    Clean, tidy and had everything we needed. The little touches like milk and Prosecco in the fridge and charcoal for the outside fire pit were lovely. Had a problem getting the wood fired hot tub to light but Sarah was straight down to help us and got it going. We had 3 wonderful days in that hot tub staring at the countryside and listening to the sheep. Would definitely go back.

  • "This pod is absolutely amazing and would recommend it to everyone."

    We booked as a birthday treat for the two of us and both had the most amazing time. There was a bottle of prosecco and milk in the fridge as we arrived (such a nice touch). Alan and Sarah could not have been more helpful and informative, leaving a book with things to do, places to go, restaurants and takeaways to eat from, you name it the book had it. They have literally thought of everything and I am so glad we found this pod. We will definitely be returning :)

    The nearest shops are a drive away so I’d recommend bringing food and drink. Lots of lovely touches like the Prosecco and dog treats! Owners are also very generous with wood / coal for the hot tub and fire pit. Highly recommend for couples coming from the city.

    The pod was lovely and cosy. The weather wasn't the best (Wales in February), so didn't use the firepit or dine alfresco but did manage a few nights in the hot tub. We took our telescope too and managed a night star gazing. The location is very secluded so perfect for getting away from it all!

We didnt do much walking as I have MS but the views are breathtaking but it was so nice to just. Do. Nothing. I will 100% be back, because I just need more time to do nothing.

About the location


Welshpool 8 miles.

The town of Llanfair Caereinion is built upon the site of an old Roman fort, in the valley of the River Banwy. It is a thriving town built around The Church of St Mary, with a Post Office, two supermarkets, and a selection of three different pubs. The annual Llanfair Caereinion Carnival is very popular with locals, and proceeds through the town with a full parade of floats and dancing troupes, providing a Rio carnival atmosphere. There is a river walk along the banks of the Banwy leading to an Arboretum, containing over 25 different species of British trees, an ideal place to explore before stepping back in time and jumping on the start of the narrow gauge heritage steam railway that runs 8.5 miles west to Welshpool. Welshpool nestles into the upper reaches of the picturesque Severn Valley near the border between Wales and England. This bustling market town is surrounded by rolling hills and glorious unspoilt countryside. There's a unique blend of shops offering arts & crafts, fashion & leisure, fresh produce, and quality pubs and restaurants, as well as the town centre’s restored cock fighting pit and interesting Heritage Trail. Visit the famous 13th Century Powis Castle, and the renowned Dingle Gardens. Enjoy a cruise in the summer sun along the Montgomery Canal or glorious walks and bike rides along National walking trails and the Offa’s Dyke Pathway.
