Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here for valentines, booking was easy, checking in was easy, the outside looked beautiful. opened the door and was blown away, all Valentine’s decorations up ❤️ the pod smelt beautiful, it was lovely and warm. The hot tub was heated up for us so we could use it straight away :) The afternoon tea was delicious. There was everything we needed in the pod. Tea,coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, cute little soap. :) plus an honesty shop-but didn’t use it, a nice touch if needed though, we booked pet friendly, Which had plenty of dog covers to use, which we did use as it was raining all night so we didn’t make it messy inside, plus a dog bowl. They really did think of everything. We have stayed in a few pods while travelling around, this definitely is the best one by far. Thank you so much :) worth every penny. Thank you for letting us check in a bit earlier too :) much appreciated ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It was a stunning pod which had everything you could possibly need for a short stay. The hot tub was the best part of the stay. On arrival, there were some home-made biscuits which were super yummy. The pod is so well thought through, very clean and homely. A bery peaceful setting. Definitely worth the money for the use of the hot tub and for the whole stay.

Pod 1 Highmoor Me and family hired all 4 pods for a special occasion and wow it was amazing. From views across the country side while enjoying a dip in the hot tubs. The pods are so clean and well designed. Emma the owner was fantastic and always on hand if you need anything. There is a little pod at the end for bits and pieces like food and ice cream etc. I would highly recommend to anyone and we will definitely be using again.

We’ve had the most peaceful 2 night stay at Castle Guards Farm Retreat, we couldn’t fault it ! Lovely location near enough to Cockermouth but situated away from any road noise. Bed was incredibly comfy and the underfloor heating meant we were still warm and cosy even with the weather being partially chilly. Emma has been a great host, only a phone call away when we needed a hand starting the fire for the hot tub. Will definitely be looking to stay again in the summer !

We stayed 1 night just before Christmas in a beautifully decorated pod. The pod was so warm and cosy and the beds were incredibly comfortable. It was the perfect pre-Christmas stay. Emma is so kind, helpful and welcoming. Looking forward to our next stay.

I never write reviews but this place definitely deserves one. Went with family and friends! Great place for family parties or somewhere to completely chill out. Perfect for any weather as hot tubes are even nicer during the winter months. We took children age 5-15 and they thought the pod and surroundings were amazing. They were able to explore whilst we knew they were safe. The pods as the cleanest and most practical I have ever stayed in. Everything you need is there. There was many extra little special features that made the post magical and homely. The temperature of the pods was very comfortable. We will defo be booking for various events next year including my teens birthday. The children were genuinely gutted to be leaving but unfortunately they were booked up. The fact we live 7 miles away but still felt like we were away blew my mind. The owner is so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. I would definitely recommend ordering cakes for arrival !!! My knew favourite mini break destination.
