The Hidden Tubhouse
Take a refreshing shower, bathe the children or have a romantic soak side by side in our outdoor bathroom, with two traditional cast iron baths and a shower. The tubhouse is free for all guests to use, our only request is that you use earth friendly products at all times (supplied in our shop if your forget your own) and be mindful of other guests who may be waiting their turn. Nestled in a small wooded area near The Facilities Lodge, take in the view of the sky and trees, listen to the gentle babbling of the nearby stream and relax.
Please note: the tub house is available throughout the yurt season. However, if you are staying in a cottage during winter months – please do ask if you would like to use it.
Why not hire our lovely hand built cob pizza oven during your stay. To hire the pizza oven costs just £10 and includes a basket of wood, pizza paddle and detailed instructions on how to use it. Please book a slot on arrival or when confirming your booking. You can buy pizzas from our shop or make your own dough. You can always hire the oven to cook other delicious delights…get your imagination flowing!
We sell a small selection of locally sourced items – Prosecco, wine & cider from our local wine merchants in Crediton, BBQ charcoal made in Devon, eco fire lighters, additional baskets of wood, soap, natural shower & bath products, a small selection of ready meals, pizza, coffee freshly roasted and ground from Roastworks Devon, ice, some local art and a few other items.

Claire is experienced in teaching all levels – she specialises in yoga therapy and restorative yoga and can offer Ayurvedic Massage. Alternatively, try her Hatha Vinyasa flow session!
All equipment will be provided.
