Tiny Home Experience

Better than glamping!

Stay in a real off-grid Tiny Home and discover what is it like to live simply in comfort. Designed and built by Andy Gill and Katy Fox (occasional writer for Permaculture Magazine) this hut was their permanent residence for over 3 years. Praised by Lloyd Khan on his Shelter Blog and featured in the book “Tiny Homes made from Reclaimed Materials” our unique hut is now tucked away in the top corner of a meadow overlooking our nature reserve and with extensive views down the peaceful wooded valley towards the sunset.

Undisturbed by the rest of the campsite you can almost forget the rest of the world exists – just sit back and lose track of time in this tranquil haven.

Staying in the hut is like living in a wildlife hide; you can just watch the birds just a few feet away whilst you lie in bed or do the washing up!

“A little piece of Heaven. So peaceful and private. The Tiny Home is beautiful and lovingly designed and built by Katy and Andy who lived in it for 3 years. It is very special to stay here; views across the valley to lush green woodland with no signs of human habitation. We spent hours soaking up the tranquil atmosphere, looking at the sky and watching the birds. It was so quiet on the first night I could hear my own heart beat!”
