  • "We really enjoyed our stay, the pod was beautiful and had everything we needed, the setting was idyllic and the perfect base for lots of great days out with the dogs."

    Hot tub was a wonderful thing to enjoy in the evenings after days of long walks to sooth our aching muscles. In short we loved it and would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a lovely peaceful holiday!

  • "Absolutely fabulous accommodation, can't wait stay again."

    Beautiful views, equipped with everything you would need, the only thing I would say is there are limited plug sockets, so if you are bringing a few devices you may want to bring an extension lead.

  • "Overall was a beautiful stay, will definitely be returning at some point."

    Views in the morning were amazing. The pod itself is a great design with all your needed necessities. If I was forced to find one negative it would only be that the kitchen area at the rear has no cover so it lets cold in so could do with that being closed off or some Form of heating fitted in the kitchen area for spring breaks

  • "Lovely setting of where it is and beautiful looking pod, but this has to be the dirtiest place we’ve ever stayed in, dust in every crevice, floors we’re dirty, pillows had some sort of mould on (we have pictures too) the place was freezing it had one little storage heater on the wall, there was a constant draft coming in from the doors and the back bathroom window."

    The bed was ridiculously uncomfortable, it just felt so cheap, not luxury as stated in the ad. for the money we paid we are so disappointed. Won’t be coming back or recommending this to anyone unfortunately. It was that shoddy we left after just one night.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay, it was so lovely and peaceful."

    Will definitely be looking to book here again on our next get away. Only thing I would like to say, is drinking the tap water straight isn't a good idea, my tounge was fuzzy for a while after it. Besides that, great place to stay, thank you!!

  • "We had an amazing weekend, the hot-tub was the star of the weekend helping to ease those achy muscles after our mountain hike."

    The only thing I would say which would make the pod an even better experience is to cover up those open areas in the kitchen/diner area where the woodland pod is attached to the kitchen. The wind howled through those large openings so sitting at the breakfast bar to enjoy the impressive views was pretty cold to say the least.

  • "This place is perfect."

    So peaceful and relaxing. Kitchen is stocked with anything you'd need,plenty towels and blankets provided, clean comfy bedding. Hot tub is wood fired so does take a good few hours to heat up but once it has it retains heat quite well, does use a good bit of wood to get to temperature though. Fire pit is perfect for cosy nights outside. The single track road leading up is quite bumpy but everything is so worth it once you're there. Will definitely be booking again.

  • "The overall holiday was brilliant, beautiful views and the weather was perfect."

    The only let down is that the hot tub took over 24 hours to get to a temperature which you were actually able to sit in, this meant therefore that we only got to use the hot tub on the final night for around an hour and half which was a massive shame as the reason we picked to stay at this lodge was due to the hot tub facilities.

    Exactly what we wanted relatively isolated with only two other pods on the site which were far enough away to be unobtrusive, stunning views of a gorgeous area ,not many nicer places to sit with a glass of wine

  • "Such a relaxing week away at the Woodland Pod."

    Everything was amazing and the pod was perfectly thought out and the bed was very comfortable. Being so far from the main road made it so peaceful and the views were superb. Make sure to take firelighters with you to help start the fire pit or hot tub. Would definitely recommend and a perfect base for North Wales.

  • "Lovely glamping pod and kitchen area."

    Wonderful location. Very comfortable and well equiped. The wood fired hot tub was really nice, although we did over-heat it on the first night while we got used to the wood-burner. We were more careful after that and used less wood, though you can still expect to get thru quite a lot, especially if you are using the fire pit as well. The hot tub retains quite a lot of heat from one evening to the next so it doesn't take too long to heat up except on the first night. The covered kitchen area is very good, especially if you are unlucky with the weather - our's was quite mixed but you always have somewhere warm(ish) and dry to sit. There is plently of parking space and you are well away from the other glamping pods, so no issues with noise. The views across the valley are amazing. Just what we needed. Very highly recommended.

  • "We had an amazing time at the Woodland Pod."

    On arrival we started up the hot tub fire. The pod was very clean and tidy and had a good selection of kitchen utensils etc. The shower was great, and beds very comfy. The nights were so cozy, the location is very secluded and so quiet and peaceful. the view from the pod is immense. So many nice places to visit nearby, I would recommend a drive to Llanberis via Llanberis pass, the sights are so beautiful. Thankyou to The Hidden Meadow x

    It was relaxing, peaceful and the views at night were as incredible as during the day(clear skies). The hottub can be challenging, we got ours too hot for a few hours :) but we all enjoyed a relaxing time and a total disconnection with every day life.

  • "This little woodland pod is AMAZING."

    Even though you can see the other pods each one has its own space and it feels nice and secluded. The pictures do not do the pod justice especially on how spacious the pod actually is. The kitchen is behind sliding patio doors but the back is open to the elements so it's not as warm in that section as you might expect but the facilities are great. Oven, hob, microwave, fridge and sink. The bin had a bin bag in and they provide a miniature washing up liquid, second bin bag and washing up cloths too as well as tea towels. Bedroom/lounge is lovely and warm, the beds are very comfortable and the duvets were nice and thick. It is so quiet and peaceful, bar the odd pheasant squark and so we slept like a logs. The hot tub is clean and spacious. I didn't think we would get the hot tub to heat up enough given the other review, however we lit it as soon as we arrived at 5pm and by 930pm it was too hot to get into! So providing you keep on top of the fire, getting into your hot tub on the first night is definitely achievable, just be careful to not over heat it pile we did. Over a two night stay we went through 5.5 bags of logs and 2 bags of kindling which was used for the hot tub and the fire pitt. We had brought logs with us but ran out after using the free bag that comes with the price of the cabin. So the next day we went to Corwen and found a DIY shop to buy some more. We paid £13 for 3 bags of logs and a bag of kindling so this is cheaper than buying more from the cabin. Beautiful setting and lots of walks. Doggy wash on site is a huge plus too. My puppy didn't want to leave he loved it so much, as did we. Will definitely be returning.

  • "We thought on arrival the hot tub would be burning already so it was ready to get in as you can only check in from 4pm it took a few hours for the hot tub to warm up and we used 2 bags of logs and it wasnt hot enough when we got in so we had to get out the first night."

    And we were only left with one toilet roll wich we though there might of been more in the bathroom so resulted in us travelling to find a shop. Other than that we enjoyed out stay.
