Don't take our word for it, see what our guests say about Podpads

  • “I don't like camping but equally I don't like staying off site. If we go again I would most definitely book again”

  • “I was very impressed that out bell tent was so dry,!”

  • “Free tea and coffee was a life saver the morning after the night before!!”

  • “This was our 4th year with pod pads, and we will stay with you for next year definitely.!”

  • “Extra comfort and loved not having to pitch a tent on my own as a lone parent.!”

  • “My daughter stayed in a Podpad at the Isle of Wight, and as a seasoned festival goer, said she wouldn't ever camp again. I thought that was a good recommendation and thought we'd give it a try. Now, we feel the same!”
