“Fantastic Time”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Myself and 3 other friends stayed in a Bell Tent at the end of June. We had an amazing time, staff were incredibly friendly and always willing to help. When staying in a hotel I never expect the room to look just like the pictures, but this Bell Tent looked just like it (with fairy lights, floral duvet covers and wicker baskets) and the beds were extremely comfortable. The Bell Tent was also much more spacious than I expected which was brilliant.

The local village was a 10 minute walk away which was ideal and we visited a beautiful beach that was a 20minute slow walk away. We had not prepared anything for breakfast, so we tried out the cafe at the campsite. On two of the days we had the full english breakfast which was delicious and it was well worth the £7. We used the onsite shop for 1.5ltr water bottles as we were doing a lot of walking, these were only £1 which we were surprised by seeing as other shops nearby sold 500ml bottles for the same amount.

We had a very enjoyable stay and would recommend it to anyone (even non-campers as the yurts and bell tents feel more like rooms than tents).

Just had a meal last night outside in the sun, very reasonable price, fantastic food, and excellent staff, the menu wasn't flash, it was good wholesome and varied.
We will be returning very soon

We love Daisy cottage. A great atmosphere, welcoming staff and a wonderful vibe. The Shepards hut is a must. With a little wood burner to fall asleep to the glow of the fire and the crackle of the wood it was wonderful. Thank you Daisy's we will see you again soon. From Kate and Jamie. Acres

We have just returned home from a week at daisy cottages and are already planning our return. Although it will be in a yurt and not a tent next time!! I am a stickler for good customer service, a self confessed complainer and a down right pain in the bum to anybody that works in service based roles but last week I had no complaints!! Not a single moan! Each and every person we came across was attentive, chatty, polite and would go above and beyond anything you could have expected without even being asked! Even the chef and the odd jobs man stopped to ask how we were! I was a little concerned that the kids may have been in the way at times as they are all boisterous and loud but they were welcomed and encouraged to have fun. I would recommend this site to every single person I know.

Came here for a friends birthday surprise and had a brilliant night.

There was 6 girls and we opened the door into our Yurt and were really surprised with how lovely the inside was, we all had beds, blankets, a little stove and cooking equipment and outside had a bunch and bbq to cook on.

We spent the evening drinking wine and having our bbq in the sun - really lovely night and were tucked up inside by the stove when it got dark which was really cosy.

Upon waking up, we tidied away all of our mess, packed our bags and went to the cafe for breakfast, which was good value and nice sausages!

The staff were incredibly friendly and helped us with whatever we needed i.e. lighting the bbq... they even came over about 8.30pm with some happy birthday balloons and came up to us in the morning to thank us for tidying away all our mess - it's really nice to find somewhere in Jersey that offers something different and that you're really impressed with!

I would recommend and encourage tourists and locals to come here and stay in a yurt, a bell tent or the new trailer they have which looks very cute for a really great experience.

We stayed for the second time this weekend. Yurt was spacious and comfy. Atmosphere relaxed but helpful staff ensured minor shortcomings remedied . Pool open and made a good post beach cool off. Owners warm and friendly including the dog. Near beach and bus stop and local supermarket but cows next door and bees and birds ensure a real rural feel.
