The Cabin on the Lake is a unique and wonderful place to stay. A soak in the outdoor hot tub adds to the experience - letting you feel at one with nature. The cabin sits on the banks of a small lake on Gwalia Farm. Sit out on the decking with a cool beverage from the powerless fridge and watch the wildlife pass you by. Take a trip in a canoe and paddle silently around the island or even stop off for a picnic. Rest in your own, private wood-fired hot tub at the edge of the lake, then dip in the cool waters if you are feeling hardy.

The kitchen is under a long overhanging roof so you can cook in the outdoors whilst always staying dry. There is a wood burning stove inside and plentiful supply of firewood. A sumptuous double bed has soft, warm down duvet and Egyptian cotton sheets - blankets and hot water bottles at the ready if you want too.

There is an outside table, chairs and firepit, plus a fold down table and stools for inside dining if necessary.

Make use of the solar shower and unique, private Swedish style composting toilet (with a view!) A traditional shower is available in the farmhouse (by arrangement as water is heated by solar/wood).

Prices in low season start at £250 for 2 nights midweek and from £325 for 2 nights on the weekend.

Perfect Tranquil Escape

16th-18th May 2014. The Cabin on the Lake is Gold standard Glamping. The care and attention to detail put in to developing this hideaway by Amy and Dee is evident on arrival, with the tasty homemade treats and warm welcome. The location is private and tranquil, with the choice of a lake to swim in/canoe on or a more relaxing log-fired hot-tub. Sympathetic to the surroundings, eco-friendly shower and toilet facilities balance with the lovely log-burner to take off the evening chill. Pretty much everything you need is provided. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending the Cabin on the Lake and hope to revisit soon. Thank you Dee and Amy for a wonderful weekend.
