Each pre-pitched tipi is located in our designated camping field with plenty of outdoor space for your family to enjoy the location. We provide camp beds & pillows, picnic table, fire pit, solar lights, barbeque, gas stove and camping crockery, so all you need to bring with you is your bedding and food!

Washing facilities are provided onsite in our main courtyard. There is also a large undercover camping shelter just in case of wet weather!

Half a day of outdoor activities for each night stayed is included in the price. The activities to choose from are:

    Loved the instructors they were fantastic and the activities were brilliant.

    Disliked: 

    The tent. The tipi flooring did not cover the ground, as admitted by reception on arrival it was covered in ants, and the ground sheet was so ineffective that the tent had puddles inside it when rained. On complaining the staff moved me to another setting inside which was very kind of them. This was, however, filthy and certainly not worth the money I paid for the accommodation.
