Outside the hut you can relax in the warmth of the bubbling wood burning hot tub whilst taking in the beautiful views around you, with no light pollution. A firepit is the perfect place to enjoy toasting marshmallows whilst taking in the starry night sky. The hut has wifi for when you need to dip back to reality and complimentary electric vehicle charging is available for those who need it. We have five classic cars here at the farm and undercover parking for your car too, if it is required please let us know.

With only one hut, guests have complete privacy and the flexibility of a self-catering break. We welcome well-behaved dogs with no pet-fee and we have a fenced garden for their safety.

To make your stay even more relaxing we offer check-in from 15.00 and check-out at 11.00 – no need to rush here!
