We went to the Secret Valley for a hen weekend. Good facilities overall, but our group was spread out over the site. (This was more to do with our late booking than the organisation/management). Very off the beaten track in pretty countryside. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and assisted us with organising activities and settling us in. We stayed in the tipi, one yurt and 2 wigwams. I would say that the tipi and yurts were the prettiest of the accommodation on site. Plenty of communal areas including kitchen/dining areas (inside and outside seating), plus lots of toilets and showers. Provision of a shower or two over by the yurts would be a good addition to the site. The only negative point was that the local pub, Tynte Arms (which is recommended on the Secret Valley website) has the rudest landlord I have seen/spoken to for some time. Do not go to that pub when you visit. Black Rock outdoors was a great company and we enjoyed our mountain biking experience on the Quantock Hills immensely.
