*These are ‘cabins in the woods’. They are basic but brilliant for runners. It’s relaxed and informal and accommodation is on a shared basis. Rooms are either double or twin rooms. Don’t panic – you won’t be sharing with anyone in a double room (!) unless you request it at the time of booking. Twin rooms are always shared with same gender.
Group bookings: Please advise when booking if you are coming as a group and we’ll do our best (but it might not always be possible!) to put you in the same lodge or lodges close together. If you’re coming on your own, that’s just fine too. We look after everyone.
* T&C’s. Payment required in full in advance. Payments cannot be refunded (but places can be transferred).
