Absolutely loved the Yurts, a great experience, lovely staff, great location - perfect for walking/cycling etc. We would definitely recommend this to friends and family. Whilst its only a 10 minute walk from the nearby town it feels really secluded and peaceful. I really enjoyed using a wood burning stove for the first time (got a bit obsessed!) and El-Jay... More

We had a romantic idea of staying in a yurt and glamping, but the reality was very different. It's a bit like sleeping in a leaky shed - spiders, snails, slugs, a cricket, earwigs....I could go on. The cleanliness of the yurt and facilities wasn't up to scratch. We put a brave face on for the kids, but we should... More

We're very sorry that you had what sounds like a bad experience. We can however only help when we are made aware of issues at the time. We always say in our welcome briefing "please tell us if there is anything we can do". Sadly you didn't so we were unable to assist in any way. I'm afraid that living... More

As all the reviews show this is really lovely location, very peaceful with lovely views. We arrived on a traffic free route by bike from Yarmouth so you don't really need a car. And if you don't want to bother cooking there is lovely pub 5 minutes away, and a farm shop which does a great cooked breakfast just off... More

Thanks for your kind review and I'm glad you didn't experience any problems with the compost loos, the vast majority of guests don't, but we are conscious that it only takes one person using them incorrectly to make life unpleasant so we are reviewing the situation this winter. We do have lovely rugs I promise and I'm truly sorry you... More

The location is wonderful. Great views & lots of footpaths to go walking along the river and through meadows. Great beaches and the ferry port is just a short drive away. The yurts were comfortable. Grass was mowed in pathways so meant it was easy to walk around & kids could be pushed in buggies. But rest of lawn left... More

Thanks for your comments and we're glad you enjoyed your stay. You'll be pleased to hear that, although we try very hard to keep the compost loos clean and properly service we are looking at a different provision over this winter and also at supplying piped water to the communal area. These are matters we are discussing with our landlords... More

Loved our stay on site camping (glamping) for three nights in the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, beautiful surroundings along with the helpful owners made for a truly amazing holiday. My son loved toasting marshmallows on the campfire and waking up next to a field full of cows, donkeys and sheep. He is missing his tent home... More

After being hassled by our kids to 'go camping', we succumbed with a compromise to try glamping and were recommended this place by friends who have been many times. I feel I had to respond to a previous poster ("Hen Do") as I feel her comments are a little unfair. We were, in fact, one of the other campers there... More

Thanks for your helpful and fair comments although I have to say that the loo seats were not and are not broken but, if pushed to one side, do feel unsteady. We try to rectify these issues at least twice a day. We are reviewing the provision of loos this winter and hope to have a third shower installed for... More

The 2 main concerns we had was the smelly leakage around the toilet block, and the not naturally open and friendly hosts. We too felt watched like errant children (see other reviews). Some obvious very dodgey DIY in the toilet block seemed likely to be replicated in the more important out-of-sight drainage systems that clearly weren't functioning properly. Owner put... More

We as a group had a really great time. However, a few issues did arise. For a large group the facilities were not readily available. There was 2 urns of hot water (giving 6 cups at best) we had 16 girls all needing this. If the site was full then more needs to be available. There were 2 bbqs- one... More

A fun, nature friendly way to enjoy the countryside... Yurts were a first for us and know that we've experienced it, we'd definitely do it again! All the fun of camping without the downsides! More comfortable, more convenient, you feel more at home! And with the quality service Anthony and Ell-Jay offer, nothing can go wrong. We felt taken care... More

We loved these yurts and aren't normally camping fans! Really quiet and relaxing. We were blessed with great weather so that helped! Elle Jay and Anthony were very attentive and helpful. Only 3 of us in a yurt for 5 and felt it may have been a squash for more. Parking was a little walk away which was sometimes difficult... More
