A truly amazing time. We had 4 adults and three kids on one tent and it was a fine fit. The tents and well put together and comfortable. The location is second to none. A perfect position to explore, laze on the beach, kick back with your book on the porch tent or travel further afield to some of the many attractions.
Days were spent keeping the stove going and cooking good basic meals on the fire-pit and wood stove. Evenings with a glass of wine, knackered kids in bed and good friends around a candle lit tent.
The atmosphere is relaxing yet induces you to do more than you perhaps would normally when on holiday. The honesty shop is great fun and useful for those things you forget (like flour when you promised people pancakes for breakfast!).
The memoires of seeing our 2.5yro running around first thing in the morning in jammies, dressing gown and wellies to go and let the chickens out will always make me smile. I can't recommend this place enough and will absolutely be back!
With fully flushing toilets out the back as well as gas fired proper shower - you really did want for nothing. One hint I will pass on is to take a flask with you and keep the flask full of hot water as there is no hot water to wash hands with in the toilet of after chicken feeding. We had a kettle always on the stove and kept the flask full.
Other tip I would give is to take a clothes horse / dryer. Essential for those towels from the shower and beach and also to dry off those swimming costumes,
One downside - plenty of wood is provided but it is very green and so does not burn very well and with little heat. We picked up some seasoned wood locally very cheaply and that was much better.
