What a little gem, very basic but that was exactly what we were looking for. Incredible views, clean and well looked after. The owners were very friendly and helpful without being overbearing. We walked an hour to a local pub to find out they weren't serving food on a bank holiday weekend!!!! when we returned to the site the owners offered to go and get us some food. Proper hospitality. I'm glad we found this place before it gets too well known, only shared it with 4 other tents, so it was lovely and quiet. My only criticism would be to have a more obvious sign, we drove past it first time. We had a great weekend, thanks, they even gave us some fresh eggs, delicious.
