“Best campsite we’ve been to. The pitches are private and nice and flat with the water nearby each plot, also there is a washroom with either a shower or bath for each plot. Also the use of a fridge/freezer microwave and table to eat at if it’s cold . Plugs to charge devices and a games room with a mini pool/snooker table and table football. Well sited to get on the a361 to get where you need too. A very warm welcome when we arrived and tour whilst meeting the farm dog peacocks with chick’s and the chickens. Really pleased we found this site and will definitely be coming back” Eliott
“Couldn’t have asked for anything better, especially for the price. The space between pitches is great and we still felt we had a lot of privacy, despite being in a tent. We had our own private washroom, which was really nice. Being able to walk and explore the land around was great as well. Having the animals around was really nice, especially seeing the lambs and the chicks.
Overall, couldn’t have been better. We are so happy we stayed here and we are definitely going to come back as soon as possible.” Amy
