Outside, you’ll find wraparound decking with an amazing outdoor bathtub. Enjoy a drink or dine amongst the trees on the decked area, toast marshmallows at the communal fire pit, or pop down to the Garden Room Restaurant for a meal or a cocktail. It really is guaranteed to be an unforgettable stay!

With views through the woods, the eleven Hives are the most idyllic place for a romantic getaway with a difference! Each of the Hives has a king-sized bed, ensuite shower room, chef’s cupboard, fridge, microwave and sink, perfect for 2 people. The open plan interior complements the surrounding landscape, making you feel that you’re in the middle of nowhere when, in reality, the temptation of a cocktail and an intimate meal is only a stone’s throw away at the nearby Garden Room Restaurant.
