This was a perfect introduction to glamping. The yurt was spacious, comfortable and very relaxing. Every single member of staff was lovely. The toilets and facilities were clean. The site is very dog friendly. In short, there is nothing I could fault. Excellent weekend.

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.
