Sunset

General

  • Adults-only site with spectacular views of Dee Estuary and the Wirral
  • A 25-minute drive from Chester and 40 minutes from Liverpool
  • A five-minute walk from a 16th-century inn

They say mighty hols from little acorns grow… For truly mighty hols then, settle in for peaceful days and nights at Acorn Holiday Luxury Glamping Pods, an adults-only site 25 minutes’ drive from Chester in north Wales.

The site is well-placed for coastal explores – it’s about 20 minutes from Wirral peninsula, the nearest sandy beach is at Talacre (also 20 minutes) and the long-distance Wales Coast Path can be reached less than 10 minutes from base. Prefer walks to be a little less salty? There are trails within five minutes at Halkyn Mountain, and Offa’s Dyke starts 25 minutes from the site.

For a different kind of two-legged transport, turn to pushing pedals along National Cycle Route 5, which zips right through Dolphin. The 372-mile route connects Holyhead and Reading, and passes through Oxford, Chester and Bangor along the way. If this tickles fancies, the secure bike storage on site may be an added incentive to plan for clambers into the saddle.

Time to put feet up, fill up and rest up after lengthy rambles and rides? This is a top spot for basking in peace. It’s a kid-free zone, so the calm of the quiet meadow won’t be shattered by shrieking or crying (unless fellow guests are having an emotional time) and views of the Dee Estuary and the Wirral – ideally experienced from private hot tubs perched on private decks, while making the most of hot eats fresh from private gas barbecues – should go uninterrupted.

    Everything! The hot tub, the view, the location, the pod itself, Liz was a lovely host as well!
    It was my partners birthday so I had emailed Liz letting her know and she got him a card, a little present and put some balloons and a banner up for when we got there.

    Disliked: 

    The one thing I would say is that the people to your left can see on to your decking and if you’re in the hot tub so could do with some sort of extra windbreakers at the side but other than that, didn’t dislike nothing. (If you are wanting to be super secluded, book the bumblebee pod which is the one on the far left so nobody can see on to your decking)

From the manager...

Thank you for your feedback. It was a pleasure having you both. As for the hot tub privacy issue, we will address this as soon as we can.

    We loved the view from the decking, especially in the evening when you could relax in the hot tub. The Bluetooth and lights in the hot tub were also a really cool addition. We appreciated all the bumblebee themed items throughout (as we were in the bumblebee pod!)
    It was my partners birthday and the owners kindly left a card and a bottle of wine which a lovely touch.

    What a beautiful little haven. Such a relaxed and chilled weekend. Something we have very much needed. Hot tub with drinks, soft music and BBQ on the go. Just perfect. Hosts were so lovely. If anyone is hesitant about booking, don’t be. You won’t be disappointed! Will definitely be returning :)

Local attractions

Historians (amateur and professional) will be best pleased with this particular spot… It’s well placed for dives into the past: explores of Rhuddlan Castle and Bodrhyddan Hall, pilgrimages to St Winefride’s Well (in the aptly named Holywell town), and rambles around Greenfield Valley Heritage Park’s industrial era factories and Basingwerk Abbey ruins are within 20 minutes’ drive, and there’s a 16th-century inn five minutes’ walk from base.

Further afield, there are more historical piles to be visited – Gwrych and Conwy castles are within about 30 minutes’ drive, and Speke Hall, Garden and Estate and the Hardmans’ House are 45 minutes away – and cities with storied pasts are easily reached at Chester (25 minutes), Bangor (50 minutes) and Liverpool (40 minutes).

Outdoorsy and nature-filled days are within easy reach too. For animal encounters, take the plunge below the water’s surface at Blue Planet Aquarium (20 minutes) or Rhyl’s SeaQuarium (25 minutes), or pay a visit to the wild creatures at the Welsh Mountain Zoo within half an hour. Hours among pretty flowers and looming trees can be had at Ness Botanic Gardens, 25 minutes from base, or at Bodnant Garden (35 minutes), and Snowdonia National Park is 50 minutes away.
