Great stay!
Lovely stay in the tree lodge, would highly recommend! Can get pretty dark though so advise to take torches for walking and also in the lodge. Plenty of candles and tea lights provided by the venue though, and the complementary s’mores kit was great!

A hidden gem!
Fantastic, large yurt with a stove and outdoor toilet which was very good. The staff were excellent and so friendly, showers allocated to each group so we had our own! Logs were free and was able to have as much as we liked! Lovely countryside with walk to local pub with a fire... excellent value for money!

Lovely one night stay to get away from it all. It would have been nice to have some added luxuries, such as tea and milk and towels you didn’t need to rent.
