    We spent two nights in the peaceful countryside to celebrate a 30th birthday with our dog. The pods had everything that you would require during your stay. The owners had gone all out with the detail from Prosecco on arrival, biscuits for the dog and fresh milk in the fridge for coffee, tea also all provided. We really enjoyed our stay at the pods and would highly recommend them to our friends and family. We had the beat stay and was welcomed by the owners on arrival. Really relaxing getaway with all the luxury's. We would 100% return.

  • "Sarah & Andy were great hosts!"

    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!

    The pod has everything you need and the owner Sarah was really helpful and on hand if we needed anything. The woodfired tub was perfect for these cold winter evenings, it was peaceful, secluded and certainly helped us escape from our busy lifestyle and relax. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

  • "I'm a busy person usually, as is my husband but it was his 40th and our wedding anniversary this particular weekend, so I booked this getaway as a surprise for him."

    We agreed early on I wouldnt takr the work laptop and him gis work phone so the we could just ... be. It was perfction, I haven't known peace like that in many years, it was the most beautiful thing to just be. And not worry about work, school, nursery, cleaning and any other needy thigs life has to throw. I had mever been in a Hottub before, it was lovely. Thoroughly enjoyed. 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. Its soo peaceful, the teabags were even beautiful!! The dog also loved it, there is absolutely nothing about this little getaway I could possibly criticise. Thank you so much

    The pod surprisingly spacious and really comfortable. It's in a great location, really private. The hot tub, fire pit and decking area are great. Only thing I would say it could benefit from would be a microwave but other than that it was perfect! Would definitely stay again.

    It felt spacious and was laid out well so you didn’t feel on top of each other whilst there. The hosts were very kind and helpful and were on hand if we needed anything.

    Having said that we really enjoyed having no one else around. The hot tub could do with a gazebo as we did go in December and it was raining, however we would not let that stop us going in. Overall this was a great little escape, really quiet and exactly what we needed.

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.
