Barn Owl Cabin is the perfect place to enjoy the serenity of the Valley. Barn Owl has an outdoor kitchen with gas and water supply as well as cooking essentials. The Barn Owl Cabin has a small wood-burning chiminea and a wood-fired hot tub for the exclusive use of the cabin only.

Our cabin sleeps up to 4 – a king-size bed and a mezzanine floor with two single mattresses suitable for up to 2 children or adults with all bedding included.

The cabin has an additional feature of a log-burner whose guard can be removed on choice. A handy hob for heating the kettle is present. There is sufficient room to dine inside on a fold-up table if the need arises. The cabin is decorated with lanterns and fairy lights, adding to its charm.

Barn Owl conveniently has its own private bathroom area that consists of a gas-powered shower, eco pump shower, and a biolan compost toilet. The cabin is a silent retreat where you can sleep peacefully and recharge yourself.

Accompanied by Steve’s Shack, our recreational space, which has 2×2 gas rings and a washing-up area, along with seating, games, a log burner, and plenty of candles, is perfect for those odd rainy evenings.​ We also have a small honesty shop where you will be able to pick up some essentials like bread, milk, and eggs.

Up on the Carriage Way is the cob and stone Beaters Hut (affectionately known as the bus stop, an excellent spot for a bit of stargazing) and hidden away a little further into the woods is the large campfire site, located in the old quarry.

The campfire site is a sheltered spot for getting together, swapping stories of your adventures and roasting a few marshmallows. If you have a little acoustic talent, you may even want to have a little campfire sing-song.
