Reasons for trip


We were booked two nights at Hundur Organic Retreat, It is reached down a narrow, muddy road with tall stone walls through the trees. It is in a delightful spot surrounded by trees with the mountains towering above. There is a big old farmhouse which is used by staff and administration. Accommodation is in tents scattered around the site. There is a large dining tent and sun dried mud block toilet block with 6 loos (some with showers), 2 shower rooms and 3 outside basins.

There is a well tended vegetable patch with tiny fields surrounded by small earth banks in the centre of the site. The climate is mild and soil good so two crops can be grown a year. Cabbage, cauliflower, onions are used in guest meals.

The tents were surrounded by poplar and willow woodland with small paths and streams. White Aquilegia was growing under the trees and a few purple orchids along the water. There were pink and yellow rose bushes. Sitting areas were scattered round the site.

The tents were very basic with 2 single beds pushed together and a bedside table. The floor was a concrete base with carpet on top. There was a small concrete area outside tent with two plastic chairs. One fairly thin towel was provided each. Tents were not serviced during our stay.

There was a single electric light bulb, which did give reasonable illumination. Electricity was available between 7-11.30pm. Hot water was provided by a wood burning boiler behind shower block in the mornings.

Take a torch for midnight trips to the toilet block. We didn't enjoy these but the stars were amazing.

Meals were good – buffet style with a reasonable choice of dishes and plentiful supply of black tea. Staff were excellent and very attentive.

If there are large groups in, it can get noisy at night if they start celebrating around the site.
