It was an absolute joy staying here...tranquil with amazing views. We stayed in the 10 sleeper and it had everything our family needed.

We stayed in the Gypsey caravan and it was much more private then the Chapel so we were glad that the Chapel was booked, it is much more in the middle of campers and people.
