We had a fabulous mid-week stay at this gorgeous Pod retreat deep in the South Devon countryside. Upon arrival we were shown all the amenities of the Pod, including instructions to light the wood fired hot tub. The Sauna was fantastic. We had a hamper provided which had the essentials for a nice cooked breakfast. The pub is a few meters away and haRead mores a varied menu, the food we ate was cooked well and the portions were plentiful, most importantly the meal was very tasty. We would return. Hide

Quiet location with only two pods on the site. Lots of places to visit nearby and dog friendly. Great choice of meals at the pub with friendly staff. We enjoyed getting away from it all for a week.

Loved it here! Not too far from local amenities yet really private and idyllic. Lovely river at the bottom of site. Lovely walks nearby, easy to reach the beach approx 25 minutes by car. Perfect for our dog as enclosed. Super clean, didnt see any dirt. Felt like a home away from home.
