As seen on Channel 4’s “Escape to the Wilderness” this off-grid cabin is in a quiet clearing in the woods at the heart of Bamff Wildland, near the UK’s best beaver wetlands. The cabin was built by a collaboration of artist joiners, from a combination of new and used materials. The cabin is ultimately intended for use by an artists’ residency but for now it is available to rent by the week, half week or long week-ends. It sleeps 2 but could fit one or two small children with own bedding.
The many windows make it wonderfully light, but the bed has its own antique patchwork curtains to shut out the light at night time.
It has a large deck, a double bed, (accessed from one side only) a wood burning stove, camping gas cooker and freezer box. (Freezer blocks can be re-frozen in the Bamff shop freezer.)
It has its own composting toilet but no shower. You may use the shower at the back of Bamff House.
The Burnieshed cabin is accessible only by footpath – it is a ten minute walk from the carpark along the Burnieshed path with its many beaver dams. Parts of the path may be muddy or flooded so it is vital to wear waterproof footwear. The beavers come out in the evening and go to bed in the morning so you may see them if you stand quietly on the path at these times. If you book for 4 nights or more we offer a luggage run for your stuff at the beginning and end of your stay, by quad bike or 4 wheel drive vehicle. Water is provided in a container and can be replenished during the stay at the Bamff honesty shop.
There is no electricity, wifi, or running water but you can (usually) get a mobile signal nearby.
The Burnieshed Cabin is a wonderful location for people with a love of wildlife and adventure.
