Enjoy a Hobbit Experience
The Pod Hollow aims to attract Hobbit fans
Pod Hollow is the storybook addition to West Stow Pods' collection of Glamping accommodation and complements their four MegaPods and Woodland Lodge to create a unique holiday destination.
Nestled in the side of a grassy knoll in a private Suffolk woodland, Pod Hollow brings the magic of Middle-Earth to life.
From the moment excited visitors step through Pod Hollow’s perfectly round wooden door, it feels as though they are stepping into a storybook.
The self-catering home sleeps 4 (+1) and is perfect for mid-week and weekend holidays all year round.
Pod Hollow has long been a twinkle in the eye of its creator, Jan Lengyel, and after a few false starts, it welcomed its first guests in 2018.
Jan said: “The reasons I decided to construct ‘Pod Hollow’ are numerous. I wanted to offer something very special to enhance the existing Glamping experience West Stow Pods already offers. The Pods are happily very successful but have been calling out for something a little different.
"With West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village a stone’s throw away and its connection with Tolkien, a Halfling-style construction seemed like the obvious thing to supplement both our sites.
“We offer guided tours from Pod Hollow, through the King’s Forest and along the River Lark embankment for part of the way and on to the Anglo-Saxon Village as just one of several Middle-Earth adventures on offer. Pod Hollow is a unique and unforgettable experience.”
Inside Pod Hollow’s subterranean chambers, guests will find two double bedrooms, a sitting room, a fully fitted kitchen/diner and a shower room.
On cold winter evenings, a cosy feature fireplace provides the perfect backdrop for recounting tales of dragons and lost treasure. Like their hairy-footed Halfling friends, West Stow Pods know how important comfort is, especially being so close to nature.
For more adventurous guests, stepping outside Pod Hollow will open up a world of possibility. From the many walking, cycling and horse riding trails that begin on its doorstep; to the West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village, where visitors can step back in time and experience the Old English History that inspired J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit, there are countless adventures to be had.
So gather your walking sticks and and book a stay at Pod Hollow, a fantastic holiday destination that will let you experience the “ordinary everyday magic” of Halfling life. It's not just for hobbits!
