New years resolutions at West Stow Pods

Posted on: January 2nd 2024

New years resolution 2024.

The start of 2024 means only one thing: the age-old tradition of setting resolutions. Year after year, we embark on a journey of self-improvement, only to find ourselves veering off course by February! This time, at West Stow Pods, we have the perfect backdrop to turn those resolutions into reality. Say goodbye to unmet goals and hello to fresh starts amidst the peaceful Suffolk countryside. Below, we have listed 5 New Year’s resolutions and explained why, at West Stow Pods, you will have no problem showing your resolutions who’s boss!

1. Exercise More: Put your best foot forward!

At West Stow Pods, you can start off the year on the right foot—literally! Immerse yourself in the picturesque surroundings with our scenic walks, catering to both beginners and seasoned ramblers. Or, perhaps two wheels are more your style; explore the cycling routes within the King’s Forest or the longer distance Miller’s Trail. Visit High Lodge, just 13 miles from our glamping site, where you can take on a fitness triad with walking, cycling, and even high ropes adventures, all within Thetford Forest. You really are spoiled for choice when it comes to getting active. After all, this resolution is all about “putting your best foot forward”.

2. Travel More: Staycation like never before!

Whilst trips abroad may be tempting, why look beyond your doorstep when Suffolk has so much to offer? (Plus, a staycation also ticks off any resolution to lower your carbon footprint!). Experience the charm of the Suffolk countryside while indulging in the comfort of West Stow Pods. Nestled in a woodland setting near an Anglo-Saxon village, our family-run glamping retreat is just a stone’s throw away from the historic Bury St Edmunds, where there is so much to see and do.

3. Spend Time with Family: Adventures for All Ages!

West Stow Pods was made for family-friendly adventures. If you have committed to spending more time with those you love this year, look no further! With all of our MegaPods sleeping up to four and Pod Hollow featuring 2 large bedrooms, our retreat is tailor-made for family getaways. Once you have all journeyed to the site, the fun doesn’t stop there! Dive into the immersive, educational experience of West Stow Anglo Saxon Village—a 125-acre nature park with activities for everyone, just 4 minutes away from West Stow Pods!

4. Learn Something New: Unearth Suffolk’s Rich History!

The foundations of West Stow Pods are inspired by fantastical stories, and its very roots have influenced tales of Neverland itself! But, there is nothing like the stories of the past to tell you more about the area that West Stow Pods is lucky enough to call home. Expand your horizons by delving into the rich history of Suffolk. Explore Moyse’s Hall Museum in Bury St Edmunds to discover more about the bustling market town or venture to Ickworth Park for an introduction to both upper and lower-class life in Suffolk during times gone by.

5. Reduce Stress: A Tranquil Retreat!

Destress and return to nature, prioritise your wellbeing, and detox from city life. All of our accommodations are situated within woodland copse; they ensure your immersion in the natural beauty of the Suffolk countryside without compromising your home comforts. Our Woodland Lodges have a dining table and chairs, free wi-fi, TV, and a kitchenette equipped with a microwave, kettle, toaster, and fridge. All of this means that armed with a good book, should you wish, you can fully unwind without having to leave the pod at all!

2024 is the year that you bid farewell to resolutions that fade with the seasons and by February are mere anecdotes! At West Stow Pods, make this the year that you prove your goals are not just hopeful resolutions but accomplishments waiting to happen.
