The award winning Deckhouse Cabin looks similar to a cricket pavilion.  It is rustic and slightly quirky - we describe it as half self catering cottage - half glamping.  It's on the other side of the farm from the safari lodges so ideal if you are looking for a bit of privacy as it's not overlooked.

The Deckhouse sleeps two adults or a family of four.  There's a king bed in the main bedroom and a mini bunk room at the other end of the cabin.  The bunk room is small with narrow beds suitable for children and young teenagers - not adults.  Bedlinen and towels are provided.  The view from the main bedroom and living space is over rolling open farmland with grazing sheep and a family of geese.

The kitchen is well equipped with mini-oven/hob, microwave, little retro style fridge-freezer and table with Ercol chairs.  The open plan living space has a wood burning stove with logs provided, comfy sofa, wall mounted TV, books & games, colourful pictures and vintage knick-knacks.   The modern shower room has towels, loo paper and soap etc provided.   The cabin is well insulated and perfectly warm with the fire lit all year round.  There is no WiFi in the cabin but a 4G phone signal can be picked up outside on the farm.

The sunny front veranda looks out over open farmland towards the hills.  There is a private wood fired hot tub available for hire along with a hammock, picnic table and barbecue area close to the cabin. 

The Deckhouse is not suitable for guest dog stays although the farm's two dogs may wander past and say hello.
