You will see from my reviews that I can overdo the hyperbole. This time though, any enthusiasm is totally justified. I give myself free rein...
This is, without doubt, the best camping experience ever. There are basic levels of requirements and many campsites we have stayed at leave you with a sense that they have provided a patch of grass, and a loo and a shower and what more do you want. Well, having stayed at Bluebell pitch, I discover that my needs are much more complex. I now require the view of a rippling sea of grass stretching as far as the eye can see and trees and foxgloves and glimpses of horses in the next field. I will now need a firepit, with as many logs as we need, all neatly stacked and not forgetting the wooden sleeper seats perfectly placed to reach forward and roast marshmallows. I particularly will not shower or ablute unless the facilities are exactly the same. Imagine a proper sink, shower and loo and add a box of Country Life magazines and a towel and posh shower gel and you are getting the picture. There are cutesy hooks and wooden bunting and a roof light so you can see the trees lit up at night.
I went in search of a freezer and found a utilty room stocked with iron, washing machine and our own freezer shelf. Even more impressive was the range of helpful food items such as Magnums in the freezer, ready meals, tins of yummy sauces, fancy chocolate, and even a slate with spice selections to help yourself to. If you had a dog there was a pile of blankets and toys and baskets to borrow. Tiny wellies were there if your tot needed a pair. Add in some cozy sofas, a big pile of board games, dvds and books and there is nothing more you could wish for.
Back to our site. There is even a mess tent already set up for each pitch. It is fully equipped with recycling bins, benches and a big table, storage area and a lantern, with candles. Genius! This proved invaluable with the inevitable rain moment and was so nice to be able to spread out a bit.
Sorry this is so lengthy, but I am so struck with how lovely this experience was and how generously we were treated. There was an abundance of thought and effort and it really made for an unforgettable experience. I wonder how I will feel when I next encounter a meat n 2 veg campsite? I now only want gourmet camping!
