Black Pig Retreats is truly a real find. We had never 'glamped' before and we were blown away by our amazing safari tent. Set up in the most beautiful meadow, surrounded by glorious countryside we really felt we were in a little corner of Heaven. We simply had the BEST holiday, hosted by the very lovely and endlessly accommodating Carolyn. Can't recommend this property enough. Superb.
