  • "A very comfortable and cosy pod with everything you need."

    The grounds around the pod are beautiful and the viewing decking area with bench was a lovely surprise. Fantasic views to the coast. My dog was free to roam around and he loved all the scents and space. Owner Jo was so nice and came to check everything was OK after I arrived. Location is quiet and rural, but close enough to the A55 so it's easy to get around Wales. 100% recommend a stay here.

  • "Gelert Pod was a very peaceful place to take a break from the hustle and bustle the area was quiet and the dog loved the fact he could explore."

    Kept well maintained with all instruction left how things worked. Maybe the only downside no oven but we did know this and easily worked round it. I would recommend if you are looking for some peace and quiet.

  • "Another great stay at the Panorama Gelert Pod."

    It has everything you could need or want for a relaxing stay. Close enough to explore lots of North Wales if you want days out. Our dog enjoyed every minute, playing fetch up and down the hill, having a good old sniff around and then relaxing in the evening in front of the log burner. We will be again.

    The pod is absolutely stunning and immaculately clean. It's set In the most beautiful grounds with stunning views. Our host Jo was warm and welcoming and had provided us with a few treats upon arrival. The cozy fire was just perfect. The bed was extremely comfortable and myself and my partner had the best nights sleep. The pod has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. There are lawn games and hammocks which were fun and there is a beautiful spot with a bench for you to sit and enjoy the stunning sunsets and views. Our dog enjoyed the freedom to wander around and she didn't want to leave. Nor did we. We will definitely be booking again in the near future. Its the perfect place to relax and unwind.

    We stayed in the Gelert Pod, it was perfect. It has everything you could wish for and much more. Our dog also loved it, lots of freedom to sniff and explore and the best thing was lots of space to play fetch, resulting in one very happy and very tired dog. The pods are situated in an ideal place to explore North Wales.

    Jo and Sion have thought of everything, and we loved the added extras of Alexa and the smart tv channels. The pod has everything you need. We slept brilliantly and the reclining sofa was really comfortable, especially on a wet day with a glass of wine and the fire going! There is plenty to do nearby, with a choice of beaches within easy reach. The stunning views from the field behind the pod are also not to be missed. Thank you Jo & Sion for the lovely break!

  • "Absolutely gorgeous!"

    ! Cozy, immaculate and very comfortable. Pod was equipped with everything we needed for our stay with lovely touches everywhere. The small space was very well thought through through accommodating comfortable bed, extendable sofa, log burner and kitchen area..(the shower cabin could have been slightly bigger, being over 6ft tall, we both struggled a bit but it has not compromised our stay) Outside space was great for our dog to play safely. Great walks nearby and a short drive away. Jo was lovely and accommodating and nothing was a problem, we felt welcomed and well looked after!! Welcome pack on arrival as well as pod being set up with and pre-heated was much appreciated. We have had a great time and will definitely book again! Thank you Anna + Tom & Luna

  • "I have published this review on Google maps as a local guide: Absolutely fantastic place to stay."

    The beautifully decorated pods are clearly a labour of love for the owners Jo and Sion who were also really friendly and helpful during our stay. They have everything you need from the basics like cooking equipment, towels etc to the not so basic like local guide maps, LED candles for romantic evening and nice thoughtful touches like leaving a torch hanging by the door for if you need to go out at night. They are also awesome for the modern traveller like me and my wife with USB ports for phone charging, WiFi, Amazon fire TV and even built in voice assistant (Fantastic for getting your favourite music playing for cooking and relaxing!). The views behind the pods are stunning and worth a wander out to with your morning coffee. The grounds are nice to wake up to and have hammocks which are lovely on a nice day. They are a little intimidating to get to first attempt (a small price to pay for having such a secluded retreat) but my advice is believe Google maps even when you start thinking "this can't be right"! It will get you there in the end.
