We had a brilliant holiday with two young grandchildren. Really back to basics and nature, no tablets and technology lots of playing out in the woods and on the water. Kids enjoyed cooking meals on the campfire and sleeping in the gypsy van. Highly recommend this as a truly memorable holiday. There's also lots to visit around the area only... More
