We loved everything - the Yurt was lovely, the shower was great, the hot tub was amazing and the lake was wonderful.
Mrs Evanson

It was a relaxing and peaceful holiday. There was some wonderful wild life and you got a great view of the lake from the windows. It was our 25th Wedding anniversary and we had a fantastic time.
Mr White

What an amazing place; the pictures do not do it justice. The glass roof and balcony was a very pleasant surprise. We didn't see another person until we took the boat out and even then it's still very secluded. We are already looking to rebook as it was just pure relaxation.
Ms Thomas

We had a lovely stay, wished we could have stayed longer. The Yurt is very private, and the views over the lake from inside are fantastic. It is a place we would like to return to.
Mr Holmes
