ROMANTIC GARDEN RETREAT JUST FOR TWO
If you have ever felt like getting away from it all in your own enchanted garden, then you’re going to love Blue Bell
Blue Bell is our oh so cosy camp-van, snuggled in a nook of half an acre. She is surrounded by rustling trees, pretty bushes & beautiful country & sea views, complete with sheep dotted on the hillside & some rather interesting planting!
In this enchanted garden, there are little paths scattered about to explore, you might even come across the little pond & if you are very lucky my ducks will be bobbing about on it, which is a real delight to see. Feel free to help yourself to their eggs for your breakfast.
You don`t have to be camp to enjoy Blue Bell, however, you do have to enjoy camping! Birdsong is a ideal base for exploration with Alnwick Castle & Gardens under 10 mins away & Bamburgh Castle, Craster, Holy Island & Berwick all within easy reach.
