An off-grid cabin 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 for the week or short stay. 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, 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 the big house. The Burnieshead cabin is accessible only by footpath – it is a ten minute walk from the carpark and currently the track is partially flooded by beavers so it is vital to have waterproof footwear. For an extra £10 per trip you can have your stuff transported by pickup or quad bike at the beginning and end of the stay. Water is provided in a container and can be replenished during the stay at the honesty shop as can freezer blocks for the freezer box.
There is no electricity, wifi, or running water but you can (usually) get a mobile signal nearby.
The Burnieshead Cabin is for adventurous people with a love of wildlife. Please note you do need waterproof footwear as the path is partially flooded by beavers.
