Loved the campsite - one of the best we've been to. Loved the walks and all the unusual accommodation (Kannidood was incredible)! Super special time!!! Would have been good if staff had remembered to restock toilet paper in bathroom and also remembered to give us the info file on arrival, but they were all SO friendly that all is forgiven!
