Win a hobbit adventure in Suffolk!

We are giving away a chance to experience a Middle-earth adventure in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. You and a guest will get to stay for 1 night at the subterranean dwelling of Pod Hollow, nestled in luscious greenery and woodland.


Nestled in the side of a grassy knoll in a Suffolk woodland, Pod Hollow brings the magic of Middle-earth to life. From the moment excited visitors step through Pod Hollow’s perfectly round wooden door, it will feel as though they are stepping into a storybook.

“The reasons I decided to construct ‘Pod Hollow’ are numerous,” says founder Jan Lengyel. “I wanted to offer something very special to enhance the existing Glamping experience West Stow Pods already offers. The Pods are happily very successful but have been calling out for something a little different. With the Anglo-Saxon Village a stone’s throw away and its connection with Tolkien, a Halfling-style construction seemed like the obvious thing to supplement both our sites, with only the King’s Forest separating them."

Inside Pod Hollow’s subterranean chambers, guests will find two double bedrooms, a sitting room, a fully fitted kitchen/diner and a shower room. On cold winter evenings, cosy up in front of the feature fireplace, the perfect backdrop for recounting tales of dragons and lost treasure.

If the weather is fine, get out and about and explore experiences within easy reach of Pod Hollow. Continue the Middle-earth adventure at West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village, or for great outdoor experiences, head to High Lodge for cycling and walking trails as well as tree-top adventures at Go Ape. Or, simply relax by taking a stroll around the enchanting gardens at Fullers Mill or explore the historic town of Bury St Edmunds with its stunning cathedral, Abbey Gardens, shops and cafés.
