The Owner Says
Our two pods each have an outside decked seating area and a communal outside undercover seating area, communal brick built firepit, 2 hot shower rooms, flushing loo and composting loo. We also have a laundry room for longer stays. Each pod has has electricity and heating, plus a cooking station containing gas stove and BBQ, crockery, cutlery, pans, BBQ tools, tea, coffee, sugar, milk, and bottled water (although all water onsite is drinking water). All bedding and towels are included.
From April to August each pod has sunbeds and hammocks, available if the weather.
Guests have full access to the 10 acre woodland where they can forage for wood and kindling. We also have deer, foxes, the occasional badger and resident owls which you can hear most nights. Bats also roost in the trees above the site and you can feel and see them flying around in the evening. Ducks and chickens also roam freely. We also have a large feral cat colony!
Local attractions include Bucklebury Farm Park, Finkley Down Farm, 4 Kingdoms Farm Park, Beacon Hill, Highclere Castle (aka Downton Abbey), Watership Down, and the market towns of Hereford and Newbury. The local village market on the last Saturday of every month is very good.
You may also like to visit The Living Rainforest, The Watermill Theatre, Snelsmore Common, Newbury Racecourse, West Berks Museum and the Bombay Sapphire distillery which hosts tours in its awesome old premises.
There are three lovely local pubs within walking distance – The Rampant Cat, The Furze Bush Inn and The Highclere Red House. There are also many beautiful walks. There is also a very old flint church and a park. We are only 40 mins from London and 40 mins from the seaside.
We are open all year and I am most always on site to help we charge from £50 to £70 per pod per night from Nov to Feb, £60 to £80 march to June and Sep to Oct and from £70 to £99 per pod per night from Jul to Aug. During the winter period guests are free to stay as they please but during the summer period we ask for a minimum stay of 2 days on the weekend, 3 days on a bank holiday. We also charge a premium of £99 per pod on valentines day, or valentines day weekend, mothers day, newyears eve and bank holidays which fall in the winter period.
