    Staying with us, you'll have full use of everything in the house but you'll have private space staying in our awesome Eriba caravan that sleeps 2 adults very comfortably. It has heating and cooking facilities as well as a toilet. We only ask that you look after it well as we're rather fond of it. Groups of two/couples would find the caravan ideal.
