Our Pod is in the centre of Dimmingsdale which is a beautiful area with its woodland lakes, waterfalls and exciting paths and tracks to explore. You can walk through the woods to Alton Towers and to the Pub. You can collect your own eggs on request, and watch our horses and sheep graze. is great for couples, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).

The space
Our Pod and Hot Tub is situated in a secluded spot in our field surrounded by fields and overlooking the woods.
There is plenty of outdoor space to explore, you get a real sense of wild camping its so secluded. At night you can listen to the owls as you sit around your fire pit enjoying your BBQ food You can also enjoy the outdoor kitchen and dining area. You will feel like you have left your busy life behind you.
The Pod is an eco space with a 12v solar powered system providing lighting and 12v USB plug sockets for charging your phone.

In side the Pod you have a comfy double bed with 100% cotton bed linen, a separate toilet and wash hand basin with cold running water. The hot shower is located in a separate adjacent pod where you will find natural pure lakes toiletries provided. There is a sofa bed which is not partitioned from the other bed so only suitable for close friends and family. The log burner is fabulous and not only heats the pod really well but can be used to boil a kettle or cook with the cast iron pot provided. We also have an inside kitchen area with pots, pans, crockery and cutlery and a sink for washing up with cold running water.
Next door to the Pod in a secluded spot is our brand new log fired hot tub, we have installed this for Pod guests private independent use. You can bring your own logs or Our hard wood seasoned Logs for the hot tub are £10 per bag. It’s usually one bag per lighting. Also Outside The Pod you have your veranda with a covered outside kitchen area with gas hob, Charbroil 4 burner infrared gas BBQ and side grill which can Roast a Christmas Turkey. We also provide a large cool box with plenty of ice blocks provided to keep your food ice cold for the length of your stay. The outside dining is a treat with its lovely secluded position and gorgeous woodland views. We also provide a fire pit and logs can be foraged from the woods or bags bought for £8 per bag.
We hope to help you escape from your screens and go back to basics but you can access the 4G network on your phones if needed. Games and Books are provided in the pod.

Guest access
The Pod is situated on our farm where there is sheep, horses, chickens and plenty of space to run around. As long as supervised and safe children or adults are welcome to have a bounce on our trampoline or collect the eggs on request. Walking from the pod is fantastic with its acres of woodland to explore and trails leading your to lakes, cafes and pubs.

Other things to note
Please note the Pod has a plumbed in toilet and sink but the shower is in a separate pod and is shared with The Yurt.

Oakamoor, England, United Kingdom

Dimmingsdale is an area of outstanding beauty and has 100's of acres of forests to explore. We are on the opposite valley to Alton Towers and the walk is spectacular. Alton is 10 mins by car and a beautiful 40 minute walk away where you will find to very good gastro pubs The Alton Bridge and The Royal Oak and 4 other pubs to crawl around sampling the local ales. Please take care because the lanes approaching us are very narrow and bumpy so please drive with care.
