Belonging to the Brown Horse Inn, the 'Woodland Pods' are a unique and delightful place to stay. Sympathetically designed and furnished in a contemporary style to offer a little bit of tranquillity in a stunning location. Each pod is individually styled and decorated to provide a clean and contemporary holiday experience with all your creature comforts. With couples in mind, the pods are cosy and snug in the evening and bright and calming during the day.

On arrival to the Brown Horse Inn head to your designated parking area and follow the path that leads up to the Woodland Pods. Ghyll Head is the first on your left. Enter the pod from your private outside terrace through large patio doors to a beautiful room with a comfy King size bed, kitchenette area with a table and chairs and a spacious and modern ensuite shower room with bath robes.

Relaxing retreat in a good location. Pod was cosy, well equipped including items for dogs and decorated to an excellent standard. The Brown Horse Inn serves excellent food and allows dogs in the bar area. We throughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend booking.
