My wife and I stayed one night in this naturally pretty and private setting. We were taken to the site by quad bike, a short trip through farm land, by our friendly host, Jessie, and following a quick rundown of the facilities were left to our own devices. There was no further human contact until we were picked up at midday the following day. While there is no electricity at the site its absence is hardly noticed but all the facilities are in place for a comfortable and convenient stay. Heated water is available in the unique and roomy (indoor) shower.
Anyone looking for a relaxing holiday or overnight stay with a difference will thoroughly enjoy this place. It's dry, cosy, private, tranquil and scenic, and if you're lucky the resident frog will provide a brief serenade. A Christmas present this year will be an accommodation voucher for other members of our family to enjoy the experience.
