    Due to COVID 19 we encourage your own van or accommodation. However, we can offer a rustic "hide away" log cabin. It is a place of solitude set by the pond and by a small waterfall. Nite sounds of owls, frogs and crickets etc can be expected! If you have your own sleeping accommodation in a van, camper or motorhome there is lots of room for you to park. There is a bathroom, separate from the main living area you may need to share with any others You will each be responsible for insuring it is clean and safe for all after use.

    We will provide your food , but you may need to do some of your own food preparation. We will hope to have some communal outdoor meals. We will work this out with each individual.
