Swallows Field Adult Only Glamping Pods

Welcome to Swallows Field Glamping Pods. Situated to the West of Colchester our three Luxury Adult Only Pods stand on our landscaped paddock, overlooking the Colne Valley. With far reaching views of the Essex countryside and ancient woodland, the outlook from each pod is simply beautiful.

Designed to accommodate guests all year round, the pods are dog friendly and have enclosed gardens so that everyone can enjoy their time away from home.

Wendy Buchan, August 2020

It is difficult to think of how Swallow Field Glamping Pods could be improved. The whole set up for dogs is perfect and means we could relax and enjoy the break, amongst the beautiful countryside. Liz and John were perfect hosts and ensured the Pod was beautifully clean and brilliantly equipped. We can't wait to take Luna back!
