  • "A really beautiful and peaceful place to stay."

    Very clean and the owner has the perfect balance of being friendly and welcoming but also leaving you to enjoy your stay. Excellent maintenance of the hot tub ensures your safety and cleanliness of the water…. And what a fantastic place to enjoy a coffee in the morning sunshine and to enjoy a glass or two of wine by moonlight

  • "Stiperstones Pod exceeded our expectations!"

    The pod was fantastically designed and beautifully clean with everything we needed for our weekend away. The location was stunning and the hot tub made the trip! Thank you for a fantastic stay.

  • "The area is very nice."

    It was a great experience and 4 days was too little, next time will have to be for longer. The hottub was amazing and the area was nice and quite. We will recommend this to everyone as we have a really good time. One recommendation I would make for the future is have a roof or something to put above the hottub in case it rains so it can still be used. Overall it was an excellent experience and will be coming back again for sure.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay, everything was as described and yet still exceeded our expectations."

    Only slight issue was with the shower, whilst we were able to get it hot after speaking with Angie, we found the shower head holder would flip forward whilst in use. Beyond that minor issue though everything was perfect and we will be back!

    Hi! Apologies for the shower head, I have since fixed this after seeing your feedback and knowing it was an issue. Thanks so much for your feedback. Many thanks Angie Property Owner

    My partner proposed on Valentine’s Day which made the holiday even more special! We enjoyed the hot tub so much and wanted to take it with us! Overall very comfy and the smart tv was an added bonus as we brought our laptop for Netflix! Same with coffee and sugar we had brought our own! :)

  • "Had a really lovely stay."

    The peace and quiet coupled with the views are amazing! Has plenty in the pod, especially for the size without feeling cramped. Lovely touch with the cake, Prosecco and milk upon arrival! Hot tub was perfect. The only things that could improve is the sofa; found it rather hard and uncomfortable. Also maybe a couple of hooks to hang coats above the shoe rack (just like the ones you have for cups would be fine). Not major issues at all and we booked our return visit whilst still there so not enough to put us off!

    Thankyou so much for leaving such a lovely review. Just wanted to reply on the sofa, we are currently awaiting a new sofa for this pod so this will resolve the issue Property Owner

    Lovely to have a hot Tub and be able to sit outside and enjoy stunning views and also very near to a lovely hillside walking area. Only issue was it being a little to secluded meant to go into town or out for dinner was a drive but apart from this small detail would highly recommend.

    I’d had doubts about glamping I have to admit but upon walking into the holiday pod, was very pleasantly surprised. All the facilities you could have wanted and nothing like a caravan. Very well fitted out and spotlessly clean, located in amazing surroundings. We received a bottle of Prosecco, milk and even dog treats for Oscar. We will definitely be returning, loved every minute.

  • "The pod was even better than we expected with everything we needed."

    Communication with Angie was great from start to finish and as there were no restaurants to eat out in at that time, the Miners arms offered to deliver pizza to us. The bed was extremely comfortable and shower facilities were fine. Everything was spotlessly clean on arrival and she had even provided a lovely bottle of Prosecco to welcome us. After long days out walking, the hot tub was very welcoming and was checked every day. We even managed to see some great sunrises (hence the name). Fantastic views from all sides and even though we did have neighbours, we didn’t hear a thing! We were very lucky with the weather and managed to see some great places nearby. We will definitely be recommending and hopefully returning again.

Our dog loved it too...I think he made friends with the sheep eventually haha!

  • "WOW! The pods at Stiperstones are amazing!"

    The are comfortable, luxurious, with all the amenities you need whether you are self catering or eating out and incredibly clean. The hot tub is super, large enough for 4 people so plenty of room for 2 with the most incredible, unimpeded views of the countryside. Nearby there are some great local pubs and literally on your doorstep 500 acres of countryside, which make for great walks. The extra touches make the break really special and Angie was a great host, very thoughtful and kind. I would wholeheartedly recommend this. Thanks Angie for a great stay!

    Angie was fab before, during and after our stay and provided all of the information we wouldn't have even thought to ask. The pod is set in a beautiful location, easy to get to and lots of lovely places to walk nearby. The pod was clean and very well equipped, we didn't need half of the stuff we brought along with us as it was already provided. Great place to bring your dog and very well secured to stop them escaping. The hot tub was lovely and where we spent most of our stay. We loved it so much we ended up booking an extra night and are already looking at booking another stay! Thank you very much

Sunrise Pods

Enjoying vast views of the beautiful countryside within the Shropshire Hills AONB, you can find this delightful trio 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 hobbit-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.
