FAQs

Are pets allowed? 

Unfortunately, we have a no pet policy. We adore animals, but the field neighbouring the glamping pods has deer and we have lots of animals on the farm we need to prioritise.

Do you accept stag / hens? 

At this time, we are not accepting stag / hen bookings. We are a family run business, with some family members living nearby and we feel the need to respect this.

Can I fit a family of 5 in one pod? 

Unfortunately, due to their size our pods can legally only accepted a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children and our insurance won’t cover us for more than this. Additionally, when the sofa bed is extended, there is insufficient floor space to accommodate further guests. We recognise that this is disappointing for families of 5 or more and can only apologise. We are a new business venture and all being well, we hope to expand in the future, so will take this on board and consider larger family pods.

Can we use the open farm before/after our stay? 

Yes! Check in is at 3.30pm and check out is at 11am. However, you are more than welcome to visit the farm either side of these during their opening hours 11am-5pm. We have luggage facilities on site if you would like to store your belongings during your visit.

Is it suitable for babies / infants? 

With a raised decking, a sunken hot tub and an exposed fire pit, we recognise that little ones visiting The Pods will require constant supervision! However, we don’t want to completely exclude families with young children. Therefore, we have chosen to make any visitors acutely aware of this, and leave the decision up to them. Kids love the open farm, so it seems a shame to say they aren’t welcome, but as a business we launched as a romantic couple’s getaway and so feel the need to emphasize that The Pods were not specifically designed to prioritize the safety of little ones. Please be aware that should you choose to visit with your young children, you may be asked to sign a safety disclaimer notice. Upon booking, we ask that you specify if you require a cot bed. We appreciate your understanding.

What is your Covid cancellation policy? 

The Pods at Streamvale will comply with Government guidelines and regulations surrounding Covid 19. In the scenario of another full lockdown, guests will receive a full refund.

If you have tested positive or are experiencing symptoms and you are booked to stay with us, please notify us by email or phone to discuss the postponement of your booking. We at The Pods at Streamvale want to make sure you can still enjoy your retreat, even if it takes place on a different date to originally planned.

Do you have disabled access? 

Yes! We have a premium pod available with disabled access. Please notify us upon booking if you require any assistance. The Pods have limited space but we will do our very best to make your visit as convenient as possible.

Does each pod have its own hot tub? 

Yes! Every pod has its own private sunken hot tub for you to enjoy during your stay!
