This is NOT glamping. The tents aren't glamorous enough... but it is a step above regular camping because you get a proper bed with sheets, blankets and pillows provided. The location itself is just fantastic! The quiet policy was well stuck to by fellow guests on my visit- the noisiest things were the creatures outside, just as it should be!
A bear box is provided and instructions are very clear as to what you have to put in the bear box and why. You might want to bring your own lock though for the bear box as one isn't provided (I didn't bother, but had no problems).
There are plenty of facilities on site and I thought the food options were good value for money given the location. The showers- like a lot of camp sites- are best used just after they've been cleaned at night or first thing in the morning.
A lot is made of the risks of rodent droppings, advice being given to check the floor of the tent for any signs. The only problem is that the floor wasn't clean enough to spot dirt around the edges. Personally, I wouldn't have expected it to be any cleaner though- it's a tent! Blankets and sheets are provided, but the blankets aren't quite big enough to cover the double bed. If you feel the cold, you might want to bring your own.
I do think it's expensive for a tent, but you're paying for the location.
