About Basil

If you're a wine lover, a woodland lover or a just-do-nothing lover, then Basil is your guy. He's only a short way from Kinsbrook Vineyard serving delicious English wine and seasonal plates. Perfect for families and groups too, as his twin cabin Gruff is a short walk away.


Basil has a kitchen with gas hobs, all the culinary equipment you'll need to cook up a storm. Built for a digital detox, you'll arrive to a phone lockbox, books and board games for 3 nights of slower living. 


Basil is dog-friendly, so you can bring your pooch along too 🐶

TUCKED AWAY FROM EACH OTHER

Our cabin duo

Basil and Gruff sit on the same estate so are not too far away from each other. They're close to each other but still have their own secluded area. 

Perfect if you want to be surrounded by nature but feel reassured that other guests are nearby, or for staying with friends and family.

FAQs

After booking your chosen cabin, you’ll receive an online ‘Welcome Guide’ detailing the exact location of the cabin and directions by car or train and taxi. If you’re travelling by train, we highly recommend booking your connecting taxi in advance, as rural locations don’t tend to have Uber!

We recommend you unplug for the full duration of your stay to get the most from your digital detox, but this is totally self-policed. Our lockboxes have a padlock and key, with the key in a sealed envelope, so if you want to unlock it, you can. We provide you with a Nokia so you can reach our cabin support team and contact friends and family if you need to. The number for the Nokia will be shared with you in advance of your stay.

The cabin is your space to relax in any way you like to, but we’ve kitted it out with lots of phone-free activities, including:

📚 A selection of our fave books 
👾 Board games 
🃏 Diary of CEO Conversation Cards 
📻 Radio Cassette Player + Tapes 
📸 Instant Camera + 10 free films 
🗺 Map and compass 

And of course you might want to head out and explore the local area. The map and welcome guide include recommendations of restaurants, cafes and other attractions nearby.

Yes! All our cabins have hot showers and an eco-composting toilet in an indoor bathroom. We provide eco-friendly toiletries and luxury towels, too!

We don’t currently include food packages, but all cabins have a well-equipped kitchen including a mini-fridge and gas hob to cook up your fave meals. We include pots, pans, cooking utensils and even chef knives. Plus, loose leaf tea, coffee beans, oil, salt and pepper. 

If you’re looking for a night or two away from the stove, there’s always plenty of nearby pubs and restaurants listed in our cabin guides.

We know plans can change, so we’ll always do what we can to accommodate booking amendments. If your check-in date is over 28 days away, your stay can be rebooked for a new date or you can request a voucher, or a full refund. If your check-in date is within 14-28 days, you can move your stay to a future date, or request a voucher equal to the payment you have made. Cancellations or amendments are unfortunately not possible if your check-in date is in or within 14 days. All bookings have a 48 hour cooling off period, so if you change your mind you can reschedule your stay or get a full refund. Rescheduled stays are non-refundable.
