Sip cocoa under a starlit sky, miles from the hustle and bustle. Toast marshmallows on the fire bowl, snug in a woollen blanket. Eat a home-cooked meal at the dining table and unwind on the sofa after a day of adventuring. Make secret plans in the play area. Watch the sunset from the deck.

We have two canvas Pioneer Lodges; Hazel Meade and West Coombe, each sleeping six people.

Embrace that pioneer spirit. Watch the deer in the woods and the buzzards in the sky. Light the wood-burner and curl up on the king-size bed under the authentic American quilt. Explore the games cupboards and swap stories. Relax with a cold beer out on the porch, or cosy up around the fire bowl.

We have three cosy cabins; Ranchers, Trappers and Gold Panners, each sleeping up to four people.
