Very relaxing, amazing space.
My husband booked this as a surprise weekend at short notice. The email communication was brilliant, quick, easy, very friendly and relaxed. He booked the hobbit style homes for us and our 2 small children, designed for 2 but worked fir 4. The only complaint was that we needed a flat space for our 1 year old to walk on as she kept falling over the stones, and a bigger table but it is designed for 2 people so it's our fault really, every other space had decking which looked perfect. I loved out hobbit hole, the private bathroom was brilliant and so close and just lovely to use. The sleeping space had a massive very comfy bed and nice living space. Our little boy loved being able to look out of the ceiling windows whilst lying in bed. The cooking facilities are great fun and you soon learn how to light a fire. We loved that everything was provided and the whole site is really well thought out. The lady who was running it was lovely and friendly and made the stay even better. The best part of the weekend was making the pizzas in the wood fired oven, though that's not to say that the zip lines and swings weren't any good but pizza is all of our favourite food. We will be going back in the future to try the domes!
Very cool - very relaxed!
This certainly is a cool camp site - or glamp site! It is like nothing I have ever seen before. The site is quite small but the domes (think mini eden project) are dotted about, each with their area of privacy. There is nothing cute or kitch here (no bunting in site), but astro turf for carpet, giant bean bags, white bedding and colour-changing lamps to light up your dome at night! We had a 'simple dome' and a 'double-dome' (two smaller domes with a bathroom inbetween). The 'simple dome' was by far the best design though, with a roomy double bed and 2 singles and plenty of space for relaxing and a very efficient wood-burning stove for heating. The double dome had a somewhat temperamental stove in the larger part (containing 3 single beds) and an electric heater in the smaller dome (containing a very large double bed - the love nest!) and never really got as toasty warm as the simple dome. However, the experience of being in 'love nest' bed and looking up at the stars at night through the clear roof was quite something (although the pay-off was a very early awakening with the sun shining through - so take an eye shade if you want to sleep in beyond sunrise!). Both domes had bathrooms with baths (although others have showers), and we soon got used to lighting the stove in the bathroom to generate the hot water. Lighting fires and chopping wood are a big part of your stay here in fact as the cooking is done on outdoor wood-burning stoves as well. One of the highlights of our stay was baking pizza in the pizza oven - a great communal experience - and then baking bread in the oven in the morning! The children absolutely loved the freedom of the place - the giant swings, the zip wires and the forest right outside the camp site, and had loads of great old fashioned fun building camps and getting to know the other children on the site.
