After being recommended by a friend we chose to spend a weekend for my husbands birthday, just the two of us to try something different and to test before we took the children. 'camping' has never been high on our agenda.
Absolutely loved it, comfy beds, hot showers and peaceful except for the noise of the wild. Very much enjoyed no internet, TV,mobile and found the candles, wild noises, roaring fire very relaxing. Did not miss electricity at all.
Jonathan was brilliant, checking all was good every morning and readily available by phone if we had problems.
The food we ordered lasted us two days and was well worth the money as it was delicious and would easily feed a family. Much cheaper than choosing to eat out.
We took a peak at Thornham bay, although it has the shop and restaurant, with small children we will return to Pigeon Wood as it is nicely tucked away and enclosed so that the children can also be wild running around and playing the games they kindly leave about for the them to borrow. Absolutely no worries of strangers wandering around or any vehicles. Thornham Bay was lovely but didnt have the views we enjoyed each morning from our tent at Pigeon Wood. We will enjoy trying to guess all the noises of the animals with the children.
There is the honesty pantry which stocked most essentials and a small shop for any other items a 5 minute journey away. We literally turned up with our wine then popped out for a few extras as most things were provided.
If you want a wild (as England gets) yet relaxing stay full of the finer things that generally 'camping' doesnt provide this is the place to be. Ideal family location.
