Sleeping is on fold out foam chair/beds on the carpeted floor.  Parking is close to your Pod and your own private and exclusive toilet and shower facilities are approx 200mtrs from your door.  Sorry but dogs aren't accepted in our Ridge Pods.

What's included with the wood-fired hot tubs:

Your own exclusive use - hot tubs are right outside your accommodation.

Fresh fill of the hot tub before you arrive. The hot tubs are cleaned and sanitised between each guest stay prior to filling.

Firewood/fuel, firelighters & matches - enough for 2-3 hours bathing time per night.

Depending on the time of year, the water takes 2 - 2.5 hours to heat up, so simply light the firebox before your BBQ and it will be ready for an evening's relaxation.

The latest time we undertake hot tub inductions is 8pm. If you arrive after that, you won't be able to use your hot tub until the following day.

We also offer a hot tub prelighting service, so that the water is warm for when you arrived, idea if you aren't arriving until after tea time. The minimum age for the hot tub is 5 years old; under-14s must be supervised by an adult. Only plastic drinking glasses are to be used when bathing, so please bring some along. A maximum of 4 people are allowed per tub or congregating around the  pods.  During freezing conditions, the hot tubs may not be available - this is rare, but if does occur we'll refund you your hot tub fee.

Sorry, but we don't accept dogs in the Ridge Pods.
