***Your Snug Hut is 15m2 designed to be moved around the farm on a trailer and is made from 100% recycled materials. It cost £67 (yes sixty seven!) pounds to build, the finish is up cycled, recycled, very basic, rustic and elemental typical of farm buildings or 'chattel' that are made for agricultural seasonal use and animal husbandry such as lambing and milking.
***If spotless is your preference please do not book with us, the huts are pet friendly and NOT suitable for guests with pet allergies or dislike/fear of insects or wild, domestic/farm animals.
*** The green, carbon negative, up cycled style of building and accomodation is NOT FOR EVERYONE . Be certain you look at all the pictures and read ALL descriptions. Rustic means old and shabby, basic means awkward, quirky, off grid facilities like camper toilets and old tin baths that you have to chuck the water out of through the front door. This is not a luxury hotel room designed to look like a Shepherds Hut, this is an authentic, OFF GRID, working Hut be prepared for a lot of rudimentary quirks.
** If you like camping, sunsets, star gazing, wood fires, breathtaking views, making your own Gin and experiencing quirky, exciting, authentic venues true to their origins you will LOVE it.
