We stayed in the oak dome which was furnished with a huge double bed and futons which slept three children. The site is certainly environmentally friendly with compost toilets and Rayburn heated showers. Each dome has its own fire pit and there are communal kitchens. Being sociable I enjoyed making breakfast with other families. 100% a dog friendly site and... More

'Cosy Under Canvas' is a set of six geodome tents spread throughout a lovely area of woodland and wetland in the grounds of a farm. We stayed in Ash dome, which is significant as I feel the experience would differ significantly if differently placed. Arrival was pleasant; large wheelbarrows are provided to take luggage from your car to your tent.... More

Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. We are delighted that you had a great time. The beds are high so that luggage can be stored underneath and out the way and as far as I'm aware no one has ever fallen out! The kitchen is slightly further away from Ash dome than the other 4 domes... More

I've done camping and I've done glamping before and in my opinion this place hits the nail on the head. It may come as a bit of shock to some people to use a toilet that doesn't flush but if you enjoy the outdoors it's perfectly normal. (By the way the ginger hand-wash in there is amazing!) We stayed in... More

We loved every second of our stay, we never wanted to leave. Having never glamped, I didn't know what to expect but everything was thought of. The Eco toilets could be tricky in the rain I'm sure, but we were blessed with dry weather. Lovely communal feel to the place, and the fire pits ensured our food was amazing. So... More

The domes were lovely. Comfy beds, lovely blankets and pillows and the easy to light fireplace to make the domes very cosy! Was very nice to light the firepit and chat with family (without phones) and eat marshmallows. Hot tub was easy to light and heated up quickly. Plenty of things to do around the site. Toilets were interesting, but... More
