Very good place to stay! All it's very clean! Very nice hot shower! In the kitchen you can find a fridge, a microwave, a kettle, a bread toaster and some cookwares. We paid 10 p/p for unpowered zone, that's so good for a night and a hot shower! Really recommended!

Looks like they've had problems with the main structure, an no plans to reopen it so you're left with a dinky little shed with fridge etc, and a tiny little box with a shower and toilet in it. Beautiful views though half the sites pool water in the rain, so if tenting be sure to be on an incline.

Unpowered $10pp

Currently under renovation so only two powered sites available and ten non powered. Kitchen is microwave kettle and toaster and no laundry or oven/stove while the building is being built(?). Toilets and showers are nice and clean and the animals and views are gorgeous!

Lovely place but not straightforward to find - it's quite far back from the main road with no signposts or signs at the campsite itself. Check-in was a bit confusing as it wasn't very obvious whether pitches were already booked or were available. There was no one on site so you have to park up and check the guestbook in the laundry to see whether there are pitches free. You also pay here in an honesty box. Three of the powered sites were reserved for people staying in the unpowered sites (as each powered site had a small shower/toilet unit, but the unpowered had nothing otherwise).
Shower units were nice - they were fairly clean but none had lighting that worked, one had a broken lock (says on the outside of the door to knock first), and one had no hot water.
The light in the laundry room also didn't work (so bring your own lights!!) but there was a clean, working fridge/freezer and a cold-water washer plus a line to dry clothes.
Lots of greenery around the campsite with chickens, alpacas and goats to greet you in the morning.
Overall I would recommend this campsite, it is a sweet little gem but I think it's in need of a little TLC and don't forget to bring a light!!

Good spot, just off the road but pleasantly quiet. Simple but good facilities in a great location for sunsets & sunrise. Good showers & laundry. Look out for the over friendly chickens 😀
