Nicest shower I've ever used in a 'camping ground.' oh and the lounge, not big but homey, comfortable with a hot water jug. Lovely spot, lots of trees but 2 dogs if that is a worry. The kitchen is outdoors but has emergency provisions and free range eggs for sale {there is a morning rooster}.

Absolutely stunning! What an awesome place to set up camp for the night. Hot, strong showers, free wifi and such a cool puppy by the name of scout running around. It’s a little slice of paradise tucked away in Kamara. Place to escape the cold, charge all your devices with lovely service to match. Definitely worth the stay! 10/10 would recommend

Beautiful spot - very homely and super super showers (hot, clean and like a real bathroom-no bugs!). Great dog and friendly host.
Outdoor kitchen and lots of table/hammocks. Van space is gravel driveway but as there is a shared grassy area this is fine!
Need cash to pay (can do PayPal but small charge)
Lovely , friendly atmosphere :)

It is more like a cottage than just a camping ground. A beautiful garden, nice places to sit and reax, outside kitchen, the showers and toilettes are new and clean. And Kate is just great; very hospitable and helpful.
Great stay - worth to go there.

Beautiful relaxed setting. Great facilities and friendly host. Perfect first stop on the great western trail. Local pub and shop/cafe (basics) are great too.
