Wow. The first thing that springs to mind when I think of Hillhead. The Pods and the location is amazing, you can see for miles from your bed!

Our little boy loves the bunk beds and playing outside. Such a peaceful and relaxing location.

The pods at Hillhead Farm are absolutely beautiful, no detail has been missed.

The views are second to none and if Dumfriesshire is the hidden gem of Scotland, these pods are the hidden gem of Dumfriesshire!
