  The Detail...

With splendid, far reaching views of the pretty countryside, and a truly peaceful location, Swallows Field Glamping Pods offer a wonderful place to relax and unwind. These three luxurious, adult only, glamping pods are designed to accommodate guests all-year-round, and are fitted with everything you need for an enjoyable stay.

Each pod comes with its own enclosed garden space - ideal if youre bringing a dog - as well as covered decking area and an outdoor dining spot. And with the option of hiring a private hot tub, there are plenty of ways for you to enjoy the summer sunshine. However, inside, the pods dont let you down. Each have stylish, pretty interiors, with plenty of exposed wood, comfy furnishings, and modern, nicely equipped kitchens.

Designed for couples looking to escape to the country, theres easily enough space for you to rest up and enjoy a romantic rural retreat. Cook up a lovely dinner on your modern, fitted kitchen, and dine al fresco in the warm summer air, or on the indoor dining table.

Each pod is heated using two thermostatically controlled radiators, and there are also heated towel rails in the shower room. The living area also has a wall-mounted TV, so you can spend evenings curled up on the sofa with a nice glass of wine.

Outside, however, you have so much marvellous countryside that youll want to head out and explore. The pods sit on a landscaped paddock that looks out over the Colne Valley, and offers far reaching views of the Essex countryside. Swallows Field Glamping Pods therefore offer a nice base from which to explore East Anglia.

You have some delightful towns and villages nearby, that are home to some lovely pubs and restaurants. Plus, Colchester is only four miles away and was the first city and capital in Roman Britain. The Castle Museum is well worth a visit, and there are plenty of other historic sites around the town. Guests can also spend time on some lovely country walks, and there are also opportunities nearby for horse riding, golf, gliding, and fishing.

However, if you want to relax and unwind and take the weight off your feet, then you may wish to indulge yourself further with some spa treatments. You can either head out to Prested Hall or Kingsford Park, which are close by, or opt for some beauty treatments and holistic therapies on-site in your pod - this needs to be booked in advance.
