Our Yurts (5 available) Our luxurious yurts are presented fully furnished. Sleeping 4 to 6 people - all beds are dressed in hotel standard linen for your comfort. Fresh towels are also provided with our compliments for use in our lovely hot showers. The Yurts are round handmade wooden structures covered in a thick heavy canvas – making them breathable and waterproof! We will keep you snug in your Yurt with a real wood burning stove too. Each Yurt has a locking front door and window for natural day light. When it gets dark we have provided you with sparkly fairy lights (uber girlie) and beautiful lanterns for candles.
Our Shepherd Huts (2 available)
The cosy shepherd huts are charming old style caravans and sleep up to 2 people. They fit a kingsize bed dressed in fresh crisp linen, blankets and all the same cosy furnishings and heating found in the yurts.

If you are looking to upscale your Hen Weekend we are delighted to accommodate additional sleepers in our fabulous bell tents. These can sleep 4 to 6 people and can be pitched up around the site – giving your event a real festival theme. Note: These tents are not fully furnished and guests booking bell tents will need to order additional bedding if required.

1) Active Hen - Kayaking, rafting, high wire rope walks, tree climbing, archery, paintball/clay pigeon/horse riding.

5) Mother Hen – The Fertility Road Trip – As you explore the local area you will see just how close we are to The Magical Hill of Tara. Local folklore has it that the phallic stone on the top of Tara has magical Fertility Properties ... for those Hen's looking to get their 'family under way’ we strongly recommend a visit - and give the Phallic Stone good old rub for luck.
