Welsh Border Glamping: Parrs Pod

General

  • Peaceful glamping site on the border between Powys and Shropshire
  • A 20-minute drive from Powis Castle or Shrewsbury town centre
  • Smart camping pods with private bathrooms and hot tubs

Welcome and croeso to Welsh Border Glamping, a smart site located close to the border between England and Wales. Set in the peaceful Shropshire countryside, this sleepy spot has three gorgeous camping pods in an attractive rural location.

All pods are cosy and come with a proper double bed (some can sleep extra guests) and are dog-friendly, with up to one well-behaved four-legged friend allowed per unit. Tea and coffee making facilities are also included, while just outside there's a spacious outdoor seating area and a private hot tub just to top it all off.

The pods aren't ensuite, but each one does have access to a private designated toilet and shower in the communal amenities block. This is also where you can go to find cooking facilities, as the communal kitchen is equipped with a cooker, microwave, plates, bowls, cutlery glasses etc. for self-catering days.

The site is in an area with plenty of wildlife and very low levels of noise and light pollution, so remember to sit back, tune in to the sights and sounds around you and to look up at the starry skies after nightfall.

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Nice, clean and quiet place for the short break.10/24/2022

    We liked everything straight away from our arrival. The site was nice and quiet. We were surprised how warm was in pod in this time of year. A welcome pack what Helen left on the fridge was an additional nice surprise. Pod didn't look very big from outside but inside there was enough space for our belongings. The bed was quite big and comfortable. Really we liked everything at this place. The own hot tub and toilet with shower for each pod, the communal area with everything you might need for the cooking... everything was excellent. Helen has done everything to make our stay so pleasant. We would definitely like to come here again. I suppose in the summer time when it's warmer and we could spend more time outside sitting in the comfortable chairs by the pod and having our meal there or even using the fire pit it would be even better. But in the autumn I can't imagine a better place to stay. Plus the price was really reasonable, so, it was excellent value for money.

Lovely Pods with Hot Tub and own toilet & shower room for each pod.05/25/2022

    Really nice quiet rural retreat with lots of interesting places to visit just a short drive away. Pods were clean & warm. Hot Tub was fantastic. The communal kitchen is home from home & has everything you need to cook. We really loved having our own designated toilet & shower as on most sites they are communal. Would highly recommend and I would not hesitate to return if we were in this area of the country again!
