If you want to get back to nature but don't want to leave your creature comforts behind then "The Captain's Retreat" is the place for you. Having finished our first cabin, it has all of the luxuries you would expect from a 5* hotel, it just happens to also be in the most tranquil and private setting. Upon arrival you find your own designated parking space where you will walk through the enchanting woodland to find your very own little piece of calm, where you can unwind in a hand made cabin.

The space
Inspired by his experience of living in the wild for a year and his Grandfather; a gold mining prospector Jack has created Finglen Cabins. The "Captain's Retreat" is a little piece of paradise where you can escape the hustle and bustle of modern life. Come and relax on the verandah with a long drink and listen to sound of bird song and the burn which runs through our wild flower meadow.

Finglen Cabins has everything that you will need for a relaxing getaway, whether you want to stay for the weekend or a month we we have thought of everything. There is hot running water, electricity, a woodfired oven and hob as well as an electrical hob (just in case it's too hot to fire up the oven)! There is an indoor bathroom with hot shower, sink and composting toilet, yes we have an indoor composting toilet. Don't worry the composting toilet is state of the art, it has a fan to remove any "odd" smells and a full user guide is included in your cabin welcome pack as there are some key tips that you need to know about using the composting toilet. It also has a smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm for safety. The cabin sleeps two people in a luxurious double bed with a storage drawer cleverly hidden under the bed, we also have a small wardrobe for anyone who doesn't want to leave their fancy frocks behind. Heating is provided by the wood burning stove and there is an electrical radiator in the bathroom, so you wont have to worry about cold damp towels. The cabin has been designed and built to be very heat efficient so it doesn't require much heating, and when warm it holds its heat amazingly well. We have created a generous veranda so that you can enjoy the fresh air when relaxing or eating during your stay. The icing on the cake and we are very proud of this addition is the hot running outdoor bath tub. What more could anybody want than to soak in a hot bath on a summer or winters evening whilst enjoying your favourite tipple and gazing longingly at the meadow and river as it winds its way past the cabin.
