We're a family of 5 and stayed in the larger Yurt at the end of April for 3 nights.
The setting is absolutely beautiful, with terrific views and is extremely peaceful and tranquil.
The site was half full when we stayed, so there was no shortage of hot water either from the showers or the hot water flasks (note: we stayed over Easter weekend and the hot water flasks were filled up and ready at 7am even on Easter Sunday and Monday)
We had a meal in the local pub and bought drinks from the local cafe all 5 mins walk away and both excellent (although the pub doesn't encourage kids inside unless the weather is foul - you may see this as a positive!)
Yurts were well furnished and plenty of candles provided
We were met by Anthony and Ell Jay, who were very welcoming and never far away if you needed any help with anything
At night the wind did come through the yurt and the temperature did definitely drop, even with the log burner well stoked, but we were sleeping under canvas in April so to be expected. Just a word of note, extra baskets of logs are chargeable and if the temperature drops the log burner is essential to keep the Yurt warm, in the summer presumably less so.
The kids didn't want to come home, so that's recommendation enough
Best bits - Location, Location, Location
Worst bits - Wind blew 'through' the Yurt at night (weather can't be helped but canvas is not attached to bottom of Yurt so wind gets through)
Highly recommended, provided you remember you're glamping and not staying in a 5 star hotel
