The Owner Says

The bell tent is located in a secluded and tree sheltered spot which benefits from a sought after south west facing lakeside view, with outstanding beauty. It is located away from the main camping field to offer privacy, yet the washroom facilities are no more than 250 meters away. The enclave can be accessed by a small foot bridge over the brook next to the lake. Guests sleep in luxury bedding on a comfy mattress, with only the canvas between them and the night sky above. With the odd plane to be heard towing a glider and a safari hat hanging from the tent pole you'll feel like Africa is just outside the door. If you have children why not bring their own sleeping bags and for a small charge they can use the day bed and or a camp bed and make it a family trip.
