I wasn't going to leave a negative review of our last experience here, however since reading the review mentioning an 'irrational woman' I feel I must. This was our third visit to this site since August this year and have previously had two lovely short breaks. The site and the accommodations available are all excellent. Unfortunately this time was a...

Hello and thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay in Humble Bee Farm's Yurts. Thank you for your comments about the log burner etc with the yurts.

Arranged by my wonderful wife for my 40th birthday, we took our family, including our cocker spaniel for two nights in one of their cottages. Underfloor heating, very clean and a fantastic hot tub. On the mornings our children loved going to check for freshly laid eggs, successfully collecting a few for our breakfast. All in all, a perfect, relaxing...

Recently vistited with my partner and stayed in the 'Sunflower Meadows' Bell Tent. The site is fantastic, loved the animals roaming around (especially the goat and the pigs!). Facilities in the tent were second to none, they had really thought of everything. We loved cooking our food on the BBQ and gas stove. Great atmosphere, would highly recommend.
