The space
The tent sleeps two; it has a Super King bed with the most comfortable of fabrics and a topper for that added luxury touch. The bed overlooks the water - wake up each morning to the most stunning of views. Make your morning cuppa from the kitchenette inside the tent and take it back to bed or out on to the deck.

The kitchenette inside the tent has a jug and large bar fridge. There is an outdoor (enclosed) kitchen with a gas BBQ, gas ring and kitchen sink and The kitchen comes fully equipped with all utensils, whiteware, pots, pans, glasses etc.

The bathroom is situated behind the tent in a seperate outbuilding with a fully functioning toilet. The shower and bath are both outside; both utilise hot water. Enjoy a glass of wine as you overlook the sea in the carved stone bath.

The tent has a 45 inch LED TV with HDMI. There are board games, cards, and books to utilise during those lazy, cosy nights.

We have a double kayak, two single kayaks and two paddle boards that are free to use during your stay. Life jackets are available. Basic fishing equipment can be provided on request.

Arrive by boat or car - we can provide detailed directions. For that added touch of luxury we can arrange for you to arrive by helicopter.

Please enquire if you are wanting to bring a dog - we have protected wildlife on the property who’s safety is our priority.

No smoking inside the tent but outside is ok.
