We stayed in the shepherd's hut at South Town for 3 nights, initially had only booked for 2 but circumstances changed and we were able to extend. Absolutely delightful spot (great views, can do walks from the site), with welcoming and friendly hosts. The hut itself is very spacious and the separate kitchen to cook in. Would definitely recommend a stay, affordable as well.

Absolutely loved this campsite. It's quiet, well-maintained, friendly owners, lovely on-site walk, warm shower and great compost loos, well-spaced pitches among beautiful wild grass meadows, and wonderful views of surrounding countryside. We don't normally return to places we've stayed before but I can definitely see us coming back in the future.
