Overview

Our handmade & sustainably-minded off-grid wooden cabin blends in with the peaceful and serene scenery. The large glass windows merge you into nature with expansive views of the wild valley and the rustle of the surrounding greenery. Relax under the stars whilst being warmed by a crackling wood fire. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty, the hustle and bustle of life dissipate as you enter Plush with its quintessentially thatched English village pub, beautiful church dating 1848, and the expansive green land bursting with wildlife and cows. That is not all, the organic farm land has been home to historic moments with battles being fought over Nettlecombe Tout Hill Fort in the Iron Ages (1,200-600 BC) or traders being robbed along a complex motorway junction called the Dorset Gap. Enjoy having breakfast outside and waking up to the sounds of nature. Explore nature with walks & cycles through natural beauty. Cook dinner over the wood fire or walk 2 minutes to the local pub. Read or play games whilst being warmed by the sun until sunset. Each cabin includes a food starter pack including coffee, eco-soaps, bed linen, wood fire inside, cooking & culinary equipment, a fire pit, grilling gate, an outdoor picnic table and chairs.

Highlights

Wake up slowly & switch off

Wake up slowly & switch off

Our large window allows you to wake up slowly to views along the valley, the birds tweeting, the deer grazing and the sun filling the cabin. A real excuse to take the slow lane and have breakfast in bed with fresh food from the local farm shop in Piddletrenthide. Read a book, journal your thoughts, meditate or paint. We want to inspire a true disconnect for the best night’s sleep & wake up
