Why not upgrade your stay to one of our deluxe wigwams with a hot tub?

Our wood fired hot tubs are hand crafted using tried and tested natural materials our ancestors have used for centuries.  Wood is sustainable, environmentally friendly material that is truly our most natural resource.  Wood fired hot tubs are very economical to run, very easy to use, maintain and lovely to look at.

Our wooden hot tubs have numerous benefits when it comes to your health.  They can help with ailments as diverse as diabetes, high blood pressure, muscle aches, joint aches or headaches.  A nice hot soak will release endorphins, which make us feel good about ourselves and also act as our body’s painkillers, help strengthen our immune system, help to prevent headaches and help with sleep problems.

After your journey here, or a long day at work, simply fill the tub up on your arrival from the hose beside it, light the wood burner and wait for it to heat up (typically one and a half hours).  Give it a stir with the giant paddle and slip into the relaxing warm water enjoying the lovely natural scent and touch of wood.  Enjoy the beautiful sunsets with a glass of wine in your hand and the steam rising up into the starlit sky.

Inside all of our luxury glamping Cabins is a small kitchen area with a two ring electric hob and a microwave. Outside you have a fire pit with bbq facility.
