Description

Our Timber framed Log Cabin was shown on Episode one of Channel 4's 'Cabins in the Wild' series and offers a luxurious and quirky back to basics self- catering experience but with all mod cons as well. It has its own wildflower meadow and stunning views over the surrounding countryside.

It was built by a local Timber frame company but over recent years it has been extended and renovated to provide comfortable living for 4/5 people.

The kitchen area offers a gas cooker, fridge, microwave, kettle, crockery and cutlery as well as dining table and chairs. There is the addition of an outside space under cover with a BBQ to allow for inside/outside living.

There is also a shower, toilet and sink on the ground floor.

Sleeping space is provided by 2 double and 1 single sleeping lofts which are accessible by step ladders. The space allows for sleeping but not walking about. This is therefore a provision for the able bodied only. However a sofa bed on the ground floor will assist those less able.

Bedding and towels are provided.

Due to its wood construction, this is a non- smoking space.

Let us know in advance if a cot or high chair is required.

As an additional service a 6M Belltent could be sited close by with a double bed and 2 single chairbeds so sleeping an additional 4. This costs £200 for 2 nights. We also have a smaller 4M Belltent with 2 single beds in for £60 for 2 nights. Alternatively we can add our new Crash Pads which are like American covered wagons on legs not wheels. These have a double mattress in and there are 2 of these.

New for 2018 is our 1960's Vintage Sprite 400 caravan which has a queen sized bed (4 foot), a small dining area, fridge, gas hob, kettle, pots and pans and retro styling. This is £150 for 2 nights and can be added outside if required.

When you arrive you will feel your worries lifting as you turn onto our long drive through the woods and emerge at the end with the iconic Glastonbury Tor in clear view upon the horizon. With the woods now behind you; giving protection from the outside world- far reaching, spectacular, panoramic views meeting the big open sky will welcome you. The fields around have been planted with wildflowers and has been set up as a wildlife sanctuary. So expect to see a whole host of creatures such as: Roe Deer, Foxes, Hares, Rabbits, Badgers, Kestrels, swallows, our Barn owl (hopefully!) and our resident Common Pipistrelle bats who live in the Log cabin to name but a few.

All visitors will have access to the large wildlife pond and wildflower field which allows you to connect with local walks to the village and river. However, due to wildlife and conservation considerations, we are sadly unable to accept dogs.

We are off grid with electricity supplied by solar panels and a diesel generator and as such we ask that visitors consume electricity and use the toilets with consideration. Most equipment provided is powered by gas.

Mobile phones usually get 4G

We are within easy reach of the A303 and A37 as well as close to Castle Cary or Bruton stations. There is a Shell garage and Spa shop as well as a great pub called the Cross Keys in the village.

The area is renowned for Cycle routes as part of the National Cycle Network and we are within easy reach of various National Trust gardens such as Lytes Cary, Barrington Court, Montacute and Stourhead.

Local nature reserves include Westhay, Shapwick Heath, Avalon Marshes, Ham Wall and Bridgwater Bay.

Fishing in the local river Brue is by arrangement with local authorities

Other accessible attractions include Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury Tor, Clarks village in Street as well as RNAS Yeovilton, Haynes Motor museum, Wells Cathedral and local cities such as Bath, Bristol or Exeter for shopping experiences.

The Jurassic coastline is within a 1 ½ hour’s car journey to include Lyme Regis and West Bay.

For the more artistic visitor, the nearby towns of Castle Cary, Bruton and Frome provide various artisan shops, cafes and markets for all tastes to include local foods and arts and crafts. The new world class gallery and multi purpose arts centre of Hauser and Wirth which includes the Roth bar and grill is in Bruton just a few miles away.

We are positive there will be something for everyone within easy reach of the site.
