The pull down double bed which is uniquely concealed behind a false wall sits at one end of the hut beneath a pretty window on a warm summer s evening why not lie back in bed with the stable door open and enjoy a night of gazing up at the stars or curl up and watch TV or a DVD with the wood burner crackling. Beneath the bed there is plenty of storage for your stay. Located at the other end of the hut is the en-suite shower and WC. This property takes glamping to another level.
