  • "This was our first time staying at Applewood’s - stayed within the Cowslip shepherd hut."

    It was such a lovely experience - spacious, clean, comfortable and all the amenities we as a family of 4 required. The members of staff we met were friendly and welcoming, and the campsite it self looked clean and well maintained. Will definitely be visiting again!

  • "Lovely shepherds hut."

    Very clean and well laid out. Loved the privacy of the decking area. Great to hear the animals from the zoo next door.

  • "I was so impressed by the amazing staff."

    I was met by Karen the lovely manager who explained everything to me. The Cowslip hut really did exceed my expectations. It was so clean it sparkled! I was so warm and cozy even though the weather was not great. It was so wonderful being so close to the animals. You get a discount on re-entry an amazing bonus for animal lovers is hearing them at night. It was like being back in Africa! I found the site very peaceful as I was out of season. I wish I could have stayed longer!!!! Thank you so much
