“This has to be the most perfect cabin in the world! We are celebrating our ten year wedding anniversary with our two boys aged 5 and 4. Making fires, toasting marshmallows and playing hide and seek is what we all needed!

“‘This is the life’ says Jess (8). 2 adults, 2 sprogs – plenty of room. The wood has been so sensitively managed – enough space while feeling wild. Looking up at the bright blue sky through the leaves – magical.
The girls loved the freedom to roam the woods, Also had mum and brother over for a BBQ, sat at the wonderful picnic table, beautifully level – thanks Charlie, was just dreamy.Can’t wait to come back.”

“We enjoyed riding in the ‘Yurticopter’ and also chasing unicorns over rainbows. And when it was raining frogs we counted six on the way to bathroom and back. And my little brother and dad enjoyed becoming cavemen! Thankyou!”
Hayley, Gary, Emily & Alex

“So lovely to re-connect with nature in such a peaceful place. Well done Lisa and Charles and we wish you every success. Rhoslyn (9) and Dylan (6) made full use of the woods ‘hunting’ for rabbits and going on ‘safari’ (no adults!). Smoked ourselves around the fire pit and then fell into bed to watch the tree tops swaying in the breeze. Ahhh, bliss! We’ll be back.”
Shona, Gavin, Rhoslyn & Dylan
“Was after a little old world feeling to retreat into myself. Thank you so for making it possible on such short notice. Its been empowering actually. Love the yurt especially the fluffy comforter on the bed…..imagined it was a big bear skin J
