We stayed at the Owl Barn Cottage and it didn't disappoint! We absolutely loved this place. The cottage itself was clean, tidy and spacious, and had a great view overlooking the countryside and the animals in the foreground. We had our 2 year old toddler with us and he was in his element – he was able to feed the alpacas and the goats, and there was a trampoline and playground that were both in good condition. Also the host Alex was great, we honestly couldn't fault anything about this stay.

Charming and beautiful campsite. We camped four nights here as a family in one of the very spacious and well equipped deluxe pitches. We were unlucky with the weather but the setting, location, and friendly welcome from the hosts more than made up for it. Highly recommended!

Rustic campsite, we had a lovely relaxing time. We walked over to meet the pony's and they were so friendly. We were able to stroke them and it was the highlight of our stay. We also had a look at the alpacas and it was nice to see that they had so much space. Its clear that they really look after and care about the animals here.

The kids loved it. The cottage (stables) was great. Lots of spaces and great choice of games for the kids on rainy days. The fire place was well used and the animal farm great for the kids. They went every morning to feed the animals ( alpaca, goats, pigs). Trampoline, go cart and pool table or table tennis were great to entertain them.

This campsite is absolutely idyllic. The setting on rolling hills surrounded by animals is so calm and peaceful. The owners were friendly, calm and easy going. Making pizzas on the beautiful terrace with the children playing happily on trampolines and equipment is a special memory. It’s low key but really tastefully done – we absolutely loved it and can’t wait to go back already!
