When you arrive at The Mangersta Pod you will find yourself in an extremely clean and comfortable haven. To ensure you have a good night's sleep the camping mattresses were replaced by a comfortable mattress right from the start.
Situated in the village of Mangersta on the Atlantic coast of Lewis, the pod is a few minutes walk away from a remote beach and stunning cliff walks. This is an area of exceptional natural beauty with over 20 beaches as well as beautiful moorland and lochs.

The space
The ideal place to relax. Very private with a beautiful view over to Mealisval, the highest hill in Lewis.

Guest access
Plenty of parking space. I will be here to meet you to hand over the key and to answer any queries you may have.

Other things to note
Other Pods this size are designed to accommodate 4 people but I wanted the Pod to be very comfortable so I altered it to accommodate 2 people which makes the space so much more relaxing.
There are no hidden charges. Freshly laundered bedding, towels, kitchen towels are included in the price, as are toilet rolls and kitchen rolls.
There are basic ingredients too - tea, ground coffee, muscavado sugar, olive oil, a few herbs. Please don't feel you have to purchase full packs of herbs, spices, flour etc. If I have what you need in my own kitchen I'm happy to share.
There is now a minimum stay of 3 nights as almost all my guests have wished they'd booked at least 3 nights or more and have said that a 2 night booking but only one full day hasn't been long enough to explore Lewis and Harris.
If a 3 night gap isn't available for your preferred dates I may consider a 2 night stay to fill the gap, so please get in touch.
The Callanish Stones and many other places of interest are within a comfortable driving distance. Having your own vehicle is most definitely preferable and advisable if you wish to take full advantage of exploring the area.
No smoking. No pets allowed.

Isle of Lewis, United Kingdom

The village of Mangersta has ten occupied houses, bordered to the west by the Atlantic Ocean. The hills, to the east, are close by. The Pod looks out over the village crofts to the highest hill in Lewis, an ever changing view because of the fluctuations of light and weather conditions.

I've been lucky enough to live here for 48 years and it gives me great pleasure to welcome guests to this special place. It was when I was coming up to retirement I decided to plan this venture, and the Pod was delivered on a stormy day in December 2015. I spent some time giving it its own atmosphere and I received my first guests at the end of April 2016. I have met incredible people of all ages, from all walks of life and all ages. I've always loved living here and guests to The Mangersta Pod have enriched my life.
