The wood is clearly sign-posted and we show up on google maps (search for Trees at Tughall). We are just south of Swinhoe on the B1340.
The cabins are the same koto-designed, prefabricated units. What sets them apart is their relationship to their surroundings:
They are placed to provide maximum privacy and emersion.
Your cabin will be locked ahead of your arrival. Your keys will be in a locked box to the left of the doors on the deck.
The code to open this box can be found on your confirmation email under ‘additional information’.
Our cabins are increadibly thermally efficient, so will not require much effort to heat, even on the coldest of days.
Each cabin has a wood burning stove and supply of logs.
There are also 2 manual plinth heaters per cabin:
They do not turn off automatically, so be sure to turn off when you are warm enough!
OPEN STOVE DOOR SLOWLY TO PREVENT SPREAD OF ASH & KEEP STOVE DOOR CLOSED AT ALL TIMES
The stove will be primed before your arrival for use. All you will have to do is light it and keep feeding it with logs. The dial at the bottom of the stove controls air intake, and therefore how hot it can get – the more central the dial the cooler, the more to the right the warmer.
Each cabin will be fully stocked with seasoned, farm-sourced logs, kindling, firelighters and matches.
A good tutorial on how to re-light your stove can be found here.
*You will be supplied with enough logs and kindling for your stay. If you somehow runout please do not use wood found on-site, just give us a call and we will replenish your stocks.*
Your cabin has an electric oven and induction hobs.
Ensure the red switch to the left of the kitchen area is turned on.
*Please do not attempt to use the stove for cooking. Both the stove and utensils are not designed for this and could result in damage to property or injury.*
