  • "Fantastic little property for a perfect week away without the kids, it has everything you need and more."

  • "We had an amazing time, loved watching the alpacas and listening to the birds and seeing the sea in the distance."

    Thank you to the owner for sorting out a hair dryer, a welcome addition I'm sure . The place was spotless and had all the comforts to make an enjoyable stay, highlights included a coffee machine, a really decent amount of teabags and toilet roll (it's these little things that make a difference!!) , robes for hot tub and heated towel rail. Only things we would suggest is bath mat and plastic glasses for hot tub. We loved our stay and the owners should be really proud of what they have achieved, it's a beautiful building in a beautiful setting. If you are reading this and thinking about booking, just do it! It's an amazing place to get away from it all and there's some lovely beaches near by to just take it the beauty of Wales :)

  • "A truly great holiday in accommodation of a very high standard."

    Great location and really helpful and obliging owners. Through other feedbacks we took with us a microwave, which was certainly beneficial, but by the end of the holiday, the owners received delivery of a microwave for the pod. Would certainly stay here again. Thank you Martin

  • "A lovely, luxury stay, with beautiful countryside and sea views."

    We particularly enjoyed sitting in the hot tub, taking in the stunning backdrop. The property would benefit from a welcome pack to enhance a stay further, with key property and local information. Overall a wonderful stay and will definitely be recommending to friends and family. Lovely friendly owners who made us feel very welcome. Property superbly located.

  • "What a lovely place Piglet Pod is!"

    The location overlooking the sea, on a quiet Alpaca farm, off a quiet country lane is just wonderful. The pod itself is roomy enough for two with lovely king-size bed, a good shower and a fabulous hot tub on the decking which from which you can enjoy the sea views and watch Kites as they hover and swoop whilst enjoying a glass of whatever takes your fancy. There's a small kitchen too. The local villages and towns are delightful with plenty of good places to eat. If I could improve on Piglet Pod it would be to have somewhere to hang clothing as well as some sort of clothes storage if not an actual chest of drawers. A table and chairs more suited to eat at indoors would be great for use in the colder season, like when we visited and a microwave in the kitchen would make cooking a little easier. I wouldn't like these minor things to detract from how totally lovely Piglet Pod is, rather as help for the owners, who we briefly met and where really very welcoming.

  • "The Piglet Pod was exactly as advertised, comfortable and luxurious!"

    The hot tub was wonderful :) As a thought for future guests, we were surprised to find there was no micro-wave or soap provided, although closer inspection of the instructions would probably have shown us this. Everything else was lovely, towels, sliders and dressing gowns for use after using the hot tub, and a great king size bed :)

  • "Visited at the beginning of November and drove from Hertfordshire which was around 5 and a half hours and it was so worth the travel."

    The pod is so cozy and could even rival some hotel rooms in terms of aesthetics - Even had coffee pods, an array of different teas, and shower gels in the bathroom. Everything you needed was there! The hot tub was ready to go for us to use which was great. Haven't stayed anywhere like this before and it was everything the description and other reviews said... The view in the morning was lovely and even had the alpaca's to keep us company. We were also blessed with an amazing sunset on the first evening. We had to leave a day earlier than planned so was unable to meet the owners but would love to say THANK YOU and hopefully see you again soon! :) Highly recommend!

  • "The perfect relaxing getaway!"

    Had high expectations before arriving… they were all exceeded! The pod had everything we needed: a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom has a beautiful shower and the main room has the comfiest bed. The hot tub is mostly under the roof so even in the rain we made the most of the bubbles and the gorgeous view. We would come back for the hot tub alone! The hosts were incredibly accommodating, helped create the most amazing weekend for a special occasion. Definitely our pick for our next staycation.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for the amazing feedback! Falch fod y syrpreis wedi plesio! Diolch! Property Owner

  • "We were greeted by our friendly and accommodating hosts who left a fabulous and more than generous basket of local produce for us."

    The pod is finished to a very high standard and is extremely comfortable and cosy. Set in lovely countryside it is a great retreat for much needed peace and relaxation. The hot tub is a welcome addition with fluffy bathrobes and slippers provided. The Moody Calf (restaurant, bar and shop with locally sourced produce) and NISA store are great for stocking up on supplies. In nearby Aberaeron you will find locally sourced produce at the butchers, bakery and organic food stores. Also a number of great restaurants and pubs. The Hive, Harbourmaster and The New Celtic all have great food and are well worth booking in advance for. This is a great base for exploring Wales with some lovely costal and country walks. We had a wonderful holiday, thank you.
