Liked: Nicely designed Pods. Good looking & practical. Easy to convert from day space to sleep space. Very warm & cosy on the cool spring nights we stayed. Also nice and quiet inside. Built-in electricity meant all our gadgets stayed charged and movies could be watched. Excellent mobile reception.

Nice shower block and kitchen facilities – all brand new. Plenty of space around Pods for games and being active. Small wood for camp fire tales. Basically we loved it.

Disliked: Absolutely nothing.

Liked: We stayed here for bank holiday.. What a lovely clean camp site! Owners very accommodating, they even provided a microwave for us to use.
There’s a small kitchen with all the necessities to keep clean after use, the site itself is in a very quite place but not far from city centre…

I will def visit again!!

Disliked: None, it was absolutely fab
