Could have been lovely - but the weather was awful
Posted Apr 23, 2015 on Wotif
I was so excited about this visit, but the weather was dreadful. It rained a lot and unfortunately that didn't leave us with much to do. The rooms were very cold and as there is no power in the tents there was no way to heat them. We closed all the flaps on the tent to keep the heat in - but unfortunately that meant that there was virtually no light in the tent. Just a few very weak lights that are attached to the bed. It was gloomy, cold and kind of boring after 24 hours. Pity that we booked two nights.
The restaurant was very nice, but also quite cold as the chimney for the fireplace was blocked so there wasn't much heat being emitted (on the last day we were there they brought in a gas mushroom heater to heat the place up). While the staff were very friendly, they weren't terribly sympathetic to the fact that we'd spent a lot of money to essentially be cold, wet and a little miserable. I know it's not their fault that it rained and we should just harden up... But it was just really disappointing. I had so looked forward to this time away, and the fact that it was too cold to stay in the rooms and read without burying my whole head under the quilt meant it wasn't very pleasant.
I would only go glamping here if the weather was perfect - otherwise you may be disappointed like I was.
