Who’s The Field BNB greatest for?

The Box BNB review

The Field BNB is certainly greatest for a romantic escape for a pair. It’s so cosy and tranquil so it will be pretty for 2 adults who simply need to chill out for a couple of nights.

It will even be a variety of enjoyable if a bunch or a big household booked all three of the cabins.

There’s at the moment loads of availability so it wouldn’t be laborious to search out a couple of days when you could possibly guide all three on the identical dates.

Every cabin might be booked for two adults and a couple of youngsters however I personally assume it will be just a little bit cramped, notably if it rained and also you couldn’t sit exterior. Nevertheless, I’m a mum of three and I do know that just about all glamping breaks find yourself being cramped if you take the entire household so perhaps you’d simply settle for that it’s a squeeze and hope for good climate!
