Is there a restaurant on site?

No but we have a farm shop on site where you can buy local produce or pick up a locally produced ready meal.

Can we get a food delivery to the pod?

Yes, Tesco, Sainsburys and Asda will deliver. You can also order a meal made by a local cafe to be left in the fridge of your pod for when you arrive.

What do I need to bring?

Everything you need for a wonderful stay is included. We do recommend some stout shoes and a hat - it is Scotland after all!

Is there anything to do?

If you want to venture away from your private hot tub then yes! You can meet our friendly animals including alpacas, goats, sheep, pigs, ponies or wander around the walks on the farm. You could do our 5K treasure trail, or visit the pop up coffee shop on a Saturday morning.

Can I see the stars?

We have wonderful dark skies over the winter months. If the night is clear you will be blown away by the stars!

Is it like camping?

It is like glorious, luxurious camping! Imagine a 5 star hotel room but them you walk straight out into nature.

Who owns the Pods?

We are a family business. Carol and Martin first added self catering to the farm 15 years ago and recently Damian and Elisabeth ( Daughter and Son-in-law) have come on board to help also.
