A wonderful place to stay if you love the outdoors: you’re surrounded by decking, big bi-fold doors open to tree-filled views, a wood-fired hot tub, a portable wood-fired pizza oven, a fire pit and lounge type chairs for reading – wood-fired sauna to come. Watch ducks on the pond and the heron who visits, spot buzzards, kestrels, roe deer, pine marten and brown hares – binoculars provided.
The kitchen has all you need, you’ll find organic body products and lovely handmade soaps so you can have your own mini spa, and the bedroom and bathroom also open onto the decking so you can nip from hot tub to shower (or roll-top bath) and back.
If the weather is foul then you can stay put with Scrabble, Monopoly and a big book collection. The owners are just across the way but with plenty of big trees in between you’ll still feel very private. You’re up a fairly long, winding single track road so bring all you need.
