ESCAPES TO NATURE THAT EMPOWER YOU TO BE OFF

Access to screens means we are always "On" keeping our own mental fitness battery low. 

Our aim is to keep your mental fitness battery recharged by refocusing your perspective on your sense of adventure, meaningful relationships and your wellbeing  

If Shuffle Life did batteries, they would last longer than Duracell as they would be switched off more regularly… 

OUR WAY OF LIFE

A unique off-grid experience with no distraction from the outside world to focus on living in the moment

Connect with your raw human instincts of exploring, making fire for food and heat and focusing deeply on your loved ones.

Find an abundance of time to relax, recharge, read and reflect as your mind wanders into the memorising landscape

We had such a fantastic stay!! A few days away from London, completely offline was just what we needed. This was definitely one of the most unique but best experiences. The cabin completely exceeded expectations, there’s everything you need to keep your mind busy without the need to use social media!

This little box on the hillside is just a gem. I would, without a doubt, return. The silence. For most of my three days here, there has been complete and total silence. So much so that I am now used to just the wind, the sound of the eagles, the roar of the fire. It is phenomenally tranquil, and that solitude allows for an absence of distractions that creates immense stillness.

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The quiet location and beautiful views were great. The cabin itself is nicely designed and has been thoughtfully equipped by Tom.

Thoughts on my incredible stay in this little slice of heaven. I wasn’t looking for cozy and homely, I was looking for grand views. And man do these windows do that. They made me feel like I was immersed in stunning landscapes, and any time my mind wandered, I was transported to the hills and the sky.

I very much enjoyed my stay here in the Eco Cabin . It’s the perfect place to rest and relax. I would definitely recommend staying here if you get the chance
