Magical Memories
Wow what an awesome place to stay.
The setting is so tranquil and so beautiful. The pods are so comfortable and the facilities are excellent. The bathroom and toilet are 5 star quality. The surrounding countryside is outstanding. Highly recommended place to stay if you are looking for tranquility and a slow paced holiday.
We will return to this magical setting again and again.
Thank you for such an awesome holiday.

Isolated retreat
What a fantastic place! Very well maintained and to a very high standard.
Fantastic communication from the outset.
Amazing storm during the first night and only too glad not to have been in a canvas tent 🙂
Loved watching the owls for the nestcams in the well positioned TVs

Glamping with Luxury Wet Room
Fantastic rural setting. Very helpful friendly owner. Excellent bedding and cooking packs available to hire with everything you could need if you’re not experienced campers like us. Great location with country walks and beaches just over the border in Cornwall to visit. Loved watching the owletts on web cams and seeing the adults flying in and out at night feeding them. Would thoroughly recommend.

Wonderful quarry pods
The four of us stayed at the quarry pods the end of July it rained for most of our stay but we could not fault the accommodation. The pods were of high quality and the bathrooms were of a very high standard, I was kept in contact from booking which was simple and through my stay without seeing anybody! Fantastic stay couldn’t recommend it more maybe next time we will have better weather Thanks

The perfect place to unwind
What can I say? Too much, probably! Having just returned from a week’s stay at Quarry Pods we are missing it already!
It really was the most amazing place – a little peace of heaven tucked away in the beautiful Devon countryside.
The pod – Our family – two adults, teenage daughter and 8-year-old son plus our Labrador stayed in The Hive – one of the 4 people pods. There was plenty of room for all of us plus bags etc and we kept all our cooking essentials plus chairs etc on the neat decking area outside. The pod was warm and cosy and quiet and it was lovely not having to put up a tent after a six hour journey. The huge cool box was also a big plus.

The bathroom/washing up facilities were fantastic. We’ve never had a private bathroom while camping so this added a luxury feel. It was spotless with a lovely hot shower and was great to be able to keep all your towels and toiletries in.

Communal areas – a lot of thought has been put into the whole site – picnic tables in several areas, a fire pit and a rainy day room and best of all it was all very secure for our dog.

Lots of other plus points included a fabulous secure nature reserve just a short walk up the road where our dog enjoyed some great walks and Wi-Fi (a must for our daughter!)

The resident barn owls and owl cam were also lovely to watch, along with the starry skies.

I really could go on about how wonderful Quarry Pods are.

They are well located for some lovely towns and villages and beaches – our favourites were Widemouth Bay and Bude. We also appreciated the very in depth and handy welcome book in the lodge giving recommendations for places to visit and eat etc.

The negatives – none! We couldn’t find a single fault with our stay. The set up was absolutely spot on.

All in all, would we return? Most definitely!

Fantastic escape from the rat race!
A stunning site in the middle of the countryside and a peaceful retreat. My best friend and I usually grab a few night camping thus time of year ,but thought on this occasion we would try something different…..we weren’t disapointed!

Weekend break
Had a fantastic time at the Quarry pods, very peaceful and remote setting just a short drive from the seaside town of Bude (a must visit) The pods are the ideal size and the private bathrooms for each pod are a great idea! Thank You for a great weekend !!!

Stayed – August 2017 Scott M

Fantastic

Relaxing Break – In Camping Pods
Having just come back from a weekend break and stayed in this wonderful gem! I’m so glad I found this place. Peaceful, relaxing and beautiful! The pods and private shower room were clean and were made to a high standard. I would absolutely recommend coming here if you want to unwind and enjoy nature. Thank you for a wonderful stay I would definitely come back.

Stayed: August 2018 Travelled with family

What a gem!
Stayed at this place for a few days. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The pods were just right for us and the dog. The bbq place was handy. Quite near to Bude if one decides to go for a surf. Fantastic place. Great walks. You can cycle if you want. The bathrooms are huge! (each pod has a designated bathroom/toilet) We are happy to stay there again definitely.

Podtastic
Had an absolutely fantastic stay over 4 nights, myself and 3 kids 13, 8, and 7. The Pod was a great place to stay, it was warm and very comfortable. We had the best family time, as it quickly became our own little den, with all the mod cons that you really need and still felt like we were close to nature. It was definately camping at its best, the setting is idyllic and the rest of the facilties are first class. I would thoroughly recommend a stay in the Quarry Pods to anyone, (although part of me would like to keep it a best kept secret) and hope that it becomes a great success for Paul and Kirstie. We will be back for another stay very soon.

