The other day a prospective guest asked if the cabins were a fun place for children. What a great question! And the answer kind of depends on your definition of fun.
If fun is pools, hot tubs, waterslides, rides, children's entertainment and all-day, all-you-can-eat dining then maybe not. Although most of our cabins have WiFi, so even the most phone-addicted, Netflix-bingeing teen will be only mildly inconvenienced by their remoteness. And we're a short distance from some of the most innovative, unique adrenaline experiences in the UK (giant underground trampolines, anyone?), as well as stunningly Instagrammable scenery and numerous film and TV locations.
But remember when you were a kid yourself, when fun meant simple pleasures like exploring outdoors, playing hide and seek in the woods, ice cream by the sea, fish and chips in the rain, board games and jigsaws, long walks with the dog, staying up late, giggling in bed with a brother or sister, midnight feasts, and just spending time doing simple stuff with adults who didn't have to go to work for a whole week?
Some of our owners bought their cabins when they had young families themselves, and talk about how much their children enjoyed being outside in the fresh air all day in a safe, peaceful, natural place. In today's busy, stressful world there's a lot to be said for that kind of carefree freedom.
Over the years a few of our youngest guests have been kind enough to give us their reviews - I'll leave the last words to them (and Sam, I love the Bump Beds too):
