  • “Holiday was lovely and relaxing.”

    A covered area to sit outside would have been nice to enjoy the area if the weather not so good.

Sitting around the fire pit toasting marshmallows as the sun sets is a truly magical time; you could almost expect to see fairies flitting around the enchanting little meadow!

It is a well-insulated, open plan cabin which sleeps up to 4 people, and has solar powered electricity and hot running water.
