“Highly recommended”
Reviewed 10 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We came here for a short break over the weekend with our dog and had a fantastic time! The pods are great, beds, toilet, shower, kettle, sink etc. There is a fire pit outside aswell as a small BBQ. A shop next door with basic necessities and small cafe. We went for a walk up to the mast and waterfall it was beautiful. Everyone was very friendly too, there is the inn down the road (a 2 minute drive) which is located next to the ferry which takes u across the loch to fort William. An absolute a bargain! Definitely recommend this place to stay

The pods were really lovely and a great place to stay for a trip to Nevis. The customer service was excellent and the village shop just in front of the pods is also owned by the pod owner and do a good breakfast (great value too!). John was a wonderful host and owner. The pods themselves were clean, modern, warm and the bathroom had a shower, toilet and sink (we stayed in pods in the Cotswolds and didn't have a bathroom. Outside the pods there was a picnic table, fire pit and incredible view!

For breakfast we had breakfast baps and Paninis and I have to note deleina who was an outstanding waitress! Service with a smile never goes a miss.

This is no reflection on the pods or their owners but if you can avoid it DO NOT book through homeandaway.com. They are the worst website I have ever dealt with and were very unclear about our booking. The home and away helpline were useless and at points I did not know if we had our pods or not. However, Izzy the owner of the pods was helpful the very first time we spoke to her and apologised for home and away despite it not being her fault. I would say book the pods but do so on trip advisor or directly.

“Fantastic Stay, lovely welcome and amazing views!”

I stayed here the night after my wedding in order to break up our journey home, and we both totally loved it! The pods are in great condition and feel brand new inside, with everything you need for a stay. It is basic but bedding was provided for us on request, and we could have our dog with us in the pod as well, which was fantastic, and we were pretty comfy.

We received a lovely welcome from the owners of the lodge and couldn't have asked for more to be honest, loved the location and the views! It can be a little tricky to find, but if you head to the village shop in Clovullin, you'll find the pods with no issues at all. The scenery is breathtaking and there's great walks nearby. We got the Corran ferry to Ardgour which was very handy, and we went to the Inn at Ardgour which was lovely for dinner (and also dog friendly!) The inn is only about a 10-15 minute walk from the pods so very handy, specially as we had a lovely evening for a walk!

We are already planning when to go back and stay at these pods, we were made to feel so welcome and really enjoyed our stay here, it was perfect! i've already recommended them to friends and family!!!

“Nice place, just hard to find”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I stayed for one night in one of the pod with my two kids. The location itself is very nice, offering a beautiful scenery. The pod are in "as new" condition, the beds a just not enough comfortable in my opinion. One important information to remember to reach the location: there is a ferry that links Corran and Ardgour. It can save you some time if you are coming from the north

“Beautiful location, what a find.”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Having taken the Corran Ferry we arrived, the scenery was stunning with a view of the loch and the Highlands; Lizzy was welcoming and helpful giving us suggestions for local walks.

The Pod itself was basic but clean and in good condition, tea making facilities were provided but bedding and towels will cost extra but our sleep bags worked a treat. For an alternative to camping the pods were perfect, it was a fabulous find.

“Beautiful area, great investment but inexperience from those who were on hand proved challenging.”

Opted for a Scottish location wigwam pod. The site I booked was very new and 3 pods were in excellent condition. With not much to do and single track roads in either direction, being close to nature is an essential want from anyone who books this accommodation. Izzy and her family are very welcoming although proved over demanding when things went wrong. A bad leak caused flooding in the shower room through the night. I understand things go wrong and am rarely phased by anything but after being told a plumber was coming, having the water turned off, I opted to remain in the pod as I wanted to give them the fair opportunity to fix things. After returning from an afternoon out, I waited for information. I had to drive to the local hotel to use the loo. After being told the shower mat would be washed, dried and returned, we were told a plumber was on his way, nobody was available to ask or assist, and we had no water to even have a cup of tea, it was 8.10pm before we were offered alternative means of facilities. The decision had already been made to depart early by this time. After the car was packed up, I wrote a note to Izzy and handed in the keys. 10hrs later and no contact has been made. Such a shame as the pods are amazing, cosy and much better than tents. I feel let down and that they can only lean from experience. The venture is new and will take far more bookings to become established. Would be perfect in the summer. Just a shame we encountered what we did and the owners hadn't made a little more commitment to being on hand and communicating more.
