“Accommodation with a delightful difference”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

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.

Stayed November 2013, traveled as a couple

My wife and I recently stayed one night in this amazing location situated under the side of a hill and looking out onto a lily pond complete with timber arch bridge.
This place has an old world charm about it. My only criticism is that the custom made bed is a little narrow unless you are used to sharing an old fashioned sized double bed.
Lovely to sit with the doors open and watch the swallows darting over the pond.

Underhill is a wonderful romantic glamping retreat. We stayed one night and had a really lovely, relaxing evening - watching the wildlife by the pond, cooking the amazing dinner (prepared by host Jessie so all we had to do was light the BBQ and cook it!), and drinking wine under the stars. The setting is gorgeous and very peaceful. The cave is very cosy and candlelight makes it look even more special, and the bath cave is excellent - plenty of hot water! Everything's provided to make it super simple so we almost forgot we were 'camping' (and therefore had to do the washing up!).
Definitely recommend Underhill for couples looking for a relaxing short break away from it all.
