The Rising Sun is a gorgeous cabin with stained glass windows, four poster bed, outside dining area and many enchanting pieces that will hold you in delight. Inside is a treasure hunters heaven with many pieces being found in antique shops and auctions available for you to behold. The warmth of the reds and oranges of the cabin will delight your senses, making you feel loved and safe and the warmth of the log burner will keep you toasty even on the coldest of days. There are simple kitchen facilities, 2 gas hobs and a grill for making a light meal. 

Outside you can find a claw-foot bathtub on the deck, perfect for relaxing in whilst listening to the bird song around you. A walkway cleverly links the bathroom to the cabin and to a cute washing up area.
