Weather depending you can eat inside or outside the hut on the decking. 

Outside the hut you can slip into the warmth of your hut tub which doubles up as a plunge pool in summer. Of a day time simply sit and admire the countryside views - keep your eyes open for roe deer grazing near by - and by night make use of the supplied telescope for stargazing.

I have an allergy to goose down, do you supply other bedding?

Yes of course, we can make the bed with an allergy free alternative, just let us know.

What should we bring with us?

Wellies or outdoor boots are useful plus suitable clothes for all weathers. We also recommend a holdall rather than a suitcase as they are easier to store.

I wish to book for a special occasion, can you help?

Yes, let us know and we can add some extras to make it memorable for you.
