Chantal Siddle at Siddle Equestrian Services in Northwood, near Wem, has gained planning permission for a new glamping pod holiday park.

The site, opening in 2021, will consist of five pods equipped with a small kitchenette with separate showers and toilet block and club room with extensive kitchen facilities and educational area.

She said that the site would be perfect for riding and pony clubs but also intimate enough those just seeking to get away from it all.

“Guests can bring their own horses and dogs – on a lead – and enjoy the facilities which include an Olympic sized arena, show jumps and cross country course,” she said. “Our stables have a solarium and horse shower.”

Chantal’s husband Mark is an equine vet, on hand for any queries that may arise during stays by horse owners.

Andrea Parrish of the Shrewsbury-based The Planning Group Ltd which secured the planning permission, said: “Chantal provides a superb service for equestrians – the training facility for competition horses is the only one of its kind in the area and the accommodation will provide a further attraction to those wishing to make a weekend of it.”
