What guests say
The most relaxed family break we have experienced. Everything is so well organised, from initial booking, additional extras, online welcome information, self check in etc.
The Cedar pod was cosy, warm and comfortable and the kids loved the bunk beds. The showers were amazing and beds are so comfortable, we always had a refreshed nights sleep. Kitchen is really well organised, a spacious fridge and lots of utensils, pots and pans if you fancy cooking. There is ample decking space in front to sit outside and enjoy the views. One night, we spotted our first shooting star! Debbie has a lovely welcome pack organised which is a lovely touch and much enjoyed. We hired the BBQ hut on our last night and it was an amazing, unique experience. The Sycamore pods are in a great location, with so much to do in the vicinity.
Most importantly, Debbie & Mark are local, so warm and welcoming and have lots of personal recommendations of places to visit next May.
An exceptional stay...
