The Owner Says
Our Treetop Cabin is a very special haven. Its magnificent position, perched high on a wooded slope overlooking the valley, means that guests can enjoy spectacular views and complete privacy. From inside, the large windows allow a stunning panorama of the woodland canopy allowing you to enjoy the abundance of nature in total comfort. Relaxing in the hammock on the balcony, the only sound is the chattering of birds and the babbling of the brook far below.
The cabin has been lovingly crafted from wood from the valley. There is a large balcony with chairs and hammock, and a wooden walkway to a luxurious private composting loo. The cabin is furnished with a double bed (with cosy down duvet, pillows and crisp white bedlinen) and a daybed which can comfortably sleep one additional adult or two children. We also provide a small fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, a wind up lantern, and wood for the log burning stove. Outside there is a spring water tap, and in the wooded glade behind the cabin is a seating area where you can enjoy the BBQ which doubles as a fire pit.
Features & FacilitiesYurts feature a king-sized bed (bedding included), a single and double futon, electric bedside lights, wind up lanterns, and a log-burning stove. The cabin has floor to ceiling windows, a comfortable double bed, daybeds and a private composting toilet. Outside, each accommodation has its own spring water tap, BBQ (which doubles as a fire pit), table and stools, while the communal woodland kitchen is fully equipped with two fridges, gas hobs, microwave, toaster, kettle, pots, pans, utensils, cutlery, crockery and complimentary tea, coffee, sugar, cooking oil, condiments, herbs and spices. There is a long trestle table on which to eat or play the games provided. Next to the kitchen is an excellent gas-heated shower (complimentary shower gel, shampoo and conditioner) and the composting toilet is located close to the yurts and kitchen.
