English Broad Leaf Woodland

Awash with bluebells in the spring and wild flowers in the summer the seasons transform the wood. Nestled in a glade, deep in a  wood, the cabin lies in a completely private setting amidst elegant silver birch, oak, cherry and chestnut trees. The wood is home to an abundance of wildlife: pheasants, squirrels, muntjack, and red kites the occasional mink. You may be befriended by resident ducks Phillis and Dorris. The wood becomes your own natural haven.


Wood Fired Hot Tub, Pizza Oven & BBQ-Pit

Soak the day and night away in the wood fired hot tub. Our pizza oven cooks great pizzas and is also an  open air oven. The fire pit will not only cook your food perfectly but will keep you warm into the night nestled on the benches.   


Wild Swimming

Join the ducks and frogs for a dip or an adventure in the canoes. Our wild swimming lake has a pontoon and canoes for you to enjoy. The lake is well stocked with fish; bring your rod and enjoy but please catch and return, don’t catch and eat!

Warm floors and a double ended bath with amazing mirror TV help you  soak away the day.  Powerful showers inside and outside always have plenty of piping hot water.

The master suite  has a fabulous en suite wet room.
