Lovely, relaxing getaway

5 of 5
Perfect place to escape away to for a long weekend. Nice decor and appreciated the mini supplies in the kitchen to get us settled. After a day of walking and exploring in the new forest it was really relaxing to be able to lock ourselves away in the cinema room for a night in.

Lovely caravan, very impressed!

5 of 5
Stayed here for a few nights with my husband and baby girl and we were so impressed. It's a beautiful caravan and I was surprised because it doesn't look like the photos (I have suggested to Anya that she updates them to pics that do it justice) really lovely area. Everything you need is there already even towels which is not usually the case. Good location. We went to Bournemouth beach during our stay as it was only 30 min drive. Highly recommend this caravan and we will be returning!
