Our luxury Bunkhouses still have shared bedrooms, mostly with bunkbeds but they all have high-quality mattresses, and will provide bed linen and in some cases even towels.
Many of our luxury bunkhouses and camping barns have been purpose-built meaning the architect and owners have been able to design everything a group needs.
Most Luxury camping barns have en suite facilities but even where washing facilities are shared these are usually modern bathrooms with good quality hot showers and a few extras to make your stay that little bit special.
It is the communal area where most of these bunkhouses and camping barns put in extra comfort. They have well-decorated, modern, and well-equipped kitchens, large dining areas, and sumptuous soft furnishings in the sitting room.
