I stayed in a woodland shack with my 4 and 2 year olds. It was fantastic!! The accommodation was inviting and cosy and very exciting for the girls. The location is beautiful beyond belief - rolling hills, sheep jumping around everywhere and breathtaking views in all directions. The cafe is perfect and very child friendly with a play area inside...

Cafe on site was lovely and welcoming. Druids temple was a good walk and fun to explore. Beautiful location. The cafe as a nice seating area out side to soak up the views and a friendly seating area in side with nice tea and cakes. Lemon drizzle cake was gorgeous

After visiting the Druid's Temple I called in here for a cup of tea and a sandwich. The staff are very pleasant and the choice of food was quite good - I had a ham sandwich with was served with salad. However I would have given them an excellent rating if the bread had been granary rather than wholemeal. They...

Called in here for a cuppa and light lunch after walking round Druids temple. Very friendly towards us and our dog. Soup and sandwiches very nice, even made mine with gluten free bread. Gentleman serving was very busy but made time to make everyone feel welcome.

It's a cafe that is worth visiting. Good facilities and a fantastic view. Proper dairy ice cream. Only had coffee tea and ice cream so can't say what the meals were like. Background music better than most. Walk to it to appreciate the rest. Druids temple worth a walk also.

I booked a treehouse for a night as a surprise to celebrate my partners special birthday. It was a such a romantic and perfect evening. The tree houses are beautiful and well made. The double bed at the top of the house has a skylight style windo w just above where you're sleeping. The wood burner makes it cosy...amazing for...

The Tree Lodge was beautiful, exactly what you'd imagine a rustic way of living to be like and more. The tree lodges are more spacious than what you initially think. The photos doesn't do the lodges justice. The lodges are very warm once you get the fire going, we were even too hot at one point. We were just so...

Visited for 2 nights with family. We were off to a bad start because we forgot our torches- and although tea lights were provided they didn't give a great amount of light. We walked down to the cafe and had food- delicious and a reasonable price too. The beds were extremely comfy and although you can accomadate 7 people in...
