We found this to be a beautiful, friendly and relaxing experience, only 20 minutes drive from home.
Despite it being 8pm on a windy Friday night, we were nicely settled in our soul tent within 15 minutes of arriving, with nothing too much trouble for this family owned and run business.
Maggie greeted us with a big smile and some information on how the site runs, how to find our way around and the local eateries and cycle routes. Nigel led us right to the door of our soul tent on his golf buggy, and again took the time to introduce us to our home for the next 48 hours. We were to receive intermittent visits throughout our stay from other happy family members; whether simply to check if all was well, to bring us more wood for our wood burning stove (whose warmth would prove invaluable), or our outside cooker, or even to drop off some marshmallow sticks or pretty new lanterns to light our evening cooking sessions! They even brought us some amazing tree stomp campfire seats mid trip!
This is a tranquil, family, couple and pet friendly site where even those more in favour of their home comforts than getting at one with nature can be very happy. The shower and toilet blocks are clean and the showers are even warm. The memory mattresses as provided in the soul tents are really comfy and one of the family is always near by if you have any questions.
Sitting in our soul tent in lantern light by the wood burning stove whilst the wind was whistling outside was just bliss.
I hope to see them again in the near future, and we will certainly be recommending this site.
