Hobbit Huts

We are in the process of installing 4 large Cabins.  These are self-catering, glamping units with a shared cooking shelter,with access to the camping wash up area and field toilet blocks.

The Hobbit Houses are sleeping units, but are large enough to provide an indoor area for a base during inclement weather.

Each Hobbit House has a front porch with boot storage, 3 sets of bunks and two single beds in the main house; a two bed leader pod with separate entrance is attached to each house. All beds have a mattress, you supply your own sleeping bag and pillow.

They can be hired individually or in multiples. The Cooking shelter is a shared facility for all four houses and when several groups are using the houses at the same time

Cook Boxes are available to hire from Lapwing, 1 box for each House for 10 persons.

The Hobbit houses will be available to book from late May 2017.
