Our amazing Mega Pod stay

Brand new to 2019, we felt so honoured and excited to be offered a stay in a Mega Pod at Langstone Manor. We have once before stayed in a Glamping Pod, but simply didn’t compare to the luxury we had last weekend at the Langstone Mega Pod!

If you love camping but are looking for a change, but don’t quite fancy a hotel room, a Mega Pod could be just what you’re looking for. Beautifully laid out with a double bed, an L shape sofa-bed which pulls out into a double sofa-bed, TV, dining table and chairs, kitchenette (fridge, kettle, microwave, sink), en-suite toilet – and to top it all off, a patio with table and chairs and a Masonry BBQ!

The whole Pod was very clean and well-kept from top to bottom, with the toilet room being very modern with a heated towel rail. I think for most people, the main concern is the comfiness of the bed, and let me tell you we were not disappointed. We had such a lovely sleep both nights, with the help of being surrounded with pure silence in the evening, other than the faint sound of birds chirping – bliss.

What made the Mega Pods stand out for us, was being able to come back after a day of adventuring, kick off our muddy boots, get into our comfy clothes and lighting our private BBQ. Food and drinks for sunset just topped the day off perfectly, as the last warm glows of the sun beamed down directly onto our patio.

We are still in complete awe of our whole experience, so will definitely be considering booking at Langstone Manor for the summer this year!

Why visit Dartmoor?

Dartmoor National Park is very unique with its rare wildlife, rich history, deep river valleys and incredible landmarks. You will never be stuck for things to do, hikes to walk or places to explore. Castles, mountain peaks, forests, rivers, reservoirs, ruins and mystery rock formations – you name it!

You can find an abundance of granite boulders, rocks and cliffs for miles which form a lot of the Park, dating back to over 300 million years ago – mind-blowing! A reason to visit on it’s own. The park Authority work hard with local farmers, communities and organisations to help conserve this stunning landscape just for us.

Being one of the 10 National Parks in England, and one of the 15 in the UK, it’s not to be missed and should be visited this summer!

What can I do in the local area?

Do any of these sound like something you’d love do? Stroll by the reservoir, picnic in the forest by the river, hike to reach a huge waterfall, explore medieval ruins, get up-close with goats at a farm, see Tigers and Lions at the zoo? We say yes to all of them! Dartmoor really does have it all and to make it easy for you, we have created a bespoke map for you on Google Maps and pinpointed our favourite points of interest.

We have also added some personal recommendations from the Langstone Manor team, on local places for a pint after your long day of exploring; the Peter Tavy Inn and The Whitchurch Inn.

Just click here to view the map – the red marker is to mark Langstone Manor, with all the blue markers being attractions with corresponding symbols. If you have any questions regarding the map and the locations just drop a comment at the end of this article and we’ll be more than happy to help!

Conclusion

We would love to conclude by saying how perfect Langstone Manor made our couples stay for the weekend.

    Hi to the both of you

    As I live in the North of England, I must say that Devon is a beautiful part of England, where there are lots of places to visit .Those Megapods look very interesting and I could imagine myself holidaying in one, taking breathtaking long walks around the Devonshire Countryside. As long as it is not raining, as it has been a wet June so far. We can’t complain as it has been very dry.

    I have not been to Devon since I was a child but I need to visit again, with your review I may have to go again.

    I am glad you have not gone into the scone debate, as I still don’t know if I prefer cream before jam or the other way round.

    Thanks

      Hi Antonio!

      Devon is always worth a trip, even from all the way up there! Where abouts are you from? As you know there really is so much to see in Devon, and at times can even feel like you’re abroad! Plymouth being one of those places, just south of Dartmoor National Park. Oh my, could be mistaken for somewhere in Spain!

      We were actually pretty lucky with the weather, but if the rain was to fall you could always stay cosy in the pod with tea and scones, with jam then cream….

      All the best with happy travels and sunshine (hopefully!)

    Manors always bring me to a nostalgic feeling, so classy and peaceful. The pictures from Langston Manor are exquisite. It’s hard to resist not to spend a couple of days just to get the experience the luxurious ambiance. The pods looks very relaxing with a touch of modernism in the interior.

    It’s good to know that amazing parks like Dartmoor are being preserved and developed so it can be enjoyed by many. I can imagine how great picnics and lovely strolls would be.Thank you for sharing this. Even with few pictures, I was delighted by how it looks. 

    • Kelly

      Very hard to resist indeed! Such a stunning Park and surrounding areas. We were pleasantly suprised with how modern the pods were inside – modernly built and decorated yet still feeling cosy and outdoorsy! Perfect combination 🙂

      We’re so lucky to have such parks locally in the UK, so deffo need to make sure we take care of them and the wildlife.

      Thank you for reading and leaving such a lovely comment! All the best

    Firstly, wow! I love your website and ideas. I have to admit that I love travelling although I don’t get to do much of it at the moment.

    I haven’t been to Langstone, but you have definitely made my mind up about visiting there. You also answered my question about having dogs there. Brilliant! 

    U have done camping, but never glamping! It’s definitely on my bucket list. Thank you. 

    • Kelly

      Thanks for commenting Joanne 🙂 really glad you like it, means a lot! Glamping is definitely something that needs to be tried at least once, just for that little bit more luxury – got to treat ourselves sometimes don’t we haha

      It’s so lovely dogs are allowed too! We do hope you get to visit here soon and travel around a bit more – make sure to make time for travelling, even if it’s somewhere local 🙂

      All the best

    It looks very beautiful and cosy for a weekend gate away. But I didn’t see the toilet in the room, are the toilet common? 

    I really like the fact that there are lots of activities to do around, that it is not completely isolated. I am not an experienced caper, so the Langstone Manor can help me start on a slow pace with camping. I really like the place.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Kelly

      Ohh honestly it was SO cosy and cute! So romantic too 🙂

      There is a toilet in the room, which is such a perfect touch. It’s at the back next to the bed. It’s just the showers which are communal, but are also very nice and well kept!

      Yeah I think not being isolated is such a major factor. As long as you can drive, you can take your own car or even rent one, so nothing is too far away – lots to do, never enough time haha just an excuse to go back!

      Definitely a great, well equipped Park to visit for a camping beginner, with friendly, helpful staff with lots of advice and leaflets.

      Thanks for commenting, have a fab day 🙂

    Hi Kelly and Luke! 

    I’ve just read your review on the Langstone Manor Holiday Park and I think it is really informative by listing all the questions people may have about this park, including the accommodation, the facilities and also the contact information.

    Besides, I’ve also acquired a knowledge of Mega Pods since there aren’t any of those in where I live. So, it’s really fascinating to me and I’m eager to try it if I get to visit here.

    I know it is suitable for couples and families to go, but is it also suitable for traveling alone?

    Best wishes,

    Jonath

    • Kelly

      Hey Jonath, really glad you found the article useful 🙂

      This was actually our first time learning and experiencing a Mega Pod too so we were super happy with it! Before Langstone Manor, we hadn’t actually heard of them before either.

      Definitely suitable for solo travellers! I actually said to Luke I wouldn’t mind staying in a Glamping Pod myself on my own just to meditate and read haha gotta have that alone time too sometimes! And this would be such a perfect spot.

      All the best and thanks for commenting Jonath 🙂
