Free WiFi in communal areas. In rooms: Roberts digital radio, kettle, tea and coffee, fire wood, Bramley bath products. There’s a projector and DVD player in the barn.
Each of the cabins has bifold doors opening out onto goosebump-inducing views across the landscape. The Damson has the extra allure of an outdoor vintage bath tub – there’s also a hammock above the bed, if you’ve got a mini Smith in tow.
There’s no spa, but the concierge can summon a massage therapist to the secluded treatment room, to get your aching muscles fighting fit for the next ramble.
BYO hairdryer – they’re not provided in the huts.
The Barn is wheelchair accessible, and there’s a ground-floor bedroom in the cottage, too.
All ages are welcome. Travel cots can be added to the Damson, the Ferryman, the Saltbox, Vanellus, Elmley Cottage and Kingshill Farmhouse.
Babies and up
The cabins have handy kitchenettes as well as hanging hammocks, but larger families should go for Elmley Cottage or Kingshill Farmhouse for maximum personal space.
There’s the nature reserve of course, but on a rainy day there’s plenty to keep idle hands busy too – children’s books, board games, colouring books, and DVDs to play on the cinema-style projector screen in the barn.
You can order dishes for kids and grown-ups to your cabin, and a wide range of mealtime kit is available to borrow on request – including highchairs, bibs, beakers and cutlery.
Book a babysitter at least two weeks in advance – it costs £10 an hour, for a minimum of two hours.
No need to pack
A travel cot, baby bedlinen, a changing mat or a potty.
Some paths are shingle or grass, so bring a sturdy, off-road-ready buggy if possible – or prepare to carry your tyke in a sling.
Naturally. All fresh ingredients are seasonal and sourced from local farm shops, and meat is pasture-fed. Food waste and coffee granules are used for compost, there are water butts to collect rainwater and power comes from solar panels. Lodges are built from local and reclaimed wood and they’re well-insulated to reduce heat loss.
