I can't find any TripAdvisor on Manaku PurePod so putting it here.

Arrived at the farm in torrential rain and luckily there was a shed with wellies and waterproofs to borrow. It was about 800metres to our pod through the fields, then through small groves of trees with a stream running through it. It was steep in parts particularly when climbing up to reach the pod. The pod stood majestically above surrounded by incredible countryside. There was a large double bed, a glass table with two chairs, a kitchen area with hob, fridge, sink, kettle and a pull out wooden top for preparation. There were cupboards and drawers containing cutlery, crockery, glasses, games, Bluetooth speaker, olive oil, salt, pepper, tea, coffee, etc
The shower was all glass so you had a fab view of the surroundings but there was a shower curtain. The WC was also all glass with a blind and the sink was large with loads of towels.
While we were there it was cold and the bio fuel heating system was incredibly fast at heating the pod from the glass floor.
We ordered the evening meal and it was waiting for us in the fridge in beautiful containers. The starter was cheeses, cold meats, fish, cheese crackers, chutney, olives, tomatoes etc. The main meal was a steak and a piece of salmon which we bbq'd and had with the pre cooked and reheated with butter potatoes and a good mixed salad. For dessert we had fudge and fresh fruits. We brought our own wine. If I was being picky, I would say a small loaf of bread to accompany the meats would have been great.
For breakfast we had granola with a superb homemade fruit compote of blueberries and raspberries and a pot of natural yoghurt. We also had fresh milk left in the fridge.
When the rain stopped we had amazing moody views from the pod which were amazing as were the stars above watched from our bed and the sunrise. We even had a double rainbow.
This is a must do experience as it is run by solar and bio fuels and is very eco friendly. Fab! Fab!
