Book Cabin


Griffin is brand new, so these are reviews of his brother cabin Arwen. 


Find the answer to our most frequently wondered things. Read all FAQs here. 

You can travel to Griffin via car or public transport (train and short taxi ride). 

After booking your chosen cabin, youโ€™ll receive an online โ€˜Welcome Guideโ€™ detailing the exact location of the cabin and directions by car or train and taxi. If youโ€™re travelling by train, we highly recommend booking your connecting taxi in advance, as rural locations donโ€™t tend to have Uber!

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

๐Ÿ“š A selection of our fave books 
๐Ÿ‘พ Board games 
๐Ÿƒ Diary of CEO Conversation Cards 
๐Ÿ“ป Radio Cassette Player + Tapes 
๐Ÿ“ธ Instant Camera + 10 free films 
๐Ÿ—บ 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.

Check-in is at 3pm 
Check-out is at 10am 

We donโ€™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 youโ€™re looking for a night or two away from the stove, thereโ€™s always plenty of nearby pubs and restaurants listed in our cabin guides.

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!

Griffin is on private land and is lockable from the inside and outside, but it is very remote so it would be a true off-grid experience. 

We include enough firewood for your first night. You can add full log store access to your booking for ยฃ20 on checkout, which includes firewood, kindling and firelighters. 

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.

All our stays are 3 or 4 nights as this is the minimum time it takes to fully switch off and reap the benefits of nature and time offline. You can read more about 'The 3 Day Effect' here. 

We know plans can change, so weโ€™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.
