Interesting Things To Do & See

 

Camping by the River

Relax, Rest & Recharge, is our ethos! Switch off from the daily grind in this most tranquil setting, enjoy the sound of birdsong, and watch the stars twinkle at night. This is a natural camping location so we have not installed play areas, or activity spaces. 

We are happy for you to paddleboard or kayak or swim but this is at your own discretion, we don't supply any equipment for this but you can bring your own.
