10/12/17- Willow Glamping Pod, “ Wonderful Place, magical in the snow, pods are amazing. Thank You so much. Loved the hot tub as well.”  Llandrindod Wells.

10th - 12th November 2017, Will be highly recommending to family and friends, we’ve absolutely loved it, and the pod is incredible!, absolutely wonderful. Thank You so much. Northwick, Cheshire.

3-5 th November 2017, Highly recommend, lovely relaxing time, pods, showers, great, friendly place. Welshpool.



Absolutely loved it, one  of the most relaxing breaks we have ever had, such a beautiful setting, pods the best we have ever stayed in. RO Leicestershire.


What a perfect place to stay, spotlessly clean, lovely welcoming hosts, comfy, well equipped pods, with the added treat of a hot tub with Willow pod. Perfect for couples and families. Cannot wait for our next visit. Tanya


Just had our stay at the pods, absolutely fantastic! Cannot recommend them enough.  The facilities are 5*, the best pods I have ever stayed in,  We will be coming back again.  Sarah


Booked at short notice, and what a find, pods and facilities first class and only a 10 minute drive to the nearest supermarkets.

The venue and surrounding area are so quiet and dog friendly that we did not want to leave.  For dog owners the bonus is that 3 of the pods are sweep/wipe clean, just bring your own bedding.  The free WiFi works fine should you need to stay connected.  We like the place so much we have booke already to return between Christmas and New Year, and I am sure we will be going back in the Summer next year too. Trevor and Fiona..


We recently enjoyed a stay at this lovely site as a group.  We occupied the 4 quaint pods , which were spotless, cosy yet roomy enough for a family. The site was spotless , in a peaceful location with enough space for kiddies, pets and adults to play.  The shower block was a hop and skip away from the pods, very clean and modern, and further cleaned during our stay.  There was a welcome under cover washing up area, with fridge freezer, along with each pod having a kettle, microwave and fridge, with tea, coffee, milk and biscuits, supplied for arrival, a very welcome treat. Angela


A wonderful, relaxing break, with our dog, in a pretty, peaceful location, but with plenty of places to visit nearby.  Already looking foreword to my next visit.  Alison

21/5/17- Nuthatch Cottage

We had a relaxing week away, the cottage was perfect for our stay.  We loved the little extras provided.  Cottage was immaculate, beds comfy and hot tub lovely and warm.  We also saw 3 shooting stars whilerelaxing in the hot tub.  Highly recommend and will definitely return soon.

We had a wonderful stay.  The Cottage exceeded our expectations, and was wonderfully clean, with all the accessories we would ever need. SG

Woodpecker Cottage

Ideal spot to visit with a wheelchair, recommended places to visit with a wheelchair is Talacre Beach, push up to top of hill, turn right, then you can go for 3 miles along a cycle track next to the sea ( very easy), Ellesmere Mere, a trip to Welshpool for a ride on the steam train was also easily done with a wheelchair.


Mr M Ebdon has requested we put this on our website:-

" If you want a nice, peaceful relaxing getaway, Nuthatch Cottage is the place to be, has everything you need and you can bring your extended family with you and your dogs.  The guide left in the cottage is worth reading. Rooms were brilliant, bed was very comfy, hot tub wonderful, just a fantastic place to relax, seriously go and try it you won't be let down. Thank You again and we will see you again very soon."
