Canvas Lodge with en-suite shower - sleeps 6
The Owner Says
We believe in simplicity, but rest assured you will not be sacrificing luxury when staying in our canvas lodges. At 45m2, our spacious lodges are placed in stunning locations and will meet your need for modern comfort and craving to be close to nature. The Canvas Lodge is suitable for 6 people, 5 adults and 1 child up to 12 years old. Our interior features a fully equipped kitchen with a wood-stove, a living/dining area, outdoor area with BBQ, and three sleeping areas with high-quality mattresses, pillows, bedding and fluffy duvets!
We are all about getting back to the simpler times away from technology and to reconnect with nature and therefore do not have electricity and wi-fi in any of our farms.
Ensuite shower inside your tent
This tent has a wonderful private shower in the tent. You can step into the warm wooden bathroom that is attached to the tent. You no longer have to walk over to the farm and after you have warmed up in front of the fireplace you can step directly into your own private and cosy bathroom. Oil lamps illuminate the bathroom and provide the real Feather Down atmosphere. In the bathroom you will also find the toilet and a sink. The shower is of course heated, you don’t have to heat it up yourself. Enjoy a super cosy private shower!
