    Lovely touches with the brownies and Prosecco on arrival. The walk to the stone circle from the pod was really nice and well signposted. We couldn’t have asked for anything more for our mini-moon after just getting married

  • "A lovely stay."

    The pod was beautiful. Surroundings were beautiful. Lots of information about how things worked which was really helpful. Suprise goodies left for us which was very appreciated. A very well appointed place. Shower is spacious and lots of hot water. Hot tub is private and well maintained. If you are visiting, remember to take handwash and some spray or wipes to clean after cooking etc as these are not provided. The fridge was humming which I just mention as it might need to be looked at, it was quite annoying. But I'm sure it's easily fixed. Only downside is the bed. It's an ottoman one with storage. Great idea, but it did not feel at all secure and sturdy for two plus size visitors. We were scared we would break it. Thank you for a lovely stay. The attention to detail and the way the pods are maintained and looked after was very appreciated.

    Beautiful scenery, clean and modern facilities and a hot tub! The small touches sets this pod apart, lots of info on what to do in the area left inside which was extremely helpful, free wifi (which was fast) the delicious homemade brownies and a bottle of prosecco waiting when you arrive. Lots of tea, coffee, sugar, and milk available (not just one or two) meaning you never had to want for anything in this stay. Had a little chat with the owner about walks in the area (she was lovely to speak to) when testing the water quality on the hottub. They really do look after you ! Woukd 100% recommend staying here and will do so again.

Sunrise Pods

Enjoying vast views of the beautiful countryside within the Shropshire Hills AONB, you can find this delightful set of quirky and unique pods, providing fantastic accommodation for exploring the gorgeous surroundings. Take a break from a fast-paced life into the country with your loved ones and make these cute and compact pods your temporary homes, having one pod for each couple, you can come together to spend the days roaming the hills, and then retreat to your own space when night falls. Each pod has a nearly identical layout accessed via a fairy-style curved door, including a sitting area with a Smart TV, a modest kitchen space with all the essential appliances along with an intimate dining area, along with excellent WiFi so you can stay connected. To the rear of the pod is the snug double bed tucked in the corner, and a separate shower room to freshen up in. Outside each of the pods is a luxurious hot tub, a welcome sight of warm bubbles after a day of walking to relax you into your evening. The immediate area of the dwelling makes for a tranquil base, with plenty of opportunities for avid walkers; in reach of Mitchell’s Fold Stone Circle across the fields, you can find adventure on your doorstep. For all of your local amenities, the nearby village of Chirbury offers a modest selection of shops and eateries, or for even more excitement, venture into Bishop’s Castle where you will be greeted by historical wonder in the form of listed timber framed buildings, quaint shops and a “House on Crutches”. Walkers can delight in venturing along the Offa’s Dyke Path for some wonderful walking along the Welsh/English border, while heading over the border and into Wales can bring you to the large Norman ruins of Montgomery Castle, the National Trust’s Powis Castle and Garden and the wonderful Welshpool & Llanfair Railway. Sunrise Pods will bring you right into the centre of the natural landscape, an idyllic romantic haven in Shropshire.
