Interaction with guests
It's up to you. Rebecca provides a perfect getting away from it all or retreat space and many people are happy to be left to their own devices but for those who like to interact and chat, that's absolutely fine too.
Other things to note
Our track is rough and we advise guests to drive very slowly. All kinds of vehicles have driven unharmed down it over decades, but the potholes deserve some respect.
No smoking in Hut or Treebog please. Smoking is fine outside.
Dog friendly for one well-behaved dog. £10 extra charge per dog.
No wild parties please! An all wood dwelling with woodstove and tea lights needs sensible people to look after it!
Unsuitable for small children (steps, stream, wood burner etc potentially hazardous. Ok for children over 7 with parental guidance - but there's only one bed (double).

Things I would survive without but love: family, friends,sunshine, countryside, travel, photography, music, film, dancing, gardening, walking, hanging out, bonfires, stargazing, nordic noir tv, spirituality, a good laugh, hills and sea…the list could go on for some time….
