This cabin has been built mainly from reclaimed/upcycled materials. It overlooks the River Wreake, where there is a canoe that you are welcome to use during your stay. ASK about our bespoke practical and theoretical courses for all ages. We run canoe building holidays and canoe paddle making days here, and between us can offer a wide range of environmental, wood related and literary courses to suit your interests.
“John's place is just the most wonderful escape from busy life. We canoed down the little tranquil river and heard, but didn't spot, the Kingfisher. We met the little fat, blonde-faced hedgehog and the very handsome rooster. We loved the wildflower verges on the walk to the Bluebell Inn for tea. We visited Rutland Water and saw the Ospreys and their fledged young as well as lots of other birds and insects. We slept SO well for the 2 nights in the peaceful cabin - the best 2 nights sleep either of us have had for a long time. We lit the log-burner to take the chill off in the morning - and just because we could and the warm glow from the fire makes the cabin even more homely! We felt like we were living in a cabin in the Yukon (with a slightly smaller river, but hey!) - if you love the outdoor life, this is the place for you and you can even build your own canoe, which I will definitely be doing next summer - I cannot think of anything more wonderful and in touch with nature than working with wood to make your own canoe and carving a name for it on the front and then taking something so beautiful that you have made yourself onto a river. John is one of THE most friendly and personable people I have ever met and nothing would be too much trouble for him to ensure that you have the best time possible whilst staying in his lovely choice of accommodation (the yurt, the round cabin, the two wooden cabins by the river etc). Thank you John for a wonderfully relaxing weekend away from the stressed and strains of a busy working life.”
