Kingfisher Camp is a romantic hideaway set in the dimple of a hillside of a small farm in the foothills of the Black Mountains.
The hut is available for anyone who is content to cuddle up by candlelight and light the woodburning stove to get cosy.
It's a tin hut, warm and cosy, tucked away from the world with stunning views. Previous guests have described it as the loveliest wendy house ever. It will accomodate a couple - or two good friends.
The hut is self catering and completely private - nobody can see you. There is no electricity so by evening you are bathed in candlelight. We do encourage people to bring their own tilly lamps or other battery powered torches or lamps.
There is a woodburning stove with oven attached, a two ring gas hob for cooking, a butler's sink and all the utensils and crockery you need. The compost loo is attached with a separate entrance. While the weather is mild you have access to a gas powered shower but this will not be available if there is risk of frost. We provide you with one small load of firewood to keep you warm on the first night but after that we sell it by the wheelbarrow-load. Also we do ask that if you are burning wood or charcoal on the firepit outside that you bring some for that purpose. You can buy sacks down at the shop, Hopes of Longtown.
Общение с гостями
We always make an effort to greet the guests but if we are not here when you arrive you are welcome to head down to the hut yourselves and we will check that you have everything you need later. And our guests are welcome to knock on the farmhouse door if you need anything.
Другие важные подробности
Since the photos were taken the hut has been surrounded by chestnut paling fencing which helps to keep the sheep out and is really rather lovely - helping with the feeling of privacy and giving pets a safe "garden" area to explore.
We ask that guests are vigilant with gates, keeping them closed at all times, and if you do bring a dog we ask that it is kept under control and poops are scooped. We also request that you come with a pair of wellies, as the route down to the hut can be wet and muddy in the winter, and that you remove boots before going into the hut, and wipe off dog feet. We ask that dogs are not allowed onto the bed. And also that the hut is left as far as possible in a similar condition to that in which it was found. The hut is no smoking but there is plenty of fresh air in which to smoke! We provide bedding but do ask that you bring your own towels.
