Woodland Tipis and Yurts
Reviewed July 15, 2010

We had Woodpecker Yurt at the back of the site. The Yurts are nice and on decking but the foam mattressing and double beds are not comfortable. We would have been better off bringing our own camp beds. The woodland is quite scruffy and badly managed. Lots of dead or dying trees and nettles. Kitchen and toilet facilities are a nightmare. The toilets are right next to the kitchen. It not a pleasant experience to cook breakfast while someone loudly uses the toilet within a few feet of you. The kitchen is filthy and full of flies. The kettle looked as if it had never been cleaned. cutlery and plates are kept on open shelves with only a tea towel to cover the cutlery. This means that you have to wash everything before using it.

Some friends and I stayed here for a girls weekend. It was fab. We had never been on an experience like this before. We had the large yurt 'woodpecker' and the tipi nearby. The weather was hot and sunny so no mud in sight and we didnt need to use the indoor heaters. The yurt / tipi are beautifully decorated with rugs and throws. The people on the site are friendly and it feels very safe there. There is a kitchen area so its a bit more luxurious than camping, and the toilets and showers are well maintained and very clean. Outside our yurt / tipi there is a picnic table, trees with rope ladders for climbing, hammock, fire pit and grill and a small BBQ. Wood is provided for the inside heater and firelighters. Its a magical place in a lovely part of the world. Great for kids. It never gets overcrowded as they dont allow camping - so the only ever have the people who have booked for the yurts / tipis. No cars allowed on site - you park at the car park then use the wheelbarrows to transport your luggage down the path to your yurt / tipi.

The only suggestions I have for improvement are firstly that there was not enough hot water for everyone in our group to have showers when we wanted them. They always seemed to run out of hot water quickly so you have to time your shower right if all yurts/ tipis are booked out. I heard other families commenting on this too. Also a friend and I who were in the king size bed found the mattress very uncomfortable and springy. By the morning I had an aching back. I would have been better on a mattress on the floor I think. I was also quite surprised that although there were recycling bins I couldnt find a composing bin.

We went on a half day canoeing trip with an canoe co at Simmonds Yat which was an amazing experience. We also found a wonderful picnic spot near to the campsite by the river along a public footpath and we went swimming in the river Wye (there is a strong current though so be cautious and stay in the shallow part).

All in all a brilliant weekend and this is a fantastic and magical place to stay.
