Great location

Self contained and safe for quarantine and essential workforce bookings. Cleaned to a high standard and disinfected before and after each booking. Glamping at its very best, get away from it all, and digital detox, in this luxury heated compact Snoozy Owl Pod, with your own modern equipped kitchen, ensuite, luxurious double bed, quality bed linen, blankets, bathrobes, towels, blackout blinds, double sofa bed and your own patio area! Spend 2 or more wonderful nights in one of my unique Pods.

The space
The Snoozy-Owl Pod has all the amenities of the Sleepy Squirrel Pod and much more! More; is a larger pod with a larger living space which can accommodate a sofa bed to create a living area.
Enjoy moonlight and star gazing in this Eco pod with all the luxury of a five star apartment! This pod has a compact kitchen, table and chairs for cosy dining, double bed and double sofa bed, an ensuite bathroom with a quadrant shower, constant supply of hot running water and a mains lavatory, electric radiators, little electric stove and a heated blanket:), the bed is made with quality linen and warm blankets rather than a duvet for your safety

In the spirit of "getting away from it all " the pod does not have a TV but I do provide a radio, books and games Please note: that WiFi is available on the front porch of the pod and the surrounding areas, the signal doesn't seem to permeate the 2 layers of solid wood, layer of foil or the wool insulation. If you require full WIFI signal and TV, see my other listings "King bed with Ensuite and full english breakfast" and Cosy Cottontial Studio Apartment.

Sleeps 2 adults in a double bed, and a sofa bed which is similar in size to a small double bed, with bedding provided included in the extra person price.There's enough room for a cot bed and I can provide one if required.

The pod is made of larch wood, and insulated with a good layer of wool, there's also a layer of foil to help keep you Cosy and warm, or cool if soaring summer temperatures need to be kept in check... But this is Yorkshire so we live in hope:)) there's a double glazed bespoke circular door and a picture window overlooking woodland, this provides you with good natural lighting and air circulation.

You will find plenty of coat hooks for walking jackets, a single wardrobe with drawers and a hairdryer. There's head height of 2.5m which gives a feeling of space, unlike the great outdoor tents.

The pod is self catering, a local supermarket is just a short walk. Although, in the fridge and on the shelves you will find milk, orange juice, bread/crumpets, homemade jam and marmalade, butter and a good selection of coffee, tea, biscuits and chocolates to help you relax! These are complimentary just enjoy :)

There are plenty of books and a radio in the pod. The pod has a stone patio area with a table and chairs for you to have breakfast or a late night star gazing experience...

Guests are asked politely not to smoke or light candles, the structure is made entirely of wood, therefore for safety reasons naked flames are not allowed under any circumstances . For ambiance I can provide you with some LED flickering tea lights.
Please note: I do not charge a cleaning fee, instead I trust that you will look after my little Snoozy Owl Pod. The prices quoted are weekdays Monday to Thursday, the price increases slights for Friday and Saturday bookings.

Where you’ll be

Ilkley , West Yorkshire, United Kingdom

The immediate area is extremely quiet and peaceful, my home is adjacent to a woodland, and a very pretty open (not spooky) cemetery with two beautiful Gothic chapels, one faces North and one South, neither of which are used for any ecclesiastical purposes, but have been converted into office space. The cemetery is used regularly throughout the day and into the evening by dog walkers, and walkers wanting to take a leisurely stroll along the river, or cross the bridge to Middleton Woods (known by locals as Bluebell Woods). From the bedroom window squirrels can be seen scurrying up and down nearby trees, rabbits can be watched playing at dawn and dusk and there's also an owl that can sometimes be heard hooting at night.
The pod is in my garden with lawns patios, flowerbeds, trees and the sleeping area overlooks the adjacent woodland.

My home is near a Yorkshire Water plant, only water is filtered here to produce drinkable clean water, and any odorous waste is removed and treated at a plant 12 miles away. The wind predominantly blows south to easterly along the river Wharfe, which is in the opposite direction of my home and downstream towards Burley in Wharfedale. Ashlands Road is also the home of the award winning micro brewery "Ilkley Brewery" a bottle of Mary Jane is highly recommended!

Although the Pod is self catering, I have left you a supply of tea, coffee, biscuits and chocolates, homemade Jam and Cardamom Marmalade, crumpets,fresh milk in the fridge, enough to start your break. The local independent supermarket is just a 5 minute walk away.
