Renovated rustic woodland cabin, 1.5 miles south of Biggar surrounded by a private woodland. Views to Coulter Fell and Tinto, wood burning stove/cooker, outdoor (heat your own water) camping shower, outdoor compost loo, 15 min walk to the River Clyde, Edinburgh 40mins by car
* This is not Glamping! ;-)
A renovated wooden horse stable with mezzanine bed up a ladder, wood-burning stove (pots/pans/utensils etc provided), kitchen sink with fresh drinking water and DIY outdoor (hot!) camping shower. This is simple, rustic living for those who want to be closer to nature, surrounded by trees and birdsong. The site is not completely free of road noise (see satellite image) but with a light wind through leafy trees it's certainly well masked.
Parking space next to main house then a 3 minute walk into the wood to the cabin. The ground can be muddy so boots are advised!
Interaction with guests
Sometimes we can greet guests, sometimes we never actually interact other than by email. We aim to leave people in peace. There is usually someone around at the nearby house in an emergency otherwise I'm available on my phone anytime.
Other things to note
This is a small 20 acre private woodland, one of the last few in this valley, in which we ask guests to be peaceful and respect the wildlife it supports. We request that guests stick to paths to and from the cabin and up to the viewpoint along the periphery of the woodland to allow any ground nesting birds or deer to remain undisturbed.
We hate too many rules but these are essential! You may think these are a given but some haven't!
No Outdoor Footwear worn inside The Bothy
No Candles on the Stove or up on the Mezzanine!
Candles to be used only in holders provided!
This is a space for peace, creativity, contemplation and switching off from the stresses of our busy, modern world. Stoke up the fire and put the kettle on!
