Barley Hill Pod is gorgeously located in the serene Somerset countryside and is ideally suited for a romantic couples' getaway. Gloriously positioned in its own private field, the site is surrounded by magnificent oak trees with fairy-tale views across barley fields. The crisp golden landscape invokes similarities to the famous Shawshank Redemption hay-field with its burgeoning oaks and glistening golden barley. Indulge in the glorious hot-tub outside with the river trickling past and a pond filled with beautiful Call Ducks enclosed opposite; pure glamping bliss.

The site is a haven for a variety of wild birds, with various bird tables and feeders positioned around the site guests can expect to see anything from Nuthatches and Woodpeckers to elusive Kingfishers. The pod is incredibly private with no signs of civilisation in sight except for the occasional tractor trundling along the quiet country roads.

The pod itself is deceptively spacious and equipped with everything you need for a lovely romantic getaway. With a super comfy corner sofa to lounge around in the evenings, the pod has a full range of cooking facilities including oven, hob, fridge, and even a flat-screen TV. The super snug space is brilliantly insulated and benefits from underfloor heating plus additional electrical heaters if required. What's more, a lovely en-suite bathroom with WC, basin and hot shower makes the pod a fully equipped mini home.

Barley Hill is only 30 minutes' drive to Dorset's' spectacular Jurassic Coast to the south, while the beautiful Somerset Coast to the north is also easily accessible from the site. In addition, the magnificent Blackdown Hills are a little more than 10 minutes away with their distinguished sharp valleys and an array of native wildlife. A visit to this Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a must-do.

** Please Note ** During the winter months, the hot-tub may need at least 1 days notice to heat up. Please ring 01348 830 922 if you would like to double-check **
