West Stow Pods is a family-run glamping site in the heart of Suffolk’s scenic countryside. Situated roughly four miles from East Anglia’s historic town of Bury St Edmunds, West Stow Pods offers a range of accommodation, including four cosy MegaPods, two Woodland Lodges and our star attraction: Pod Hollow; a halfling-inspired subterranean dwelling nestled in the side of a grassy knoll. Come and stay with us for a unique and tranquil glamping experience in one of Suffolk’s picturesque woodlands.

We are dog-friendly too!

Here are some of our reviews...
Welcome to Middle Earth
We stayed in Pod Hollow for 2 nights in July. After a very friendly welcome from Jan we settled into life in Middle Earth. A must stay for LOTR fans but truly for anyone wishing to escape. Tranquil surroundings, comfortable, quirky with every modern amenity you could wish for. The attention to detail is second to none, a truly amazing place. Pod Hollow has its own parking and entrance set in a flourish of wildflowers and woodland, a perfect spot. There is lots to do locally including some picturesque walks. Go and find Middle Earth you won't be disappointed. (July 2019)

Back to Nature with added Luxury.
We stayed at West Stow Pods for two nights, it was easy to find and had plenty of parking. We stayed in the Woodland Lodge cabin. On arrival we called the owner Ed, he came down and met us at the cabin, he was friendly and welcoming. After letting us into the lodge he explained where to find everything, and offered us some advice on some amazing walks in the local area. The cabin was clean, tidy, had a range of DVD's, Bored games, books, maps and small collection of children's toys. We had an amazing stay at West Stow Pods. We will definitely stay again. (July 2019)

As close to perfection as we could have asked for. (February 2018)
I really don't think that a simple TripAdvisor review can do this place justice. It's an amazing place, in a fantastic location and I can't speak highly enough of *the pods *the people *the location *the vibe.

A two-minute walk from the front takes you to a lovely walk around a lake, and a forest, and a 2-minute drive you can be in the Kings Forest which may as well be in another country.

You have absolutely no idea that you're only a 5-minute drive from Bury St Edmunds, which saved us as we'd cooked all our bacon on the first night/next morning on the BBQ.

Honestly, words can't sum up how good this place is - you really do need to go and experience this for yourself.

Many thanks to all involved for giving us such a wonderful couple of days.
