We have never really been a camping family and were a little worried about certain things (mainly the toilet and comfort). However we had a fantastic time.
The River Yurt was in a beautiful position, the children were able to discover the river and its surroundings without us having to worry about where they were. It was lovely for the birds to wake us up in the morning with their song and to see the tree through the skylight. The children loved the welcome pack, especially the hot chocolate, and the fact that the welcome tent sold marshmallows impressed them immensely.
We loved having an open fire and are now hoping to get a log burner installed in our house! It was a pleasure to have no mobile signal and no electricity as it allowed us to interact fully as a family, playing cards and reading.
We were really impressed with the special touches - the star guide, pack of playing cards, extra tealights and large selection of lanterns. When we asked our 3 children (ages ranging from 8 - 12) what they would want added to the experience one of them replied "a yurt in the back garden". The only thing I could think of to add would be a chest of drawers so the clothes mess was a little more manageable (but perhaps that's just my family) and perhaps a camping table to match the camping chairs provided.
We had such a great time and wanted to thank you for providing us with such a wonderful experience. I just asked my 10 year old daughter if she wanted to say anything about her half term holiday and she said "Brilliant!" which I think sums it up for us all!
