Wonderful 2 nights here. The staff were very friendly and could not do enough for us. Showers were very clean, Bell tent was great for 2 adults, 4 teenagers and 2 big dogs. I would definitely go back.

We stayed here using red letter day vouchers. The welcome was very good and attentive and the dome tent was as seen on the website so was found to be nice. The facilities we of a reasonable standard and kept clean and tidy. Unfortunately the site is on the side of the A30 which was very noisy with motorbikes out... More

Just come back from a lovely weekend away. Stayed in the exotic themed bell tent and it was lovely, quite romantic too! Everybody was so welcoming, always asking if we were okay or needed anything, nothing was any trouble. Thanks to Nicky, Steven, Anthony and of course Rob for a wonderful stay, would definitely recommend to friends, thank you.

Said she was looking forward to welcoming us, and wanted to know our estimated time of arrival, so she could make... More

We (myself, husband and 2 children age 5 & 9) have just come home from a perfect short holiday at the glamping site. We were originally booked to stay in a bell tent but I received a text en route to the site saying that due to a cancellation we had been upgraded to a yurt. On arrival we were... More

Our first time in a yurt and a wonderful experience it was too. We were made to feel really welcome by everyone working on the site. Comfortable bed, immaculately clean showers and facilities. We loved the out door fire pit, a nice touch. The venue is close to town with a lot of choice for restaurants and shops as well... More

We stayed here in March, and whilst the accommodation itself was really good and the staff really friendly I have to say we were a little disappointed by the location. It's right by a petrol station that you drive through to get to it and just off the main road- we were hoping for a proper country escape but didn't... More
