West Stow Pods is a glamping site situated in a privately owned woodland copse on the outskirts of Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk.

Our site is home to four fully self-contained en-suite Mega glamping pods (approximately 25 meters apart). Each of our glamping pods are fully fitted-out and can sleep up to four. The Pods are heated and soon heat up with body warmth to create a snug and cosy environment.

Each pod has a double bed and a double sofa-bed. There is a wet-room with a shower, basin and WC. The kitchenette has a sink, fridge, microwave/oven, toaster and kettle and you have your own dining table and chairs. The pods all come with freeview TV and a DVD player. The Pods have electrical points, heating and lighting.

Each glamping pod is set in a secluded area of woodland and includes a covered porch, picnic table and chairs and a barbeque.

Two of the pods are dog friendly.

The Mega Pod, made of wood, is designed to be comfortable. It has special roofing material designed to cut down the noise of heavy rain and lockable French doors that are double glazed to reduce condensation and provide sound insulation. The wood is a naturally warm material, with special sheep’s wool insulation and a foil layer that keeps the pod cool in summer, warm in winter.

West Stow Pods is a small, family run glamping site located in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, around four miles from the historic town of Bury St Edmunds. Created in 2013 by Jan and Ed Lengyel, West Stow Pods offers the very best in Suffolk glamping accommodation combined with beautiful surroundings. West Stow Pods glamping site is located on the outskirts of West Stow in Suffolk and is easily accessed from Bury St Edmunds, Thetford and Haverhill.

You need to bring everything you would as though you were going camping i.e. your bedding, towels, BBQ equipment, plates, cups etc. Don’t worry if you forget anything, we can usually help you out!

"Perfect quiet hideaway as base for an holiday"

Ms T Macey - Stayed with partner, Mar 2019

Quiet, well equipped facility for a holiday in the Bury area. More than enough to do within 30 mins travel time of the faculties. Neat and comfortable accommodation with more than enough space for two adults.

Very friendly owners who helped us with a last minute booking and greeted us on arrival. The pod was well equipped and the site is really tranquil and well kept. Not one piece of rubbish or mess in sight, just woodland. The only thing my wife and I disagreed on was the lack of WiFi and mobile phone reception; I didn't mind this, but my wife would have preferred WiFi, given the lack of phone reception. Clearly a subjective issue and for some it will be a positive for others a negative. The shower was very powerful, which I enjoyed. I have marked three stars for cleanliness as the pod could have been a bit cleaner, including down the sides of the bed. But it was only a minor point - it is glamping after all and not a hotel. I will definitely go back when I can and I would recommend it. Lovely spot.

Hello, fisrtly, I must apologise if your Pod was not as clean as it could have been. It was not our usual cleaner who cleaned your pod. We do take our cleaning standards very seriously but thanks you for bringing this to our attention. Regarding WiFi...we are in the process of upgrading, at least to some areas of the site, so that a choice can be made as to whether WiFi is used or not and hopefully phone signal will be upgraded shortly! Such excitement! Many thanks for taking the time to write this review and we hope to see you soon. Regards, Ed

"New Year's Eve break"

We booked a three night break over New Year and stayed in one of the pods. The booking process was very simple, and the communication before arrival was excellent with an email received a few days before arrival. Jan met us in the car park on arrival to welcome us and showed us to our pod. This break was exactly what we were looking for in order to 'get away from it all' for a few days. All 4 pods are positioned carefully to give the occupants maximum privacy, they were clean and cosy and all the facilities such as the TV, heating and shower worked perfectly. The BBQ and the picnic bench outside were a very welcome addition. Customer service was also first class, via email, phone and in person with helpful recommendations about the local area. The only things I would recommend are a gate at the front entrance and motion sensor lights along the paths to increase security. There is no mobile reception in the pods, only a bit of WiFi in the car park, but that's also a positive thing in order to complete the country escape!

Hello there... thanks so much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review. It really does help other customers and we appreciate the time taken.

Hello there... thanks so much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review. It really does help other customers and we appreciate the time taken. We're so happy that you enjoyed your break with us and take on board your comments. We have considered a gate but there is a lot of coming and going at times! Jan has been persuaded to put up some motion sensor lights in certain areas but he's not keen as it disrupts the wildlife! We do hope to see you again. Regards, Ed

"First Impressions"

A Hayden - Stayed with partner, Oct 2018

Excellent retreat set in a very attractive part of Suffolk. Good walking and plenty to take in. Pod was very clean and well presented, well insulated too. Site security a little concerning as appeared to be left open overnight. Loo in the pod could smell quite rustic... Excellent retreat set in a very attractive part of Suffolk. Good walking and plenty to take in. Pod was very clean and well presented, well insulated too. Site security a little concerning as appeared to be left open overnight. Loo in the pod could smell quite rustic at times which was a bit off-putting since it's right next to the bed.

They are perfectly situated in a little woods. Each pod has a kitchenette, bathroom, TV, bed and sofabed. The host was very welcoming and there has been a lot of care put in to making sure the visitor has a lot of local information, which was excellent. My only reservation about us returning was the bed... it was incredibly hard as the mattress was very thin. I did not sleep particularly well both nights, I tried to move to the sofa and again I had the same problem which was a shame as it did affect the experience as I woke up in a lot of pain.
