Just returned from 4 nights in Evelyn.
Arrived intending vaguely to do some exploration of the area. In the end, we pretty much sat in the field, caravan and semi outdoor kitchen for 4 days.
We ventured to the local pub once (very good beer - I'm always dubious about Robinsons due to traumatic early memories of my local pub, but was proved very wrong by two very good pints of Unicorn - and huge portions of not at all bad pub food in the Fox and Pheasant). Then we went back and sat in the field.
The hot tub was great (and yes, very hot), the amble along the river with the mutt was fabulous, the sausages and bacon were (apparently) rather tasty and the hosts were vey tolerant of our " and another thing" requests. (Thanks, Steve!)
Absolutely loved it. As did the dog, who is currently settling into his normal low level depression as he no longer has a caravan to sit outside.
Will possibly try a yurt next time as by night 4 both of us (people not dog) were beginning to get vague grumbles from our lower backs from the rather cosy sleeping arrangement in the caravan.
For other people - and having read the one rather mixed review on here - I would say that you probably need to actually like camping (albeit extremely comfortable camping) if you want to enjoy Drybeck Farm. It's not a hotel in a field. I had no mobile reception for the whole time I was there, which was no hardship for me, but would probably throw some people into complete panic. It also helps if you are comfortable with the concept of the composting loo. Everything, pretty much, is recycled and reused wherever possible here, including making use of visitors' well rotted pooh in the veg garden.
For those of you who grew up with parents who had a copy of The Complete Book of Self Sufficiency on their book shelves and who can count a few (now pretty much retired) New Age traveller types amongst their friends (I could until I typed that) it's a fabulous place that you'll probably love. For those who think that wellies are a fashion item and own a wedge heeled bright pink pair, then it possibly isn't quite what you're after from a holiday destination.
