    Jess is a very welcoming host living on site and is happy to help. The facilities are basic but clean and efficient. I can imagine having a private party here.

    Disliked: 

    The site is young and the trees and hedges need maturing to make this a truly secret place.

    We stayed for one night, greeted by the staff who were welcoming and friendly who then showed us where to pitch up and gave us a tour of the site. The site is fairly small and cosy with a small lake ideal to sit at for breakfast in the morning. There are also pubs within walking distance and Chester around a 10 minute drive.

    Simple but well equipped! Seperate to the tents there's a kettle in the kitchen area for a cuppa, plug to recharge your phone, fridge to store a small amount of food to cook on fire pit. Plenty of games to keep kids entertained! Yurt tents very comfy-don't forget your bedding! And you will need to take plates/cups/cutlery and cooking equipment. Toilets very clean. Small site perfect for a couple of peaceful nites away and ideally situated for exploring the area! We loved it!!
