The Owner Says

Each pitch is vast with the feature being our stunning six-metre Yurts. Each Yurt is pitched on a sturdy wooden deck and inside have a king size bed with memory foam mattress along with two single futons for the younger campers. All bedding and linen is included.

Alongside the Yurts each pitch has its own kitchen unit. These have all that you need to produce everything from a simple cuppa to a full blown roast dinner. Gas hob, grill and oven, kettle, pots and pans, crockery and cutlery – it's all provided. To keep things cool and fresh we provide a large Coolbox. Ice blocks are supplied in the freezers and can be replaced whenever required. Attached to the side of the kitchen units is a canvas canopy so that the outside picnic table and seating is undercover. Hopefully this will provide you with shade during your stay rather than cover from any wet stuff.

Also provided within each pitch is a firepit and cooking frame. This can be used to either provide a magical end to an evening with a campfire or a full on campfire cooking station. For the more adventurous we have a Dutch oven set that can be used for curries, stews or even breads and puddings. A quantity of logs are provided in a log store next to the firepit. These should be sufficient to see you through your stay.

To complete the experience there are a number of hammocks dotted around site along with dens and rope swings for the kids.

Wifi is available on site and we have charging points for phones, laptops etc...

All Yurts comfortably house 2 Adults and 2 Children however there is the option to add a further child for a small extra charge. Please contact us if you require further details.
