My friend & I have just returned home from Pigeon Wood, all be it 25 miles away (we wanted to avoid the 'are we there yet' from the kids & as it was only a long weekend & we hadn't lived in the area for long so still lots of new areas to explore, we thought Pigeon Wood was perfect) We had a fantastic weekend & found everything we needed in our 'tent'. We loved the challenge of starting the fire every day & got it down to a fine art even though neither of us had done anything like that before. Our children loved all of the outdoor space to run around in & visiting the chickens. They were so excited to find eggs in the morning one day. The children made friends with the neighbouring children & got lots of fresh country air. With children the only tip I would say is to take something familar from home for bedtimes as they both got a little scared from the sound of the wind & rain that was around at bedtime. We did & it helped alot to settle them. The beds are so comfy & warm & yes it got cold at night but under the duvets you wouldnt know. Carrie came to check on us each morning & was very friendly & offered advise on the area for local events going on. The cool box was great & we fitted all of our fresh food in there, however in summer or for a longer trip we would of made full use of the local shops as I wouldn't liked to of kept anything longer than 2 days in there just for food safety reasons but we did visit Bircham Mill for some fresh bread & enjoyed bacon sandwiches for breakfast on our last morning. We have decided to revisit & make it a regular weekend away every year in May because we had so much fun.
