I booked the 'Eilio' camping pod for 5 nights, for myself and my young Son. The pod was clean and adequate for us, though not large enough for family use.

Only one double electric socket is provided, one socket of which, is taken by the convection wall heater. So make sure to bring extension sockets. The pod is completely unfurnished. So it really is camping in a comfortable shed. One ceiling light is provided.

This we found, shines into your eyes as is unshaded. Showers and toilets are cleaned regularly and of a good standard. Negatives are the utility facilities which need urgent investment. There isn't an oven provided. Only a very old microwave oven. This is somewhat of a nuisance on wet days, as you'd like to be able to heat a pizza for your kids. Two elderly top load washing machines machines and one tumble drier are available at extra cost. Again, the ability to do a quick wash in a modern machine and another tumble drier is badly needed to make your stay more comfortable; especially with children. The campsite shop consists of a few items stacked in the reception office. So make sure you have all you need, with you.

Entertainment facilities are sparce; a t.v room and pool table being the highlight and a playground adjacent to the reception area. You are allowed to walk in certain areas of the farm grounds. Don't forget your Wellington boots !

My Son and I enjoyed our stay by and large, though there is a need for some improvement and modernisation. Especially as the peel season rates for this site compare closely to hotels and guest houses in the area.
