Back to nature in this tranquil little wooden building, beautiful antique windows reveal a gentle vista of rolling hills and open skies. It's Ireland's answer to glamping, (with a solid roof over your head ;) ) yet the feeling of being out in nature.

The space

This is a glamping experience, it is a warm, dry, insulated wooden cabin with a comfortable bed and lovely views. Be prepared to wander through the garden to kitchen and wc. Umbrella and torch provided. Experience the exquisite quiet of the countryside interspersed by the soothing cooing of woodpigeons and the contented clucking of happy hens. Lounge in the garden as Red Kites soar overhead and, in season, snack on organic produce, especially our sweet organic grapes from the polytunnel. Look up at the milkyway sketched across the night sky and inhale sweet clean air.
The cabin accommodates 2 people, it has its own solar power supply, its south-east facing big windows provide beautiful views of the surroundings. The bed is a comfortable double and there's a fold out table and chairs and an outdoor picnic table.
BREAKFAST: A basket of breakfast goodies will be provided for you to dine at your leisure.
A 30 meter stroll through the garden brings you to the kitchen and a wc/shower room which are housed in a separate cabin. You are welcome to cook in the communal kitchen and make teas and coffee (provided) whenever you please. The kitchen has a small fridge, two hot plates and pots and pans. You'll be sharing the kitchen with other guests, you also have the option to eat in your cabin or at your private picnic table.
We have a garden Chimenea and you are welcome to light a fire there. But we ask you to bring your own fuel, a bag of logs or bale of briquettes and fire-lighters.

Guest access

Ideally you need a car to get the most out of your stay here. There is a taxi service and bike hire. Although Rathdrum and shops are only 2.2km away. There are beautiful walks close by in Avondale easily accessible by foot. By car, there's access to river and sea kayaking, trail biking, hiking and rockclimbing in the Wicklow Mountains. Go for a Wild food forage with local wise-woman Geraldine Kavanagh of Wicklow Wild Foods. There are really good quality restaurants nearby in Rathdrum and Laragh and McCreddin Village. Convenient to BrookLodge & Ballybeg wedding venues

Thanks Edwin. We really enjoyed our stay in your cozy cabin - it was perfect after a long day walking in Wicklow. The cabin was so cozy and we really enjoyed waking up to the fantastic sunshine and our waiting breakfast! See you again

We had a lovely time here. The cabin was very cosy and bigger than it looks in the pictures. It felt wonderfult to be there surrounded by nature. The hosts were very nice and the breakfast was superb. We would've liked to stay there longer and would definitely go back.

My goodness, where do you begin?! This place is a dream come true, a peaceful gem located in a simply beautiful part of Ireland. The cosy cabin is so cleverly appointed, every little touch is just inspired. It's extremely comfortable and the tranquility is the icing on the cake. We loved the delicious breakfast, better than many hotel breakfasts we've had (sincerely), the kitchen is ideal, as are the showering facilities. Fiona and Edwin have thought of everything, I cannot fault this place and I'm very keen to return. This experience was very special and memorable. Thank you!

Lovely experience. Cabin is exactly as described. Very comfy bed and small seating area. Cabin is well positioned for good privacy. Would have preferred if the shared kitchen was a little further away from main house, but thoroughly enjoy the breakfast basket! Toilet and shower is for your private use with plenty of hot water. A very comfortable stay. :)

Although I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Edwin or Fiona. They couldn't have been more communicative and helpful. The place is picture perfect. Exactly as described. Great efforts made by the hosts. The ever so friendly hens were a constant companion to us. The breakfast basket left for us was delightful and delicious. This place is a little gem. I will deffinatly be back.

Edwin and Fiona's cabin was such a sweet and relaxing place to stay. The cabin felt very secluded from anything else on the lot and had beautiful views into nature. Edwin and Fiona have fantastic taste in decor and the little touches really made it. Transport from Dublin to the village was easy and we walked out to Edwin and Fiona's because there was no transport available to us, but it was a nice and doable walk!

We love country living, growing vegetables, keeping poultry, wandering in the great outdoors. We also love to share the beauty that surrounds us. As well as English, Ed speaks fluent German and Dutch and some Spanish. Fiona speaks limited French, with a deceptively good accent!!!
