Our fave things to do near Wilbur

Sword Inn Hand

The Sword Inn Hand is beautiful countryside pub serving fine food and with an extensive drinks menu. It's super cosy inside, or in warmer months you can enjoy their outdoor dining area. We love it here!

Westmill village

Explore Westmill which is looks like it has come straight from a period drama - historically used as a location for Foyle's War. There's also great wild flower walks and trails nearby. 

The Tea Room

Stop in for freshly baked cakes and treats whilst exploring the area. The Tea Room is a quintessentially British spot that will fuel you on your walk back to the cabin.

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!

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.
