  • "We had a lovely time!"

    The owners could not have been kinder! The pod was small but cosy and had everything we needed. The only problem was finding the site! The directions were accurate, but Satnav sent us the wrong way and confused us . Some photos of landmarks on the way from the A55 might have made it easier. But Sion very kindly drove down and rescued us when we phoned him!

  • "Fantastic little pod, in a beautiful location."

    The pod itself is packed with everything you would need for a short stay away. The peaceful location is perfect to switch off and go wondering in the hills, whilst still being close enough to so many of Wales’ towns and attractions. Jo and Sion took great care of us and checked in/ were always available, should we have needed them.

  • "The property is outstanding and exceptionally clean, everything you should want is there."

    It is in easy reach of all attractions, but not within a pub or restaurant range, you will have to drive or get a taxi, the owners have left a manual and there is taxi numbers inside, they do have a table top ironing board and iron in the pod, which is not listed, tea coffee and sugar are left, along with washing up liquid and cleaner, there are toiletries in the bathroom for your use. There is a smart tv with a fire stick as described, but if you are a sky go customer, then take your laptop and a hdmi lead, you can watch your sky on the tv, ideal if you have a few rainy days or just want a lazy tv day. The grounds are well kept and there is a decked area with chairs up on the grassed area, which will give you a lovely sunrise and sunset, the hammocks are such a lovely touch and even for an oldie like myself, I thoroughly enjoyed a 5 min swing. The owners are attentive and on hand for anything you may need, but you are pretty much left alone to enjoy your holiday. Well done Jo and Sion, you have an outstanding place and we will be back.

  • "An absolute pleasure to be able to stay here for a few nights."

    The location is brilliant, 5 minutes to the A55 but it feels like you are miles away from any main road when you arrive at this beautiful secluded spot. The pods are well kept and come equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We took our 2 year old dog and he had plenty of fenced in garden to run around in. Jo was a great host and came down to welcome us after we had settled in. This is an absolute must if you plan to visit North Wales for a few days.

    We switched off our phones and forgot about the outside world, playing games, having a bbq (which was kindly provided), sitting on the decking & enjoying the sunshine with some drinks and lazing in the hammocks. We went to Talacre beach which is around a 20 minute drive, we also visited The New Inn pub for lunch which has a lovely outdoor seating area with heated pods and across the road is a beautiful waterfall you can take a lovely stroll around there. Would highly recommend both. There are plenty of local walks & our little dog loved every second of his holiday too. Thankyou for having us Jo, we will be recommending to everybody.

    We have just had a fantastic week. The little pod is so cosy and you have everything you need and to a high spec too. The bed is so comfortable! I slept the best I have in ages and that’s coming from somebody waiting for a hip replacement and usually struggles to get comfortable. If you are looking for total relaxation then this is the place to go. Not that we did need anything as we have everything we could possibly need but the owners are nearby and more than happy to help.

  • "A truly ideal location for a relaxing break."

    The Idris Pod was a little bit of luxury with panoramic views of the area and it was well-equipped, including those little extra touches to make things special. I booked this as a surprise for my husband's birthday and we had not stayed in this type of accommodation before, so I was a little nervous about what we would find. However, the whole experience was wonderful and we both loved it! The owners were very helpful and non-intrusive, but were on hand if needed. The pod had everything needed for us to enjoy our 4-night break. A cosy real fire (with plentiful supply of logs), a comfortable bed, reclining sofa to relax and watch a movie or two on the Amazon firestick, or listen to some music on the Amazon Echo. Books galore to cater for every genre and board games/playing cards too. A spotless bathroom with shower and toiletries and a well-equipped kitchen area. Easy access to the M55 from the Pod, which enabled us to travel into the Snowdonia National Park, to the coast and to Anglesey. The scenery was spectacular. We will definitely be re-visiting this wonderful accommodation in the springtime/summer to take advantage of the gardens, walks and hammocks! Thanks to Jo for the welcome pack on arrival too - very thoughtful. A definite 10/10.
