Oak, Ash, Willow & Birch are 4 luxurious canvas lodges that sleep 6 people at A Little Bit of Rough, a glamping site set in 20 breathtaking acres of private woodland at Spindleberry Woods. The exact location remains secret until your booking is confirmed adding to the excitement of your escape.

Relax and unwind in your own private lodge, with the sound of wildlife all around you. Light pollution is far away so as you relax on your own large deck area (complete with a BBQ area) with a sundowner in one of 6 wooden reclining chairs and gaze at the stars. Each of the lodges has a lounge area with comfy 3 seater leather sofa and woven poufs and, an extra touch, a chest filled with games, books & bug hunting kits.

At the heart of the lodge is a wood burner which keeps the lodge warm year round and can also be used to cook with. There is a small gas ring, a fully equipped kitchen, complete with double Belfast sink & solar powered fridge/freezer. Kingsize master bedroom, twin bedroom & an unusual double cabin bed are adorned with luxurious bed linens, all seasons duvets and a hot water bottle for extra warmth.

The lodges have their own ensuite bathroom with a roll top bath/shower mixer, washroom and a very private "woowoo" (loo) accessed at the rear of the lodge via its own bridge. Hot water provided on demand and all bath linen available on request. Eco-friendly bath products and basic essentials (loo roll & soap) are provided.
