The Magical Cabin

1 unit · Glamping3 acres · Edmondsley, England
Magical A-Frame Wooden Cabin nestled in woodland, surrounded by trees with a stream running by. The cabin is a relaxing haven for both adults looking for a romantic getaway or families with children looking for adventure. The woodland offers tranquility and nature for adults and a playground with play area for children. I lit has the luxury of all modern amenities. The Cabin is accessed down a winding trail, which means it is only suitable for those who are able bodied. It is approximately 200m from the car parking area, therefore you must be able to carry your luggage. It is downhill to access the cabin, which means the walk back up to the car parking area is steep. This is what makes the cabin unique because once in the woodland it is just peace and tranquility. The stairs within the cabin as shown are steep but accessible for both adults and children (we lived in the cabin with our children for one year whilst renovating our home and they were 5 and 3 and managed the stairs independently. The area of great for walking, hiking and mountain biking.
