We were really looking forward to staying at the Surf Pods as part of our 2 week trip to Cornwall. After a fabulous 7 nights near St Ives we travelled up to Bude full of expectation. On arrival we followed the instructions in our email and called the telephone number. Straight to voicemail. We waited for approx 15 minutes, kept...

I booked a couple of nights here for my boyfriends 23rd birthday as something a little more quirky than a hotel and we love the outdoors. We struggled to get in contact with owner/or who was ever meant to show us to our pod and eventually asked another person staying at the pods who gave us an alternative mobile number...

We arrived in the afternoon on Easter Saturday and were allocated our pod. Unfortunately it was in the centre section which appeared to be the most cramped of the 3 areas and our pod looked straight into the one opposite. Plus it seemed to be the only one not getting any sun on its patio. I did ask if there...

It is a shame that our guest didn't enjoy this unique glamping experience. We do tell our guests on the website that our Surf Pods is a special way of camping and not a hotel room. We have 6 extra showers on site and we always advise guest to requests camp beds for children older than 8 years old.

Just got back from an amazing 3 day 2 nights stay in The Pods. Cosy, warm, relaxing. The kids loved the place exploring and having a fire in the evenings. Very child friendly, easy to relax and an absolute bargain with the prices. 5 min drive from Bude. I can't speak more highly of the place. Thank you for such...

We were amazed by the treehouse, beautiful setting. Disappointed by the fact we only saw one staff member (the housekeeper) who did a fantastic job of showing us to the treehouse and facilities. We didn't see anyone else the whole time we were there though. There wasn't a welcome pack or instructions on how to use the wifi which we...

Booked to stay two nights in the treehouse and came home after the first night. We arrived at 10:30pm on Friday and despite giving prior warning as requested on the website all we were asked was to phone when we were approximately an hour away. We did so only to receive incoherent directions to the site and nothing more. On...

Stayed two nights at the Atlantic surf pods. Pod itself was very clean, spacious and fit for purpose, Underfloor heating worked well. Great to have our own BBQ to cook breakfast on and also being provided with all the relevant equipment e.g. Plates etc. Our only complaint was that the joining bathroom outside our pod was covered with bugs. I...
