Frequently Asked Questions
Are we dog friendly?Unfortunately, we took the decision to not allow dogs in the pod at this current time. We love dogs! Infact, we have our own. But with the close proximity to our working farm and private equestrian yard, and only one pod up and running at this present time, we would prefer not to have pets. We hope you understand.
How many do the pods sleep?In each pod there is a very comfortable double bed, plus a fold our double sofa bed with ample space around. We spent a great deal of time researching to ensure this is as comfortable as possible for both adults and children!
Are we family friendly?Yes! We welcome children of 8 years and older. Theres plenty for children to do both on the site and around the area. Each pod comes with its own smart TV, sound bar for music & Wifi. A great variety of wildlife can be seen down at the pond, as well as horses, sheep, seasonal lambs and foals around our fields. Diggerland, Hall Hill Farm and Wheelbirks Ice cream parlour are all local to us, with Hadrians Wall Visitor Centre's also providing a great day out just a little further afield. Please do keep an eye on your children around the pond areas and remember it is a working farm/equestrian yard so horses, animals and machinery will be moving around the farm.
Do we offer discounts for longer stays?We do offer a discount rate for booking direct with us, plus offers for group bookings or longer stays. Please get in touch via email and we would be delighted to chat with you.
How many pods are available?July 2022 sees the launch of our first pod, Beech, sleeping up to 4 guests. Our second pod is currently built and being prepared for launch in Autumn 2022. A further 2 pods are planned for the site in 2023.
