We provide a simple breakfast greeting hamper with our eggs, bread, our marmalade, butter, milk and cereal. Tea and coffee is provided, and some seasonal veg may be available. Lighting is 12 volt and being off grid there is no 240v available in the cabin. A good hot shower cubicle is available in all but freezing periods, when there is lots of hot water for indoor washing instead . You will need to bring outdoor boots or wellies, indoor slippers (flip flops even better) and your own towels and bathrobe. We provide a freshly made bed and enough wood to keep the Rayburn going, additional wood for the fire pit / BBQ will need to be purchased.
There are simple instructions in house that must be followed for safety reasons. No smoking in the hut. On departure please leave the hut clean and tidy.
