  • "Tamina was a lovely stay!"

    Beautiful surroundings and friendly staff. We had the perfect weather for our stay. The main bed was uncomfortable and the hot tub took a while to heat up. Unfortunately dogs were not allowed off the lead in the garden area, which we respected. However, if we had known this prior we probably would have chosen somewhere else due to one of us having to sit with the dog whilst the other one went in the hot tub.

    We will most definitely book again in the future! From the minute we arrived Nigel and his son were really accommodating and nothing was too much for them to do, the hot tub was lovely and warm and the views absolutely phenomenal, it was so peaceful at night just the sound of nature. The lodge itself was just perfect, there was plenty of glass and tableware available, plus all cooking gadgets. The bbq and patio heater was a great touch too! One thing I would say is that the plug in the shower needed to be cleaned it was rather clogged up with hair which meant the water drained slow but other than that we actually couldn’t fault the place, everything was just perfect and beautiful. Thank you for a lovely stay we look forward to visiting in the future

  • "We loved our stay at Tamina - the facilities were generally great."

    We loved being out in the countryside and the hot tub was amazing. We found the contact on site - Nigel - very friendly and helpful. However, the double bed in the property was SO uncomfortable that neither myself or my partner had a good night sleep the three nights we were there. I feel bad saying that as we really did have a lovely stay but given how high spec the cabin is (Bluetooth speakers in the ceiling, mood lighting etc.) I didn’t think the bed was in keeping with that. We thought the property was difficult to find and I think better instructions as well as a correct phone number could have been given in the Sykes instructions. Neither the postcode nor the what three words took us to the entrance to the farm and we had to be guided to the property so I think better instructions on this would make the customer experience better.

  • "Amazing views."

    great hot tub, but was dissapointed with facilities for example, there were 2 places to hang clothes but no coat hangers. only 2 towels and 1 hand towel for 3 people for 4 nights. only 1 tea towel, the hob did not work, hole in double duvet cover, mattresses very thin. We left a night early due to this. If these issues were addressed i would then highly recommmend staying here.

    Thank you for your feedback. On arrival all visitors are met with a key and told that if they require more towels just to ask. We will ensure that there are more hooks for coats etc put in the accommodation. Property Owner