The Best Pods and Facilities
28-29th August 2012 This was our second visit to camping pods (the first was in the Lake District. This was by far the better experience as the facilities were of a really high standard. We love the fact that we had our own bathroom -could keep all of our bathroom stuff in there, instead of in the pod. The information file was very useful too. Loved the BBQ facility – although didn’t use it – it was great to have the option. The site is clean and tidy and wellmaintained, an absolute delight!! Thank you for a Fab visit, Kate, Pete and Will Croft. The Crofts

Beautiful Glamping Pods

Fantastic Break in Camping Pods
We were one of the first people to stay in the PODS back in July! Had a lovely weekend and the sunshine was beautiful! The facilities were brilliant! Having your own bathroom is a real plus! Quiet quaint we will be returning and recommending to friends! the price was brilliant for the quality! Dorcas Phillips Daniel Ridgeway

Great Winter Camping in Devon: We just wanted to say thank you
We just wanted to say thank you for a great winter camping weekend away in ‘The Nest’. We had such a great time, and loved the whole concept of the Quarry Pods. We will definitely be back…hopefully with the warmer weather!

Thank you for your help with the bedding issues as well, the 2nd mattress was great!!! Ali & Jamie

Camping Pods in Cornwall
The environment here is very nice and calm.I was very happy to see where we were staying. Thank You. We feel so lucky to have booked the pod only an evening before arriving!! we were so pleasantly surprised. This is our first podding expedition, you have “set the bar high”. having the seperate washroom mad a huge difference,what a brilliant facility. We would no doubt recommend you to friends and even come back ourselves. We wish you good luck in the future.

Beautiful Setting, Quiet Peaceful Retreat – Devon Camping with a Difference !!
Myself, husband and 2 boys aged 16 & 11 stayed for 2 nights on the 6th August, and really enjoyed ourselves in the wonderful setting. The pods were lovely and clean and warm, and oh the joy of camping and having your own bathroom and shower was an absolute winner. We were very impressed with everything and will definitely be having another short break soon. Mr & Mrs Hooper

Luxury Camping in a Beautiful Devon Farm Setting!
We have just returned from the most amazing weekend at Dunsdon farm! being November it was freezing outside but the pod was warm and cosy with a heater set up for us. The bathroom facilities are a really high standard and it is such a luxury to have a private bathroom! We didn’t see a soul for the whole 3 days and it was such a peaceful setting!! Would definitely return! would be a great place to go in a big group! The 2 berth pod was plenty big enough for the 2 of us and all our bags! Charlotte B - Plymouth

Camping in Devon But Not As You Might Expect My wife & my 2 girls gave just returned from a three night stay at Dunsdon Farm and we all thought it was fab and had we had a top time, we stayed in the basic pod (the sett) and found it comfortable & warm even though it was -3 outside on our first night.. In fact we had to turn the heater down during the 1st night…there are other pods to choose from but the Sett was ideal for us. It comes with lights, plug sockets a heater and a cool box. Outside there is a neat BBQ area (yes we actually used it although it was freezing) and you also get your own mint shower room…this was a nice surprise, a spacious wet room with a power shower….the surrounding area is stunning and only a short drive to Bude and nearby Port Issac (30 mins drive)Widemouth Bay (20 mins)everywhere has lots & lots to do and lovely people. Anyway very Highly recommended and we will 100% be returning ……. Gary & Sarah Harrison

What a wonderful place!!! – Glamping on Beautiful Devon Farm
I found this place on a random search on the internet and thought to myself looks fab and a great price. I was not disappointed. We were one of the first people to stay in the amazing pods, which were warm, cozy and comfortable (essential as I was 6 months pregnant and had a1.5 yr old in tow) the facilities were spot on and your own lockable bathroom was a clever touch. Not only a beautiful location (the farm itself is gorgeous) and friendly owners, with hundreds of great places to visit on your doorstep what more do you want??! I can not recommend Dunsdon Farm highly enough – the only downside to sharing this information is that everyone else will want to stay there! : ) Claire Smith - Edenbridge

Podtastic – Glamping Near the North Devon Coast Had the most fantastic stay at the quarry pods myself and three children felt right at home in our Pod with all the fun of camping but not having to worry about cold and wet tents all the facilities were first class and the setting is truly idyllic

