On arrival the staff were very friendly and chatty, we were shown around and to our yurt. The yurt was very clean and well maintained, and had a BBQ, chimnea and gas stove outside. All essential utensils were provided,... More

We were given our Glamping trip as a christmas present. On arrival we received a warm welcome from Ken and Jude & were quickly informed that we were to be upgraded from our Hideaway cabin to a very spacious Yurt. The accommodation was fantastic, considering it was early January the Yurt was so warm. The bed was so comfortable, it... More

Based in two Yurts for two nights. Very comfortable accommodation but bring electrical extensions with you and be aware electrical refrigeration space small. Very helpful hosts. If you need anything just ask. Although, if you are planning any activities off site, I would recommend you liaise with the company direct and not through this site. Would definitely return again.

We booked a stay in the Stargazer Hut during the October half term holiday. Unluckily, our stay fell on the night after 'the great storm of 2013' which was all over the news. When we arrived, the campsite had encountered a power cut (along with half of the UK) and the manager and his partner had dedicatedly sourced and rigged... More

Thank you for your kind message. Winter is indeed a magical time on the site and a touch of frost or snow turns it into a winter wonderland.
