Ash – You approach the second of our lodges through an avenue of cherry trees which leads you to the bridge to the front deck. Situated in an elevated position on the hillside Ash enjoys views over the pond and lower woodland as well as the spectacular views across the rolling Rutland countryside or the amazing sun sets which can be seen from your elevated deck with its glass balustrade or from the comfort of your lounge area.
Ash has its own en-suite bathroom with a roll top bath with shower mixer and separate en-suite wash room with a washbasin. In addition you have your very own private toilet situated separately to the rear of the tent with its own bridge from the tent. Hot water is provided on demand. We provide a gorgeous range of eco friendly bathroom products, including shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. Also provided are basic essentials such as loo paper and hand soap.
At the heart of the lodge is our wood burning stove: it will keep the lodge warm in all weathers, and provides a means of cooking much like a normal cooker with a hob and oven and the luxury of a warming draw for you plates. We do also provide a small gas ring so that you can enjoy that all important cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate without having to light the stove.
The kitchen is fully equipped with cooking utensils, pots, pans, crockery, cutlery and glassware, kitchen roll, cli ng film, foil, bin bags, washing up essentials, tea towels, hand towel, as well as fresh herbs and essential condiments. It has its own twin Belfast sink and a solar powered fridge freezer to ensure the ice cream doesn’t melt and your favourite tipple is chilled to perfection.
The dining table provides seating for six and is the perfect venue to discuss the days adventures and make plans for the next.
Whether it be the twin room, King-sized master or bespoke cabin bed you are assured of a restful night’s sleep in Ash with our comfy mattress and all seasons duvets and for that little bit of extra cosy each bed gets a hot water bottle to snuggle up with.
At the front of the Lodge is the large deck area which is surrounded by a glass balustrade so you can make the most of the view. The deck has a dining table and six reclining dining chairs along with the second trunk of delights packed with things to keep you entertained outdoors. Why not break out the hot water bottles and blankets and recline for an evening of stargazing with your favourite tipple, or try and spot the international space station as it glides across the night sky. Or take the opportunity for an evening of spotting badgers, bats, barn owls and the occasional fox. If you are really lucky you will spot one of the fallow deers that visit the woodland.
In the daytime the opportunities to spot wildlife are endless, from the aerial acrobatics of dragon flies to grazing rabbits, squirrels, pheasants, partridge and hares to the majestic buzzards and red kites.
To the front of the deck and just across the bridge to your lodge is a dedicated BBQ area that’s perfect for when alfresco dinning is the order of the day.
To the side of Ash there is a wood-fired hot tub (optional extra item).
NB: All lodges come c/w wood-fired pizza oven, fire pit & hammocks.
