I visited the Caalm Camp as part of a hen weekend and despite my initial worries it was a fab place to stay. Lovely comfy/ warm yurts with amazing views and good facilities. Mark was a great host particularly when showing us all how to use the pizza oven. Fab environment and would wholeheartedly recommend to all 😀

In the middle of our 3rd visit to Caalm Camp. Five stars almost doesn't feel enough! Glamping at its very best, the yurts are absolutely stunning, spacious and very well equipped, the kitchen facilities and personal fridge /freezer make it a home from home. The immaculate wet room allocated to each yurt really perfects the glamping experience. Mark has thought...

Fantastic weekend away in this very peaceful Yurt Camp. Lovely area, quiet and tranquil and peaceful. The Yurts were amazing and like a Tardis!!! Loved the firepit for roasting marshmallows on and sitting around in the evening. We stayed in Bluebell which was down the far end of the camp and it felt very private, and with the children's play...

Just returned from our third getaway at Caalm Camp. We never return to the same holiday home normally but this place is so special. The site and facilities are so well thought out, we really did have everything we could want for a happy holiday. Our children always enjoy staying in the yurts too, there is always something to occupy...

Fantastic weekend in wonderful Yurt! Peaceful, quiet, fab wood burner, comfortable bed, impressive facilities (bed linen, big towels, private wet room, free wood to burn) - a truly memorable get-away. Would love to go back & maybe in the summer? Beautiful area of the country, very relaxed atmosphere & Mark friendly & helpful. Perfect weekend!

I booked exclusive use of Caalm camp with some excitement and trepidation to share my 28 friends on my birthday. Our stay more than exceeded my expectations. Mark couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful with my many requirements and requests. He even stayed out in the cold cooking us all pizzas in the wood fired oven which were delicious!...

We stayed for a couple of nights in August and had a fantastic time. It was a real escape and we did not want to leave. This was a great alternative to camping as we ate outside, slept under the stars and woke to views of countryside and cows BUT we had the luxury of our own shower room with...

Our visit in July was our first stay in a yurt and we loved it. The whole place is so peaceful and relaxing, with a lovely comfy bed, and great private bathroom and use of a perfectly equipped kitchen. In fact, everything we needed. We liked it so much, we have just returned for another 4 nights last week. I...

If you don't like tents but what to try back to basics camping with a comfy classy bed and great facilities this is for you.
