The pod sleeps two humans and truly is luxury camping with an ensuite shower room and small fitted kitchen. The kitchenette has a fridge, microwave combi oven and kettle and a supply of tea and coffee for your stay. There is also a TV-DVD player and a selection of DVDs for you to enjoy. Outside there is a table and chairs and use of a BBQ on request. The pod is also only five minutes walk to the Bell Pub at Standerwick which does great meals and is dog friendly. Just a mile away is the White Row Farm Shop with everything you could need and an award winning fish and chip shop.

We had a lovely time in the Pod, cosy and warm, with everything you need.

Truly Dog Friendly Holiday Accommodation!

Widget's Farm loves dogs and welcomes them at no extra charge to you.  The pod is also designed with them in mind with a securely fenced garden and lots of space to run about.  You are also in your own meadow so if your dogs need seclusion, Widget's Farm is perfect.  We've even had five huskies stay in the pod with their humans!

We are extremely relaxed with our doggy guests but just have the following Petiquette expectations to keep everyone safe and happy...

  • Dogs are welcome on the bed but we ask they are dry and clean before being invited up. We also suggest you bring a doggy throw with you.

  • All poop should be picked up both in the garden and the fields.

  • Dogs are requested to be up to date with core vaccinations and parasite control before coming to Widget's Farm. This means simply core vaccines within the last three years or evidence of positive titre test results.

  • Dogs should be on lead when they first arrive at Widget's Farm so we can explain where they can be offlead safely.

  • Dogs should generally never be left alone in the cabin. The exception is a crate-trained dog which, if truly relaxed, may be left crated for up to 2 hours in a day in the cabin.

Lovely setting and fab, cosy little pod - very private and perfect for a few days away with our dogs...

Loved staying in the pod and hope to return. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the pod had everything we needed. It was really lovely sitting in the evening in the middle of a field with a great view of hills and the Westbury white horse.

How to book...

There are three ways to book our luxury cabin:  Direct through ourselves (cheapest route as no booking fees); through Airbnb (click here), or through TripAdvisor (click here).  To book direct with Widget's Farm, either give us a call (07900 403126) or send us an enquiry form below.  When we have responded to your questions, please email us a quick acknowledgement so we know you have received it and it hasn't gone into your junk mail folder.  

If you are booking directly with us, to secure your preferred dates, we simply require a non-refundable £50 deposit for short breaks and £100 deposit for weekly holidays.  The balance of payment is then due no later than one calendar month before the holiday starts.

Please be aware that Widget's Farm is advertised on several holiday letting websites and the available dates are live on the online calendars. For nearly every holiday we advertise we receive several inquiries and indications that people want to book, but sometimes they come to nothing, so the only way we can judge whether dates are booked is when a payment is made. This is also the reason why we are unable to accept cheques.  If you are not able to book straight away then please just check back with us that there is still availability when you are able to book
