Latest Reviews
I stayed in a canopy tent, which I believe is quite a new addition. There is still some work to be done to make it a comfortable stay. There are no electrical points in the tents, no hot water in the shower in dull weather (solar heated) and there is an Eco friendly "long drop" which takes some getting used to. The kitchen offers all the basic facilities.

Depending on the goal of your stay, the cabins would be a better choice for comfort, although the double bed in the tent was very comfortable. Your car also remains in the parking area, which is quite a distance away. The birding is excellent on the property, which is tranquil and scenic, and the staff helpful and friendly.
