  • "We absolutely loved our stay at the Callow Pod this weekend, my children especially absolutely loved it."

    The amenities within the pod kitchen were that of home almost it’s so well thought through. We loved the surroundings, the stone circle walk, the style of the pod being so cosy. It’s been a joy to visit, well worth the money and we will 100% be booking to come back next year. Thank you for having us!

  • "The place is amazing, nice large downstairs, if you are over 6,2ft then the upstairs might be a bit tight."

    The whole place was warm with the heating when needed and the hot tub was great with the different lights and jets. Great walks to the nearby stone circle and castles such as Powys castle are amazing and not far. We look forward to come back

  • "I stayed at Callow Pod with my two teenagers and dog."

    The pod was extremely well equipped and presented with the most beautiful finishing touches. I very much appreciated the attention to detail and how the space was used - the four of us were very comfortable. With walks from the doorstep offering incredible views, perfect privacy, security for our pup and warm cosy furnishings we could not have asked for more. The owners were beyond accommodating and helpful. As seasoned pod dwellers I can safely say this is the best so far. We will certainly be back and cannot recommend highly enough!

  • "Wonderful, all you could need."

    Great views over the countryside while lounging in the hot tub. So peaceful and relaxing. Certainly made use of all the space well. Quality accommodation, though a little limiting on height for my 6ft 4in son

  • "We had a wonderful stay in your adorable pod!"

    Everything was perfect! You provided us with everything we needed and more! The views out the front were amazing, the walks behind the pod were enjoyed by us all, especially our dog. The hot tub was brilliant and perfect to relax in after a long trek. The pod was warm, cosy and clean and made for a super enjoyable stay. The brownies and Prosecco were such a lovely touch and put an extra layer of icing on an already perfect cake! Thank you. We will certainly look forward to a return visit.

    ..beautiful surroundings and blissful tranquillity. We will definitely be booking to stay again soon. I highly recommend stargazing while in the hot tub, and waking up early to enjoy the sunrise.

  • "The property was spotless inside and out."

    Had everything we needed for a chilled girls weekend. The hot tub was perfect and well maintained. The owner popped by and was very friendly and helpful. All the pods were perfectly spaced out and arranged so you didn’t feel like you were on top of each other. The location is great for relaxing and walking. The garden was 100% secure, which was great with the dog. Would definitely return and recommend.

  • "This is a new (opened late December 2022) quirky, comfortable, warm, well equipped and clean pod in a quiet location."

    It is a the last in line of 4 pods (the others are single story ones) and as it is at the end of the road no one has reason to come up to your pod. It is accessed up a well made farm track with very little around it and that makes for a lovely peaceful location. There is also very little light pollution in the immediate area so on a clear night you can see many stars, fantastic whilst sat in the hot tub. The owner was lovely and helpful on local things to do and left a well received welcome pack for us on arrival. The sunrise view through the front upstairs bedroom window (from the warmth and comfort of bed) across the valley on a clear sky morning was stunning. The hot tub was spotlessly clean and it was warm and ready to use immediately on arrival, it was also chemical checked by the owner daily. The walks directly from the pod on the hills behind it are endless and a fantastic benefit to have from the doorstep. The wifi at the pod was strong and stable and there is a good phone signal there too. The pod is not suitable to all due to the tight spiral staircase and the open plan and low ceiling bedrooms, but it was absolutely brilliant for us (2 adults and an 11 year old).

  • "We absolutely loved this pod."

    It is set off the beaten track with no traffic noise and absolutely stunning views. The pod was immaculate and had everything we needed, and the bed was super comfy (very low ceilings upstairs but we found them very fun!) On our last night we lay in the hot tub and looked at the stars which were very clear, it was brilliant. Local walks were brilliant, especially through the gate up to the stone circle. Our dog loved the space around the pod, there was plenty of space. Although there are 4 pods together, we didn't hear our neighbours once. We fully didn't want to leave!! Highly recommended.
