Acorn Holiday Luxury Glamping Pods: The four pods all have stunning views of the Dee estuary and beyond.

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 a truly mighty holiday then, settle in for peaceful days and nights at Acorn Holiday Luxury Glamping Pods, an adults-only site in north Wales 25 minutes’ drive from Chester.

The site is well-placed for coastal explores – it’s about 20 minutes from the Wirral, 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 the local town of 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 on private decks, while making the most of hot eats fresh from the handy gas griddle – should go uninterrupted. (Decks are covered with a perspex-topped pergola too, so rain won't stop play either…)

Please note

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

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Guests under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    We stayed in bumblebee which was the one one the edge with uninterrupted views!

    Everything from the welcome to the little details was just perfect! Liz and Garry were very welcoming and communication prior to staying was excellent!

    Little touches like salt and pepper and spray for the griddle was appreciated!

    Clean inside and out with comfy bed and hot shower!

    I would recommend Betty Berkins as a Tea rooms about 5 mins away from the pods! Great breakfast and hospitality!

Local attractions

Historians (amateur and professional) should 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 abodes 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.
