 A mix of hotel and camping.

There is no having to put up your tent - it's all there for you.

The loges are fully fitted with a bath (inc. Hot water) 4 poster bed and a kitchen.

Placed in the middle of the woods - there is plenty of wild life. Each lodge is spaced out so you almost feel you are on your own until you go to the camp fire!

It's a great place to get away from it without being too far away form the sea side or city (York)

 I loved everything about this campsite. Granted the weather added a great deal of positivity to our stay but I found not one single thing that I didn't absolutely love.

We travelled at the last minute up to Yorkshire and found these guys through Google. I was keen as mustard to get into the woodlands and 'rough it' for a few days. :)

Location is great. Only 9 or 10 miles from York, easy to navigate and sign posted when we needed it to be. I only wish the rest of England was this thoughtful. The trail of daffodils was most helpful. We were told by some of the local volunteers at the site that they were planted a few years ago by both JollyDays and the Daffodil Farm down the road. Honestly, can you get more English than this?

We stayed in both a Superior Bell Tent for a few nights and then upgraded to a Deluxe tent for the last night and honestly, they have their own pluses. They're both fantastic.

Firstly, the bell tents are so spacious. They're new and they're clean and they're quiet. They are assembled on a wooden platform (good for cooling and dryness) and come with their own kitchen/garden shed. We ate dinner on our decking and literally watched the wildlife come up to investigate us. (We ate quietly with no sudden movements!)

The deluxe tent, honestly, I could live in it. It's the complete package! 2 single beds (with an optional sofa double bed) and a Master bedroom, inside bathroom with a large roll-top bath and a flush toilet!, inside kitchen with 4 hob stove and running hot water, fridge and all crockery and cutlery), enough candles to add practical light source to the romantic mood lighting and a couch big enough to cuddle on. The fireplace is set-and-forget, start it up (kindling and wood supplied) and sit down and watch the fire crackle. It's just gorgeous. The dining room and table add a definite home feel to your little haven.

The tent is high enough to almost feel like an flat. And truth be known, I've lived in smaller flats than this tent. The inner draps around the top of the tent and really adds to the luxury look and feel of this place. Not to mention helps to keep the warmth in. From what I could tell, all the tents are individually decorated, albeit with a similar feel. Colour schemes vary but comfort and practicalities don't.

We were lucky enough to meet and eventually had some dinner with the owners. They're great people who have set up a lovely and inviting and absolutely stunning campsite. Full credit to the hard work and foresight of both Christian and Carolyn, and their kids who ran around the camp breathing life into the woodlands. They had a wonderful and hard working team in place and nothing was too much trouble for them. (Linda even gave us a lift into town when it was too wet to walk!)

I'd not hesitate to recommend this site again and I've already booked out 2014 Spring trip.

 We came here for Easter Weekend, Good Friday to Easter Monday and stayed in a top of the range deluxe tent.

Overall we Had a good time and the idea is a great concept but somehow didn't quite live up to our expectations.

Things we loved

1. The site is quiet, with lots natural habitat

2. The adults and the children can get right into campfire building both in the tent with the wood burning stove and around the communal campfire area. Where else would you allow your children to be actively involved in building, maintaining and rekindling fire.

3. Toasting marshmallows was brill, loved this.

Things it lacked or needed improving

1. Given the size of the site, the welcome and 'owner contact' could have been better. On arrival we were given a whistle stop tour of our tent and then never really saw or interacted with anyone from the campsite at all and even on departure no one was around to say goodbye.

2. We accept this is camping and so we don't mind the cold, getting our own fire going and lots of other camping experiences but we would expect to have enough plates, glasses, teaspoons etc to go around and also not to have to wash them all before use, not because of camping dust but clearly because of the previous peoples use still present on them. It felt as though no one really checked the inventory nor did they wash everything after the previous occupants had left.

3. There was a lovely little shop on site selling sweeties and souvenirs but it was closed for the duration of our visit, surprising for a busy weekend full of children. There is an honesty tea shop and we bought marshmallows there but as marshmallow toasting is a lovely evening activity they soon sold out and no one replenished the box, we discovered the sweetie shop door open and a store room in the back and so replenished them ourselves but we think this was an obvious daily task for the owners and helps keep the children busy.

4. I was sadly disappointed by a lack of engagement with the children, not even an Easter Egg hunt on Easter Sunday, very very disappointing, I really thought this would be in place otherwise I would have took my own eggs and made sure it happened. Wouldn't it have been cute for the children to wake up and find the Easter Bunny had left eggs near the tent? Cost to the campsite. Pence. Experience for the children. Unforgettable and magical.

5. Back to the deluxe element of the tent, if a wardrobe is put in the main area for sleeping, why not similar or even drawers with the two single beds, one wardrobe and one drawer is not suitable for 6 people and this is the deluxe element we pay for so as not to live out of bags.

Overall We didn't have a bad time but I don't think we would ever rush back as the luxury lacked luxury and we really didn't feel any bonding or attachment to the campsite at all.
