- Sleeps 6 (max 6 adults, 5 children)
This is basic camping at its' best – no electricity, no wifi, but plenty of space, a proper campfire, and sunsets over the sea.
The Owner Says
Our one acre camping field has only four pitches. These are large cut areas with firepits, and are accessed along mowed paths. The rest of the field is left to grow naturally. This gives you a lovely divide of long grass and wildflowers between pitches.
