One of the best camping trips we’ve had

We’ve just arrived home after a fantastic week staying at Under the Oak, we were welcomed by Lydia and Richard and given a friendly overview of how everything works. We took two teenagers and our Dog who were all over the moon with the site. We stayed in the large 6 person Safari tent which had ample room, a huge area for the dog to run around and us to set up outdoor games. The hot tub was delightful after a days exploring to relax with a glass of wine. The tent had all the comforts of home, a super comfy four poster bed with fairy lights. Fresh sheets and towels and all the amenities you’d need for a great holiday. We cooked meals inside the tent and on the BBQ/fire pit with ease. Evenings were spent playing card games and toasting marshmallows over the fire pit, a beautiful location well thought out for all your needs for a fun family camping trip. Each day we enjoyed different activities all in relatively close proximity to the camp (30/40 minutes by car but many closer options too) gorge scrambling with Adventure Wales shout out to Alex!, horse riding with Ogmore Farm a beautiful beach ride and trek through the dunes, paddle boarding on the RiverTaff – we took our own boards and used the slipway of Channel view centre for a small fee (But they also hire out boards and canoes if needed). We were so fortunate with the weather having 4 day’s of sun but even on rainy days we chilled in the tent with a movie, stoking up the fire and eating on the veranda (4G reception is fine up there- Useful for teenagers). A fantastic week, Under the Oak will not disappoint. Thank you Lydia and Richard
