Guy & Sarah

Amazingly beautiful. The cabin is so beautifully made and a joy to stay in, it wonderfully snug and warm. The situation is tranquil, it was just awesome. Thanks for being so welcoming and for the delicious breakfast hamper. It’s a very special place.

Chris & Karen

Came to escape the world and it worked perfectly. Amazing little retreat, even better than it looks online !. Lovely walks in the woods by the river and lots of amazing birds including dippers, wagtails, tree-creepers, herons and a woodpecker.

Beth & Anthony

A relaxing and peaceful weekend off-grid !. Fully appreciate the quality of the design, craftsmanship and attention to detail. Spent many hours sat on the deck in the sunshine. Great walks along the river and up to the castle with a stop halfway for a pub lunch.

Nick & Charlotte

Thank you for building such a wonderful cabin for us all to enjoy. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is sublime, and every moment spent inside or on the decking has been a pleasure. And then there’s the location, absolutely idyllic !. We’ve loved being away from it all, and enjoyed spending time with the birds, deer and owls.

John & Rosie

“You are a champion cabin creator. You have made a wonderful space. So peaceful and cosy. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is unswerving. It’s all so beautiful. But the beautiful design is in no way indulgent, it’s always with the guest’s comfort in mind and it was such a lovely space to hang out in”.

Tom Dixon

“The cabin made our hearts melt as soon as we entered! Instant relaxation. Everything in the cabin was beautifully done, well thought out and finely executed. Each time we opened a drawer we were left thinking ‘that’s a great idea’. If you manage to pull yourself out of the exceptionally comfortable bed, the walks surrounding the cabin are amazing, even in the middle of winter”.

Michael and Liv

“A really special, magical weekend away. The cabin was amazingly well-designed and built, with wonderful attention to detail. The location was perfect, it felt like it was i the middle of nowhere – lots of birds, rabbits and deer to be seen while peeking from the cabin windows . Very close to footpaths along the river, we would love to come back in the summer as it looked perfect for wild swimming”.


“It was a joy to stay in your cabin and absorb such true craftsmanship, you should be very proud of creating such a  classy, comfortable and cosy little haven – you have thought of everything. The bed itself was luxurious!  We had a welcome basket of food on arrival, which included tasty homemade bread.   The surroundings were truly wonderful, really taking you away from modern life and feeling like a holiday.  Amazing to experience the pitch black nights studded with stars and a near full moon.”
