My son bought this trip for my husband and myself as my birthday present as he'd been there with his girlfriend and they loved it. It's in a delightful, secluded location and the yurts are very well-equipped. Great for children - there were two in the next yurt to us and they were having a wonderful time. It's very safe as no cars can get near! The beds are comfortable and the toilet and shower block was always really clean. Lovely walks on the Gibside estate and not too far from the seaside - we had wonderful weather and loved walking along the beaches at Whitley Bay, which is under 20 miles away. It's really near to Newcastle and Gateshead but feels miles from anywhere - - in a good way!
