“Glamping Quarry pod style”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

I booked two nights over the August bank holiday at Dunsdon Farm Quarry pods and the pods and the welcome we received lived up to the previous reviews and the website. Paul and Kirstie have worked hard to provide a wonderful eco glamping experience discreetly nestled among stunning countryside. Thoughtful additions that we have not had in other podding locations were the outside BBQ area with tools, the private heated bathrooms with storage drawers, the electric cool box and heater in the pods and the well equipped washing up bits and pieces and washing machine in the outside washing up station.

The set up of the pods all in a semi circle around a centre picnic bench and BBQ area which is securely gated makes it ideal for a group of friends or families with children to book the whole site and have it all to yourself. If you book just one pod as we did then you need to appreciate that the pods look directly in on each other and you could potentially be sharing the communal area with groups of families that have booked several pods and you need to be happy to muck in and make friends, which is what podding and camping is all about!

It was a lovely site and we would thoroughly recommend it!

Room Tip: If taking your own kitchen kit put it into a plastic box so that you can leave it outside of the pod...

They really have thought of everything. We are used to tent-camping and I have never been to a site which provided so many extra thoughtful touches (for example there were barbecue tools provided, washing up brushes and scourers to name just a couple). The private wet-rooms are a great idea and mean you can leave your soap-bag items in the room.
One suggestion I would make to anyone planning a stay at Dunsdon - take your plates, cups and food essentials in a lidded, plastic box so that you can leave them on the little patio area of your Pod without the stuff getting wet. (We left some bread in a shopping bag and some little critter had a feast!!)
Lovely surroundings, peaceful and beautifully set out. Recommended!

We were really looking forward to our first visit to the quarry pods and were not disappointed. The location is beautiful, tucked away from the rest of the world in total peace and quiet. The pod (or wooden tent as our children called it!) was clean and comfortable. We booked the sleeping pack which I'd recommend and was cosy, clean, good quality and really comfortable. The undercover picnic benches were welcome in the rain and having our own private bathroom was a real luxury. Owners Paul and Kirstie have thought of everything. Would highly recommend and looking forward to going again.

When we arrived we were given a different pod to the one we had booked.
But the pod we settled into was nice. Was exactly how id thought it would be from the information on the website.
Having our own bathroom for the duration of the stay was brilliant.
The owners let us use some equipment to go pond dipping in the nature reserve next door and our children loved it!
Lovely quiet location.
Would go again.

We stayed at Quarry Pods for three nights in July. The pods are as described on the website with the luxury of personal bathrooms in a separate block, this alone is what would entice me to return! The setting is beautiful and tranquil and is seven miles from Bude. Well worth a visit!

Excellent pods with all the finishing touches that you could ask for.
Fantastic amenities from your our wet room to purpose built BBQ's.
Great location for a relaxing and tranquil stay but still near the coast to visit all the beaches and seaside resorts in north Devon and Cornwall

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.

Room Tip: Smaller pods available for couples or larger ones for families.
