General

The Woodsman is so sweet you will simply want to stay forever. Set on a sustainable site, surrounded by wildflowers and rolling countryside is where your bespoke getaway awaits. With a picturesque outdoor space and a quaint and cosy interior, this quirky cabin promises one thing, a restorative retreat to nature.

The cabin has a lovely open plan living space. There's a snug wood-burner, perfect for cosying up by after a long winter's walk and delicious pub lunch. Sink into the gorgeous armchairs, set up a board game and enjoy an afternoon in front of the fire. The sumptuous double bed is to the rear of the cabin and ensures a serene night's sleep. The ensuite shower room can be found just behind the bedroom area and is the perfect space to freshen up after a day of adventures. The lovely kitchen has everything you need to prepare delicious holiday meals for you and your loved one. Including a double electric hob, toaster, kettle and fridge, as well as an amazing traditional Swiss Raclette Grill. Why not purchase some local cheeses from a farm shop and treat yourself to an indulgent feast, or head into the kitchen garden and help yourself to fruit, vegetables, and herbs and prepare a sensational seasonal dinner? There's also a small oven compartment within the wood-burner, perfect for cooking jacket potatoes. Once dinner is ready, you have the choice of dining inside at the handcrafted table or on a balmy summers eve why not head outside and embrace alfresco living.

As you step out to your private little garden space, the luxuries continue. The wood-fired hot tub is just wonderful for soaking away your worries and there's also a quirky barbecue to use, great for cooking in nature. Once you're finished cooking, continue to stoke the fire, snuggle in, and enjoy sharing special stories as you gaze up to the star lit sky.
