Great location and concept

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Dec 2019via mobile
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and loved the concept. The breakfasts provided were a real surprise and a delight. The facilities were great and we enjoyed being off the grid and relying on the simple pleasures of life like cooking on a bbq, using a chilli bin to keep things cold (you need to take your own), taking an outdoor bath and relying on solar lighting. The bathroom was a lovely addition with gas hot water and a flush toilet (important for my wife!). The owners had others looking after the place when we stayed and they lacked the attention to detail that we have experienced in similar concepts elsewhere. It was largely put right but a simple checklist would have ensured we had what we needed from day 1. It has it all - it just needs to be delivered consistently well. Highly recommend.

    We only spent one night here, but it was pure magic. From the donkey ride to the welcome box of goodies to the Harry Potter like endlessly sprawling interior of our glamping tent, this place made for some incredible family memories. All the comforts of a hotel with a connection to the outdoors that you only get from camping. Plus, the stars. Wow the stars. Definitely don’t miss this place.

    This place has all the right things to make you enjoy a romantic getaway surrounded by nature and while provided with all the basics, you can relax and go back in time when life was simpler. It was definitely an unforgettable experience for both of us. Totally recommended!

    The unique setting on the farm and close to bush, made it quite special. Our teenage grandchildren, thought it was “very cool”. Having access to the house for our overseas family was an added bonus, as we were able to use the large comfortable lounge areas in the evenings. Our hosts made us all feel very welcome and Sasha cooked an amazing dinner to start our weekend on a high note. The tents had comfortable bedding and the larger one, a cosy lounge area. We didn't need the kitchen facilities, but they would have been more than adequate, if required

    Room tip: If you are not keen on the glamping idea the bed and breakfast rooms at the house are excellent
