  • "Loved our week."

    Caravan ideal, grounds bigger than expected. Views are stunning. Had a tasty Chinese meal delivered to the van too. Shower lovely and strong, bed really comfy. Hugely generous amount of wood available for fireplace at no extra cost, also BBQ coals provided at no extra cost. Also cans of coke, bottle of cava and 4 pints of milk waiting for us in the fridge. Really great value for money. The owners are lovely too, we will most likely be back and have already recommended to others.
