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 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 perched on private decks, while making the most of hot eats fresh from private gas barbecues – should go uninterrupted.

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.

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

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.

    Wonderful service from the owner who gave us great information about the area and things to do.
    Overall an amazing pod and hot tub with the extra bonus of a gas bbq which came very handy. This place was perfect for a 2 night stay with great privacy and views. Not far from some lovely locations for day visits i.e Chester and Conwy. Can’t fault it!!

    So quiet! Absolute bliss!! Butterfly Pod spotless and absolutely beautiful. The bed is so comfy!!!! Lovely little pub 2 min walk serving nice food, have to book a table because of the covid-19 restrictions but liz leaves a handy information pack in the pod with all phone numbers and recomendations for days out etc. Hot tub was absolute heaven!!! Phone signal was rubbish but we loved that we totally switched off from life :) pod fully equipped with everything needed for during our stay, the celebration pack liz left us for our anniversary was a nice little touch.
    I'm going to miss waking up to that view tomorrow

    We had the the best weekend and will 100% be back to stay again!!

    Thankyou liz and Garry

    We loved our short stay at Acorn luxury glamping. Liz met us when we arrived and showed us all we needed to know about the pod. The hot tub was fantastic, very relaxing to sit and watch the stars. The site was very quiet with no noisy neighbors, even though all 4 pods were occupied each night, and we were pleasantly surprised at the slave in the pod too.

Thank you for your review. I was as surprised as you regarding the slave in the Pod! Delighted you had a good stay. Liz.

Outdoorsy and nature-filled days are within easy reach too.
