Pod Hollow

Coming soon in 2018 to West Stow Pods.



We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the children have walked more in two days than I’ve ever known – due to the wonderful walks nearby. An excellent choice of something different, and great value for money.

Glamping – taken to a whole new level. The best bits of camping and outdoor life with all the comforts of home. Somewhere we will definitely revisit.

We were also named as one of the top places to go Glamping in Cambridgeshire – I’m not sure if they realised that we are in Suffolk!
