  • "Was an absolutely lovely stay, Elen was very attentive and informative."

    The pod was crystal clean and came with everything we needed for the week. The BBQ and hot tub were amazing and we struggled to leave the pod even to have a walk around. Honestly the best break we've had in a while including going abroad. Romantic, secluded, and quiet. Cannot recommend enough!!

    Amazing location, not far from the local town. Welcome pack was a nice touch had a lot of information in, with some nice sweet treats. Hot tub was really nice, being able to chill and sit and watch the sun set. The pod itself was luxurious, very clean and tidy when we arrived and the decor matched the area. I extremally enjoyed my stay here, would defiantly stay again.

    Excellent communication from owner. We really enjoyed using the hot tub despite being unlucky with the weather. The complimentary snacks and processco was a lovely touch. Just beautiful all round. We found a fantastic restaurant in Ruthin called small plates. We'd love to return! Thank you

    The attention to detail was great, with the local treats and the bottle of Prosecco down to the booklet with recommendations on things to do, places to see, restaurants to visit. Have recommended this to friends since our visit and hope you get some business from it, we really enjoyed our stay.

    The pod is situated in the loveliest of settings with the most amazing views surrounded by the sound of nature. Amazing hosts, lovely welcome gift on arrival which was unexpected and the added bonus of a bbq. We loved this so much we have already booked again for later in the year. Looking forward to it already! Sarah & Tristan

  • "I highly recommend the stay at the pods."

    It was a perfect weekend getaway and so relaxing. As we arrived we were amazed by the view from the pod. There was a welcome pack on the table which consisted of Prosecco, and snacky bits which were a lovely touch. The pod was squeaky clean and the hot tub was already set up when we arrived. By the door of the pods is a box which contains pillows and blankets for when it gets colder at night and you still want to sit out on chairs and table. It’s a short drive into the town of Ruthin and is a great location! We will be returning in the future to these pods!

    Facilities and lodge were faultless, amazing view, lovely welcome basket and host was incredibly friendly and helpful throughout the stay. Cannot recommend enough and looking forward to a return visit at some point in the future! Thank you

  • "What a perfect stay!"

    It was everything we could have wanted and more. The welcome package was a lovely touch (prosecco, chocolates and waffles) and there was everything you needed for a fabulous time away. The pod was extremely clean and the views were devine. The bed was really comfy and the pod was just the right temperature. The only thing I’d suggest is having outdoor towels (although there was robes) or bring your own towel for the hot tub as we ended up using the bathroom towels to dry ourselves.
