Alex is a SuperhostSuperhosts are experienced, highly rated hosts who are committed to providing great stays for guests.

Be under no illusion this is like camping under a wooden roof! Not glamping or an hotel.

The views are stunning. Sorry no dogs but there are two friendly dogs that live here. And cats and ex caged chickens.

What a fantastic place to stay! I must repeat Alex's comment that it's not glamping. It's better than glamping in my book, it's quirky and awesome. Also, the dogs were a great addition to the experience, bring you frisby throwing arm!
