We stayed in the tree house for a couple of night during the February half-term. It's beautifully put together and a real couples treat. The room was spacious and comfortable with many luxuries on top. The bath, shower, sauna combo was cool. No need to go anywhere in the evening but drink sun downers and make a pizza. It was...

We had a wonderful stay here in December, loved sitting in the hot tub whist watching a frosty sunset. We enjoyed a glass of Burgundy on the deck, with the fire pit blazing; snuggled on the luxurious bed to what he shooting starts through the star gazers hatch, with the rotating wood burner burning bright. We will be back!

We stayed in the Tree House.... this is an amazing place to spend a weekend literally away from everything.. quite magical! The disappointment.. neither the Sauna or the hot tub worked. despite calls and texts on the Friday nights and saturday morning eventually we managed to get hold on someone who had turned his phone off!! My husband told him...

I am very sorry to read your post. As discussed by email privately, you were aware that we were working under exceptionally difficult personal circumstances on that day with emergency back up in place for the 1st time. Unfortunately, as we explained, this emergency back up was not up to normal standards, subsequently our emergency systems have been reviewed and...

From the moment we arrived we knew this place was going to be truly magical, we made our way down the well lit paths to our huge tipi tucked away in its own secluded part of the woodland. Its was everything we had imagined and more.. lovely log fire, heated blankets hot running water and plenty of quirky extras! Communal...

For our return visit over two nights to this very special place, we were accompanied by the same couple as last time plus another couple from Texas. We opted to stay in 'Bodger' having been in a yurt last time around. Although we did not partake in a woodworking course this time, our stay was just as good as the...

I could not reccomend this experience enough. Staying in the woodland during winter last year really was wonderful. We were the only guests on site and it really did feel private and magical. With open fires and hot oudoor showers it warmed the body and sprits on a cold December morning. The outdoor kitchen really is a treat and a...

My boyfriend booked this for us as a very misguided birthday surprise. I have not once suggested that I enjoy camping and the site took 7 hours to get to from our house. All this set it up to be a long way from the romantic weekend that he had hoped. Exacerbating this was zero preparation in terms of things...

We stayed here over the August bank holiday weekend. It was a fabulous experience. The treehouse itself is beautiful. The surrounding is a lovely wooded setting peaceful and calm. We love cooking and cooking outdoors is great. The pizza oven or barbecue we used every night. There is a shared pizza oven in the common area for the tents (there...

This place is simply one of the best places I have visited. Me and my partner stayed in a Tipi and enjoyed total privacy it offered. The Tipi was fully equipped with a very comfortable bed and a wood burner. Outside the Tipi was a piping hot tree shower. A truly magical experience and one we will do again.

We love Dorset and are always on the lookout for somewhere new to stay. As part of a challenge for my wife we decided to go camping (she does not do camping) and therefore were looking for something slightly out of the ordinary but with some home comforts. Crafty camping exceeded all of our expectations. We stayed in Twybil, one...

“Coracle and Hoppus offer the most privacy, both are tucked away with nothing else beyond them. Coracle has a lovely skylight, but take a sleep mask if you want a lie in!”

“Coracle was a fantastic Yurt, especially for winter/spring. Plus it benefits from the most privacy as you are tucked at the back of the site.”
