Our warm, cosy cabins sleep two adults and two children. They have comfy, big (4ft) bunk beds (beds are spacious for 1, cosy for 2). Our original cabins have in-cabin storage porches where you can hang up bikes and stash your gear. They have separate, allocated kitchens and shower rooms. Our ensuite cabin has a kitchenette and separate lockable bike store.
