Recently re-decorated the hut is an original Roadman’s Wagon with a king size bed and 2 foldable single bunks above that are perfect for smaller kids. There is a log burner to keep you cosy as well as a twin ring gas hob for cooking. Enjoy sitting outside around a campfire in the evenings while watching the sun set, or if there is a bit of rain then you can seek shelter underneath the tent attached to the hut. 

All cooking equipment and bed linen is provided in the hut but please bring your own towels. Communal shower and toilet facilities are a short walk away.
