Ekopod – Cornwall

  • Geodome for 2 from £110 per night

    1 double

Not suitable for children

Not suitable for pets

One of five smooth white bubbles of style on the edge of rugged Bodmin Moor. A chic, comfortable antidote to city life...

Soon to be joined by other domes popping up at Ekopod, the original Geo was the inspiration for an unusual new retreat. While the design is cool and modern, Ekopod was created as the perfect rural antidote to hectic city life. Now, the Curve and three more domes have joined the Geo in this peaceful spot. You could spend your whole stay simply lying on the sun loungers on the terrace, curled up on the giant bean bag or just staying in bed. The Geo, with its private kitchen and bathroom, sits above the vicarage and looks out over the hills. There's plenty for the outdoors types too, with great walking on the moors (bring your wellies - the area around the pod can get muddy), Cornwall's two highest peaks to climb and even surfing at Widemouth bay. Whatever you do at Ekopod, you'll be doing it in sumptuous but sustainable style.

Our guests say...

"Ekopod was the perfect break from the big smoke, and a lovely location to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday - we felt a million miles from London, it was peaceful and beautiful! The wood-burner is a nice touch and particularly the one in the bathroom to heat bath water for the ROLL TOP bath - definitely the most luxurious 'glamping' we've experienced, but also a nice 'back to basics' fun having to wait till the water was warm enough for a bath! Lyn and Ron are very special hosts, and really made our stay - they thought of everything (even a birthday card was left for my boyfriend!) and were on hand if you ever needed them. We hope to return in the future, and cannot recommend the Geo enough!"

"Very much enjoyed our stay. Very friendly welcome. Honesty shop and access to freezers was a lovely touch. The range of local maps and suggestions of things to do was useful. And a few board games for a quiet evening in."

Jo

"Loved it. Insanely comfortable bed, well stocked and equipped, cooking on the wood burning stove was great fun, lovely and secluded, the honesty shop and meals were great. Loads of fun, basically."

"After a hectic year, we really wanted to get away from it all.  We saw the ekopod on line and loved the location and style of the "tent" ... and we weren't disappointed.  Simon was excellent, his welcome and advice on the local area was really good and useful. Sitting outside in the evening with a glass of wine, looking up at the night sky, watching satellites and shooting stars, not a sound around, no light pollution was absolute bliss.  We explored the local area, even taking the walk to the pub, visited the Holy Well and went out and about to Padstow, but loved coming home to our pod.  Heating the water for the bath was fun, and lighting the log burner in the evening, lying on the beanbag, flickering tealights just nattering was lovely - relaxing and tranquil and just what we needed.  Thank you."

"Loved every minute of it. We could have spent the whole time in the geo as it was so incredible, but there was some fantastic beaches and pubs just around the corner."

Frances

"Yes! It was superb. The venue was amazing, it was very peaceful but there was plenty of things you could do nearby. The fire heated bath and tea-lights was very cosy, finally the stars were amazing, no light pollution made for beautiful evenings. The best thing was the fact that it was so secluded and peaceful, it was exactly what we needed to get away from it all. Managed to take some beautiful photos and see the stars. The only bad thing is that it's such a long drive from home, but totally worth it for the peace and solitude!"

Michael

"Best thing: the peace and quiet and the little things Simon has thought of - plenty of wood etc for the wood burners already in the tent and the honesty shop where simple things like ice were stored if needed. The worst: the weather, but that is beyond our control and actually forced my husband and I to do absolutely nothing which was very welcome after planning a wedding!"

Elizabeth

"Our time in the pod was wonderful and we both left feeling like new people!  The pod is secluded and beautiful.  They really have thought of everything. Best thing - that view!  It's really difficult to motivate yourself to leave when just sitting and looking at it is such a lovely thing to do.   "

Beck

"We had a fabulous time at the Geo Ekopod. The English weather didn't let us down and we experienced both sunshine and rain every day. This didn't stop us having a very relaxing time, which is what we both needed. Loved building a fire each day to heat the bath water. A very unique experience in a very special place."

Kelly-Jo

"We really enjoyed our short break. We loved the way that the Ekopod is sited in a beautiful meadow, with lovely views. We appreciated the quiet, tranquility and beauty of the location. We were able to walk for just 45 minutes across the fields to a very friendly pub for excellent meals. It is quite close to a beautiful stretch of the Cornish coastline and, of course, Bodmin Moor, itself, so we loved the walks nearby."

Pat

"Found the wood burning stoves in both the Pod and bathroom section to be brilliant...such fun to have to "fire up" your hot water for a luxurious bath and have the chance while reading a book in bed to have the kettle slowly boiling away on the stove in your tent."

Jason

"Best thing was the remoteness and the feeling of being in the open air. Wood fire. Seeing the stars from the bath. Worst thing was the weather - maybe go in the summer next time."

Stewart

There were so many thoughtful little details. We experienced just about every kind of weather, and can honestly say that it's a lovely place to be in the sunshine or the pouring rain.

This time last week I was drinking champers and relaxing in the most sumptuous roll-top bath in the middle of a field under a beautiful starry sky. Try the Bodmin Moor ekopod, it has to be done.
