The result is the Escape Podz - a completely new concept in holiday homes that is without doubt the number one glamping location in the country, which they designed and built themselves and both run and maintain personally.
From the Owner
“We travelled the country in the search for the perfect location to build the Pod and as soon as we visited St Ives with its many beautiful beaches, numerous restaurants, cafes, bars and galleries - and of course the world famous Tate Gallery = we knew we'd found the ideal location.”
