I booked the quarry hut on a bit of a whim as a fossil enthusiast, but glamping novice. I dragged my other half and 10 year old son along who, to their credit, always get into the fossiling with me. The quarry was absolutely amazing, and did not disappoint. We collected around 20 trilobite specimens including fragments and some whole ones. Take a fossil hammer to split the rocks, goggles and prepare to get mucky. It is immensely relaxing and compelling. Emma, the owner (and Lyndon who we met briefly) were fabulous hosts. Warm, friendly and extremely communicative and helpful - exactly what you want. The scenery is breathtaking; it is hard to describe the peace, tranquillity and feelings of space and solitude: you just have to go there. Meanwhile, there is a Tesco Extra 10 minutes away beyond the long gravel track and a couple of main roads - perfect!
The 'hut' itself is also beautiful. Very well equipped, comfortable and immaculate with ingenious uses of space. Glamping at its best. We were lucky with the weather, so used the fire pit to toast marshmallows, the hammock to laze in and the outdoor table to eat at, while conversing with the sheep and watching the red kites. I didn't want to leave. See you again one day!