As much as would like to keep the Quarry Pods our own best kept secret holiday get away it would not be fair, and can only thoroughly recommend it to all, I just hope we can get in again next year. Laurie Beck

Great Holiday in the Quarry Pods – Luxury Camping in North Cornwall
Stayed in the Quarry Pods for first time with my two kids. Pods a good size, facilities including BBQ and shower room etc really great. Owners could not have been more helpful. Will definately return for another stay S Pike - St Albans

Excellent Camping in Beautiful North Devon
I visited last year after doing a bit of random research on the internet and stumbling upon these pods. It is set on a very sleepy little lane with rolling fields behind the campsite. The pods themselves are awesome, very comfy and not too hot in the night time either! The communal area is lovely as well, plenty of places to eat and sit around etc, as well as the BBQ area which is great for cooking burgers etc. The toilet facilities were excellent with each pod having their own toilet/shower in a separate outhouse, which were very clean and tidy. The site is in a great location with the seaside town of Bude being about a 20 min drive away. All in all had a great time! EJLC - Andover

Wonderful Break – On Unique Devon Campsite
We (my partner, my two children and i), booked a two night stay in one of the quarry pods last summer. We were lucky enough to have had excellent weather, believe it or not!
The pod itself was great and it felt like a bit of a luxury having the cooking pack, after booking. It was the kids first ‘camping’ trip, they were just three. They are now coming up to four and they still talk fondly of our stay.
It gave the kids an introduction to the beautiful simplicity of camping and gave us the opportunity to offer them the experience without having to deal with tents and loads of equipment. The individual/personal bathrooms are a great facility; again making the usual ‘camping’ experience easier.
A lovely, peaceful get away. Hope to book a couple of nights again this year. Have and will recommend to other like minded families. Thanks. Alison A - Exeter

Like camping – but warm and dry!! – Glamping Near Bude
Spent a couple of nights here with my 6yr old daughter. Excellent facilities for everything including heater in the pod. You feel you are being adventurous but its warm and dry and feels safe and enclosed. Cooked on the BBQ and sat in the porch and had a thoroughly memorable and enjoyable stay. Weather wasn’t great but there is some stuff to do locally even if this isn’t an area greatly served by attractions for kids. We went to ‘Splash’ in Bude (pool, wave machine, slide – check times), also has bowling, pool, table football etc. next door to Splash.

Dingles fairground museum was a bizarre yet utterly memorable trip as well. If weather ok Bude is an excellent beach and will keep kids happy all day. Rob - Devon

Great Holiday in the Quarry Pods – Luxury Camping in North Cornwall

We stayed at the Quarry Pods last July and enjoyed every moment of it. The pods were cozy and comfortable and the site very well presented with brilliant facilities. Surrounded by glorious countryside definately ideal for cyclists and walkers. Polly H

Wonderful! – Luxury Camping in Devon
My son, daughter and I had a lovely time staying here. It was particularly nice to have our own 5 star wet room! Paul and his wife are lovely hosts – there if you need them but not intrusive. The pods were great – spotlessly clean and plenty of room inside.
Highly recommended !! Rachel W - Truro

Beautiful Devon Camping Pods
We stayed at the Quarry pods last Summer for a couple of days and really enjoyed our experience. The pods were clean, warm and tidy settled in a cool glade area which was lovely for our little girl to explore.
The facilities were immaculate. We did have an issue with the heater in our bathroom which wasn’t able to be fixed during our stay which was a shame as it was a little cold during the evenings.
Would definitely stay again 🙂
Make sure you have a car to travel around as quite far from attractions and villages. Jenny V - Birmingham

Quarry Pods – Glamping in Cornwall
We stayed here in October half term for several nights – during most of that time we were the only occupants so it was very quiet and we were able to do as we pleased! The pods are in a lovely setting and we really liked the individual shower rooms which came with your own key! The pods were cosy and warm at night and the large pod was just the right size for the 3 of us (2 adults and one child). There is also a communal barbeque and seating/picnic area. Just like camping but more suitable for Winter months than a tent due to electric lights, a plug socket and heater. Good access to Bude which is great for lovely beaches/surfing. Highly recommended. Lydia - Oxford

A Great Glamping Experience Near the Cornish Coast
We went in July 2012 having never glamped before! We were amazed by the facilities, the personal Wc and shower room, the BBQ area and the pod itself. We had a great time and would highly recommend it. Lucy Sinclair

