  • "Had a wonderful stay!"

    Beautifully managed grounds, helpful welcome pack. All the utensils provided if you wanted to cook. Very relaxing stay. To improve I would get a better heater inside the cabin as even with it being sunny during the day it did get cold at night but if you put the heater on a few hours before bed it was warm when you first got in. It would also be useful to have a secure storage box at the side of the cabin for all our things. I would definitely come back but would stay in a larger pod as the cabin itself was a bit too small especially with bringing a dog. Have already recommended to a lot of friends!

  • "We absolutely loved our stay, the only issue we both found was the pod was far to small and the single bed was to small for a 6ft guest."

    Apart from that we enjoyed and will try one of your larger pods next time.

  • "Whilst the pod itself was clean I felt that the listing was slightly misleading as it seemed much smaller than advertised on the website and was far too cramped for two people and a dog."

    The outdoor food prep area was ok but due to the cooler Welsh weather it gets too cold to eat outside in the autumn so I don’t know how people are likely to deal with this in the winter time. I feel a patio heater would be a benefit to these properties. It also seems odd that you have to pay a supplement for bringing an animal when these properties are advertised as dog-friendly and have clearly raised their prices for covid related reasons.

  • "Fantastic stay at the Orchard Pod, weather was great and the surrounding areas was simply stunning."

    The wood fire hot tub was an added bonus, it did take an hour or so the heat up but that worked out perfectly for me to have a glass of wine or two. I would definitely stay here again and have no hesitation recommending this too others. The only downside was i had to leave!! Will definitely be visiting again.

    The hot tub was not working properly the pump had gone so no bubbles we were informed on arrival wich made us upset and angry cos the main thing we wanted was the hot tub and to pay £750 and it not working properly was a major let down

  • "Had such a lovely couple of nights."

    Booked for a chilled girls catch up which didn’t disappoint. Absolutely loved the setting, so peaceful and private. Loved just taking time out sitting round the fire pit with a blanket and glass of vino. Perfect. Hot tub was wonderful. Woodfired tubs do take a bit of work, but it’s all part of the experience. I loved the whole process of keeping the fire going and it was definitely worth it. Thanks for a lovely couple of day and will highly recommend

  • "Wonderful little pod right in the middle of nature and away from bustling city life."

    Everything was really comfortable from the beds to the fire pit chairs provided. The outdoor cooking area was perfectly equipped and everything very easy to use. Was wonderful to cook outside especially on a nice day. The staff were extremely helpful with following up any queries I had. The hot tub and fire pit were amazing, just one small problem we were not provided with a lot of fire lighters to get fires started but that’s the only issue. We had a lovely time, thank you. :)

  • "Accommodation was great, perfectly finished and the facilities were great."

    One recommendation would be to install a patio heater onto the kitchen area for when it’s a bit cold, so you can still comfortably sit outside but doesn’t warrant putting anything less than perfect.
