Three of us camped in the field for a couple of nights this weekend. Facilities are exactly as advertised - basic and straightforward but clean, tidy and good value. We didn't eat in the pub as we like to cook our own grub as part of the camping trip, but the menu looked tasty and varied. On both evenings we had a few drinks in the pub. There's a great atmosphere, the beer's good and the customers and the landlord are all really friendly.
Nice big warm fire, good interesting conversation and decent drinks. Not quite sure what else you'd want really? Second time we've stayed this year, just as good the first time. Really nice walks right out from the campsite. This is a place with a real personality and not just your usual identikit place.Thanks for a really enjoyable weekend. Cheers, Alex.
