What we think

"Love this place. New shower block is fabulous – very Scandi sauna chic. The barn provides everything you need if the weather is less than ideal. Plenty of firewood and warm, cosy yurts keep you comfy. The field is great for the kids to play and explore safely."

The kids say...

"We loved fire building and eating the marshmallows that had been left for us on arrival and having lots of space to run around."

Accessibility

There is level access from the parking area to the main yurt field which is flat. There is a slight step and threshold on entering each of the yurts. The living and dining area of the communal barn is accessible and one of the communal bathrooms has a wide enough door for wheelchair access. There are steps into the compost toilets so these are not accessible for those in wheelchairs.