Fantastic Glamping Holiday in Devon
What an amazing place! The quarry pods are great for the outdoor feel but very comfortable and spacious. The private shower rooms were better than many hotels and very clean.
The washing up area was well equipped with BBQ tools available as well as washing lines.
The owners were very friendly as was Toffee the cat!
Was a lovely setting to sit and watch the barn owls coming out of the nest in the barn at dusk.
Would highly recommend for a great place to relax and unwind, or to spend time with family and friends.
Smaller pods available for couples or larger ones for families. Claire D, Folkestone

Will never put a tent up again!
We had such a lovely bank holiday weekend staying in your pod! The facilities were spotless and warm! The little ones had so much fun. Thank you for such a lovely stay!! I would defintely recommend this and will be back next year for certain! Anyone want a 5 man tent going cheap? Abi Tanguy

Beautiful and Peaceful Setting for Pods

Civilised Camping
Stayed for 2 nights following my daughters request to ‘go camping’. I had assured myself I would never go camping again – cold, wet, toilet blocks etc, so i booked this. Excellent. Warm, dry and top notch facilities. Not proper camping I suppose – but all the better for it!Shall definately stay again. The Suffields

A Very Lovely Setting For Very Cosy Pods
????Very lovely setting and pods very cosy and comfrotable. Was very peaceful until we arrrived! We will be back, had a great stay, private bathroom a big bonus. Good luck with your venture, I’m sure it will be a big success!! Charlie, Jill and Lyndsay Wilkinson The Wilkinsons

Wiltshire: Camping Pods With Exceptional Faciilities
05/08/12 What a delightful part of the world! A most enjoyable stay, with exceptional facilities. You really have given the world of UK camping something to think about! Richard & Alison Kingston (Wiltshire) Richard and Alison Kingston

Camping Pods
August 5th – 8th 2012 This was our 5th time staying in a pod, and it was by far the best yet!! The area and amenitieshave been well thought out, making a comfortable and peaceful environment. Most campsites you just get a pod and a “bog” standard toilet – what is provided here is more like hotel standard! We will certainly be coming back. Maybe the sun will shine ? Thank you for making our Devon holiday so enjoyable. Fay & Tom (Leeds) Fay and Tom - Leeds

Definately Luxury Camping
Fantastic place, this is definately “Luxury Camping”. Facilities are first class, with own private bathroom. Pods are excellent, spacious and warm. All the fun and adventure of camping without the leaking tent!! Setting is “spot on”, nice and quiet,justa as we like it, rather than noisy campsites. Also close enough to beaches etc.
Thanks

Camping Pods With All Mod-Cons
Thank you for a wonderful few days in the Quarry Pods. “The Sett” was a lovely, comfortable and fun place to come back to after a busy and exciting day out ! It was also great to have all the mod-cons available when needed ~ the shower was amazing after a fab day at the beach, with sand everywhere ! Thank you again for a lovely peaceful stay.

Glamping at The Hive
Dear Paul. Just a quick note to say how wonderful we all found your pods. My daughter thought it was the best part of our 3 stage holiday. The husband loved our own bathroom, and said that would be the only way he would be camping EVER! Good luck and we hope to be back next year La Famille Hosegrove, France The Hosegroves

Tranquil Setting For Camping Pods
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your camping pods, and was a great alternative to a tent. it was warm and cosy, even in the rain, aand was fairly good at keeping the outside noise out. It’s a nice tranquil place and we will most definately come here again.

Wonderfully Comfortable Camping Pods
Wonderfully comfortable and superbly designed pods. The Den kept us cosy and dry, come rain or shine. We will never put up a tent again!!
The facilities are second to none, lovely communal areas, luxurious shower facilities, pretty setting in the beautiful Devon countryside.

Thank you for a great stay!

Hi Paul,
Thank you! We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed staying in the pods.
We are already thinking about booking again and bringing some friends in searly September.
Our pictures are getting loads of attention on Facebook from family and friends so will be sure to pass on good reviews .

Thanks again, Polly and Joel

We had a lovely week at the pods, it was peaceful and very child friendly. The pods are warm and the added extras make all the difference to the whole experience, such as the private bathrooms, the washing machine and the washing lines. We had fantastic weather which added to the experience. Not far from Bude and other lovely places. Would come again and will definately recommend to family and friends. Its a special little place. Louise Cinderby

Never really heard the term until I started looking for luxury camping, I found the pods and can see why. Really comfortable and who cares if it rains :). Thanks for a great week. Steve Walsh
