  1. Definitely NOT a Pod Person says:

    Barwell is a lovely place. You should really consider vacationing here this year.

    Once you experience the warmth and friendliness of its 8,750 residents, it will change your life forever. And when you leave (and you WILL eventually leave, even though you’ll wish you didn’t have to), you’ll take a little piece of Barwell with you and every place you go will be touched by the time you spent with us. EVERY place you go.

    Did I mention what a lovely place Barwell is? Because it really is. A lovely place I mean. So lovely…
