I had to go for a shoulder operation, we tried to change the booking from camping to other type. They could not accommodate us and we are still waiting for our refund

Wonderful setting, amazing views, clean and tidy. Stayed in Oxwagon that was snug and a unique experience. Very well kitted out and definitely worth a return visit.
