I could write two pages of praise for this fabulous site. We stayed in a wooden wigwam that has its own private hot tub. The wigwams are great, really warm and comfortable and have the essential equipment such as kettle. toaster and a microwave. This type of wigwam also had a toilet in a room in the corner which is great to save trips in the night. The showerblock is just amazing, underfloor heated and power showers and baths in the ladies. They have thought of everything inc a socket for hair straighteners. The kids play area is fab and the animals are so cute. Alpacas, donkeys, pig, goats and chickens.

Just a 20 min stroll to an amazing part of Hadrians Wall with a cozy country pub halfway.

You must stay here its brill.
