The Pod


Brand new for 2023, the Pod perfectly positioned in the pretty meadow just across the lane from the farmhouse and B&B, where it joins our lovely Shepherd's Hut at a comfortable distance. Offering the same completely self-contained luxury with easy access, the Pod is totally self-contained, spacious and really cosy, thanks to its superb build quality. Simply laid out with a kitchen area, upgraded from the standard and including a fridge, oven and gas hob etc, there's a sofa, table and chairs for seating and a very comfortable double bed. A little shower room with toilet and basin occupies one corner. Light floods in through the large window behind the bed as well as through the floor to ceiling glazing at the entrance. Double doors open out to a small covered veranda and gravel area with table and chairs.

Whether you are looking for a getaway from it all break or an active holiday sightseeing, walking or cycling the pod is a lovely space to stay and relax. Open from March to October, minimum 2 nights stay. Over 18s only in both glamping options.

Local provisions

We are fortunate to have some excellent independent village stores and supermarkets within a few miles of Kelmscott. While there isn't a shop in the village, there is an excellent pub and Blake's Kitchen in Clanfield, just 3 miles away, is a great deli, bakery and source of general supplies as well as being a post office. Also 3 miles away is Lechlade, which has a number of shops, cafes, pubs, takeaways and restaurants. A little further away in Faringdon (6 miles south east) there is a Waitrose, Tesco & Aldi while in Carterton (7 miles north east) you can find Asda and Aldi plus independent shops. We will happily point in the right direction once here.
