Just returned from fantastic 3 night stay at the Burrow. What a wonderful facility! The Burrow is bright and airy in the living area, lots of space, and the opening roof fantastic in good weather. Bunk beds comfortable behind the canvas but head torch essential as no lighting. Amazing position; large grass area for games, river with beach for paddling, forest for walks and scrambling. Lots of wild life to spot, buzzards, kingfisher, deer. The 21 children were constantly outside being creative and inventive as there is no electricity or mobile signal! Star rating would be higher if there was better toilet facilities. Just one toilet in the Burrow. A toilet block 5 min walk away but these were grubby and dark, emergency lighting came on at 10pm but it got dark 2hrs earlier.

Despite this I recommend the Burrow, bring lots of torches and loo cleaning equipment!

A* helpful, friendly wardens from booking to departure. Lovely people running this site who couldn't have been more welcoming. We had the Burrow as a last minute booking, as needed respite from the rain that was forecast. Perfect for our needs, in a fabulous location perfect for walking, exploring caves, paddling in the river and canoeing. Quiet and private location. We would definitely book again! Thank you!
