  • "Perfect location for a relaxing break."

    A well equipped pod with wonderful views, stunning sunsets and lovely woodland walks on the doorstep. Couldn’t ask for anything more.

    Thank you for your lovely review Property Owner

  • "We booked our holiday then received an email confirming the booking only to see that the dates were wrong."

    Contracted Sykes and the agent who dealt with our enquiry said that their system had automatically defaulted to later dates. This was less than ten minutes after receiving the confirmation email. We were told that we could not cancel and no refund would be available. Terrible service and after numerous bookings with Sykes it will definitely be our last. Their system at fault not ours as we were not at fault after their system had in the agents own words "defaulted!" I would have given no stars if it were an option. We eventually stayed for three nights and paid for five. Location was stunning but I'd advise booking direct with the owners as your not paying commission to Sykes who are totally profit focused

    Sorry for your issues with Sykes but glad you enjoyed your holiday with us Property Owner

    The property was immaculately presented, with a few unexpected extras. Great place for a hideaway if that's what's required or a base to explore all the history around that area .Enjoyed the sunsets and waking up to a real sunrise in the valley with all the birdsong and livestock. Thanks again to Andy and Dawn

    I have stayed in pods before but this was his first time. The location of the pod is situated in a beautiful location where you can see for miles! The surrounding area is gorgeous with Shrewsbury town centre not too far away. The actual pod itself was very cosy and was gifted with cookies and Prosecco on arrival! The hosts Dawn and Andy were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. The facilities were great and will definitely be looking to go back. Definitely worth the money and after eventful year it was just what we needed! Thank you Dawn and Andy! X

    You are very welcome! We are so thrilled that you chose Sol Pod to see in the New Year and equally delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your kind review we look forward to welcoming you back very soon Property Owner

  • "The bed wasn't the most comfortable."

    But everything else was perfect. Really enjoyed my stay here!

    We’re glad that you enjoyed your stay and pride ourselves on ensuring our guests are as comfortable as possible. The memory foam mattress has been provided as standard by the Pod manufacturers to try to suit the majority of people although we understand that comfort is very personal. We hope to see you again very soon. Property Owner
