The Vine Cabin is a hand built snug insulated wooden cabin with woodburner, within sight and sound of the River Wreake where you can use our canoes . Sleeps up to 5 (2 in bunks), basic cooking facilities. Canoe building holidays by arrangement. The built in bunk can take 2 people ( increasing the capacity to 6, but they need to be friendly!!). Please bring sleeping bags for the built in bunk (the other beds have bedding provided)

The space
There is a double bed with a single bunk above, plus a single bed and a further built in bunk ( which can take 2 children) . Both the bunks are close to the ceiling and are accessible only if you are pretty agile. Please bring sleeping bags if you intend to use the built in bunk. There is a woodburning stove, and some firewood is provided. Additional firewood can be purchased at £5 /bag or you are welcome to bring your own ( provided it is dry)
Have a go in our canoes on the river which runs right by the property.
In the summer we offer Canoe Building Holidays by arrangement. ( see Birchcanoes)

Hi, we are John and Carole from Brooksby in Leicestershire in the very middle of England. We have 4 children and three grandchildren. We live by a quiet river, and love hosting visitors in our two home built cabins. We first discovered Airbnb has guests in Corfu, and have since been Airbnb guests in Paris, Turin and Hay on Wye. John runs canoe building holidays here. You may well see canoe building going on during your stay. "Seize the day" "Follow the evidence wherever it leads" "if you look for a happy person you will find them building a boat"

During your stay

You can keep yourself to yourself, or you can come and ask us if you need anything, our house is on the same property, just 50 metres from the cabin. I am particularly keen to hear your suggestions about the cabin and things which would make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable. You are always welcome to take a canoe paddling on the quiet river near the cabin.
