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 for 3 nights between Xmas and New year, was really lovely and peaceful. Hot tub was great once we managed the temperature. The pod was perfect, under floor heating was on when we arrived. Everything needed, would definitely stay again and recommend. Donna popped by to check if everything OK. We walked around the gibside estate. Only negative is the potholes on the drive down to the pods, which could easily be fixed.

Had an amazing overnight stay in the Oak Pod. So peaceful, lovely hot tub and the facilities in the pod were spotless and comfy. Woke up to a frost this morning - didn't notice as we were so toasty in the pod with great underfloor heating. Enjoyed a walk around Gibside, watched sheep being herded, free range turkeys running around and cows being fed. Can't wait to go back.

Lovely relaxing weekend with family. The pod has everything you need . A double bed and a double pull out sofa. Everything you need in the kitchen area, tv, dining table etc. This is the 2nd time we’ve stayed here. The lady who runs it was checking on next door and asked if we needed anything which was nice. If I had to be picky the the fridge could have had a bit better clean . Not something to stop us going again though.

We've just stayed in the Shepherds Hut for one night and it was just lovely. Super cosy with an indoor log burner and well equipped kitchen. Hot tub was amazing with great views. It was a wonderful relaxing night away

I would definitely recommend a stay here. The pods are really cosy and have everything you need. The views are fab and it’s just a quick walk into Gibside estate. The hosts are so welcoming with good communication. We will be back again soon!

We have just returned from a two night stay in the oak pod. It has everything you need and is in a beautiful setting. Spotlessly clean. A good amount of outdoor space and there is good space between accommodation. The wood fired hot tub was much easier to work than we imagined with everything ready to get it going. The peace and quiet was so relaxing. The access to Gibside makes it even better. It is just down the lane and very interesting. We would definitely return.

Stayed in the Shepherds hut for 3 nights for my partners birthday. Hut very cozy, everything you need in the kitchen and bathroom right next door. All spotless. Hot tub was easy to use following the instructions. Stunning views and enjoyed watching all the animals. Definitely visit again.

Has a lovely stay in the Shepherds Hut! Beautiful views and the cabin itself was really comfortable and cosy. Right next to the gibside so perfect for walking in the lush wilderness and seeing the wildlife! Hot tub only took about an hour to warm up and plenty of wood provided for that and for the fire! We also ordered an Uber eats (lol) so even though you’re in the middle of the beaut countryside you can still get things delivered if needed 😍 will absolutely be booking again
