GREEN CREDENTIALS: The huts are off grid and fitted with solar panels and wind turbines as well as having wood fired heating and cooking facilities. Eco-friendly products are provided for cleaning and washing up too. There is no phone signal directly by the huts, although a short walk up the lane will find signal for most networks.

Although the steep walk to and from the huts was a challenge with our luggage it was well worth it for such a peaceful spot. Enjoyed cooking over the fire pit, beds were comfy and children loved it.
