This delightful little pod is the perfect romantic escape for a couple who love something a bit different. Situated at the end of a long farm lane, it offers complete peace and tranquillity yet is only 11 miles from the vibrant city of Exeter. Sit back in the hot tub and drink in the gorgeous valley views, a glass of champagne in hand, while the BBQ smokes in the background; there’s no need to rush in this laid-back part of Devon.

Inside the pod, you are provided with all home comforts. An open-plan living area makes the most of the space with a comfortable bed and shower room at one end and a kitchen and living/dining area at the other. Here you can sit cosy while gazing out at the country views from inside, and on warmer days, just open the quirky circular doors to create a seamless space with the decked area outside.

If you can tear yourself away from this little retreat, take a drive into Bickleigh, 3 miles from the pod, where you will find a popular mill with boutique shops and local foods. The nearby town of Tiverton (4 miles) is also worth the short journey with boats for hire on the pretty canal and a horse-drawn barge, one of last remaining in the UK. A spectacular sight to see, it offers a unique afternoon out, and one that will stay in your memory for years to come.

We cannot recommend The Holly Pod enough. If you want seclusion, amazing views, tranquility and peace with a little indulgence (the hot tub) then this place is for you. We had the most amazing 5 night stay even though the weather was awful. I hope to be back very soon.

We absolutely loved our stay in Holly Pod. It's a true escape from reality. The pod was cosy, well equipped and completely private. The enclosed garden was great for our 2 dogs. The added bonus of the hot tub was very much enjoyed by us even though the weather was not on our side! We've already booked to return to in the summer!

The Holly Pod is a fantastic little getaway. Very remote, it feels like youre in your own little space with the fields to yourself. I can see why people bring their dogs to the pod as theres a great big field out in front where they can roam freely (Ill bring my dog next time if I come back!).

The views are phenomenal and the property is situated in a secluded position giving an unbroken view of the night sky. As we were on holiday during the second heat wave, the pond at the bottom of the hill surrounded by trees was a godsend for us and the dog. The hot tub is of good quality and there are a couple of good pubs a short drive away.
