But we needn’t have fretted. While the tent did get cold during the night the bed was sooooo cosy and warm that it wasn’t a problem. In fact we got too hot at one point! As well as being warm, the bed was extremely comfortable. The campsite was quiet, peaceful and full of wildlife. Would highly recommend.” – Kelly, August 2020
