I had the fab chance to visit Calwich under Canvas whilst I was travelling around the Midlands to film for our Summer competition video.

Sarah and Jason were so helpful and friendly from the moment we arrived, and the site itself was so peaceful and homely. The yurt was cosy yet modern, and the log burner and candles added to the atmosphere.

We enjoyed the hot tub and the sauna underneath the stars, and loved cooking our yummy breakfast hamper in the morning. Thanks for my veggie sausages Sarah!
