The traditional stone cabin, in an old cider orchard, sleeps 2 people comfortably or up to 4 if you don't mind sharing! It has one bedroom, a cosy kitchen/lounge, a sunny dining porch, and a shower room with toilet and hand basin.

It is simply furnished with rustic, hand made furniture, plenty of hooks and shelves for your personal belongings and the kitchen is stocked with cutlery, crockery and basic cooking equipment including a toaster and kettle – no fancy electrical gadgets!

The bedroom, with its stripped pine floor, provides flexible sleeping options with a double futon and 3 bunkbeds. The kitchen/lounge has a belfast sink, combie microwave oven, two ring induction hob and fridge with freezer compartment, a Villager gas heating stove, fold out table, a small sofa and radio – there is no TV, but there is Wi-fi.

From the slate-floored dining porch, with its locally made rustic table and bench seating, glazed oak doors open onto a flagstone patio and enclosed riverside garden which catches the morning sun. The garden has a bistro table & chairs, stone firepit & BBQ. If you fancy an evening sitting around a campfire toasting marshmallows or an outdoor cook-up we can supply local charcoal and logs.

The new solar panels on the roof help provide green electricity and water is drawn from aquafers 180 feet underground with no chlorine or chemical treatment necessary. There are some fantastic on and off road bike rides in the area and if you bring your own bikes (or rent them locally) you are welcome to lock them in our eco-friendly cedar bike store with living sedum roof.

We have developed an Environmental Policy as part of our effort to minimise our impact on the environment and ask our guests to support us in this endeavour including recycling and using energy responsibly. We have lots of ideas for local and car free activities while you are here.
