The Brightling Bothy is a unique and secluded experience of upmarket glamping. Set in an old sandstone building amongst fields and woodland, it offers an open fire to ensure you are warm, cosy and comfortable as well as the usual amenities incuding a shower, hot water and kitchen equipment. There are many footpaths and local walks to be explored from the bothy, and even our local pub – The Swan Inn, is within a 20 minute walk.

Rafaela, was a lovely host along with her son, very warm and welcoming. This is a historic place to stay, the lay out of the buildings is very unique and filled with a history of local habitation. Most bedrooms have easy access to bathrooms, a real plus for the 7 of us staying in…
