As seen on BBC Countryfile, The Hideaway is situated on a lovely woodland footpath on the Cateran trail, overlooking two beaver ponds and one beaver dam. It is a little bit like a wildlife watching hide, but it is also a romantic off-grid glamping hut of great charm. With such proximity to the beavers habitat at the front and a wood full of red squirrels behind, the Hideaway is ideal for lovers of quiet places and wildlife. We ask our guests to be especially quiet around the pools from 7 pm when beavers and beaver watchers are about.
Inside is a four poster bed, built from beaver cut wood, a wood burning stove, two armchairs and a coffee table. There is also a table where you can boil a kettle or cook something up on a camping gas stove.
The Hideaway usually has its own off-grid shower but it is decommissioned in winter & currently because of storm damage. It is due to be reinstated in summer 2022. There is also a composting toilet in the woods behind. Fairy lights and lamps, a USB point to recharge your phone, and the shower are powered by a solar panel on the roof and a car battery ensures electricity all year round (with modest use!). Water for the shower is supplied from a rain water barrel from the roof.
A z-bed can be made up on request for a small extra charge (or used with own bedding free). There is also a hammock which might be an option for a child.
It is fully equipped with bed linen, towels, crockery, cutlery, and candles. An initial basket of firewood is supplied. Extra firewood is for sale at £5 a bag.
Hideaway guests may make use of the Yurt Facilities if needed, including a shower and room with wifi and tourist information.
If you are not arriving on foot or by bike you can park your car nearby.
