Unique renovated shepherd's cottage. Light and airy with beautiful views. South West facing stone terrace, barbecue, hammocks; sumptous breakfasts and evening meals on request. Well located for beaches, cities and mountains and fantastic cycling and walking routes. Completely off-grid for a low impact eco-holiday. Read the reviews!

The space

As with all the facilities on our farm, the Coco cabaña is off-grid, which is great if you're looking for a low impact holiday.
There are 2 very important things to consider before you decide to book:

1. If you are a very nervous driver our access will be challenging for you. However, hundreds of people in all sorts of cars have successfully negotiated it.
2. All electricity is from solar panels. THE SYSTEM IS NOT DESIGNED FOR ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES WITH HEATING ELEMENTS: NO HAIR DRYERS OR HAIR STRAIGHTENERS!!! But is fine for recharging phones, laptops etc. If there is no sun for a couple of days, we may have a no electricity...don't worry we have candles!

It's very important that our guests are willing to embrace the principle of using the resources carefully and responsibly, so please consider what this means. Please speak to us before booking, if you have any questions regarding your water and power needs.

The cabaña can sleep up to 6:
* upstairs is open plan and has a double bed and 1 set of bunk beds; *downstairs there is a sofa that converts into 1 double bed.
*There is a log burning stove (we provide free wood from beginning October to end of May but you are welcome to buy firewood if you want a fire during the summer months);
*a shower room with a hot water heater and a toilet;
*a small basic kitchen, with 3 ring burner, sink, and cooking/dining ware for 6.
*There is a cool box in the kitchen: you need to buy ice.
*During the summer months, in the nearby shed there is a shared fridge where there is space for a few things.
*Outside, the South West facing stone terrace has a table and benches for outdoor dining.
*We also have a family size barbecue which you're welcome to use.

We provide bedding, toilet paper and towels (please request towels in advance).
If you want a break from cooking, meals can be prepared on request: high quality evening meals 25€ per person and breakfasts 10€ per person (half price for children under 12). Our food is always freshly prepared to a high standard and we use our own organic produce where possible. Please give 48 hours notice if you would like a meal.

Guest access

WiFi is available near by at Straw Bale HQ WHEN THERE IS ENOUGH SOLAR ENERGY

There is a communal fridge close to our house. This is shared by the cabana, yurt and caravan, so you have a shelf each.

Also, we have a good sized trampoline that kids are welcome to play on.

Interaction with guests

Of course, we´ll be present during your stay as the farm is where we do our daily work. We´re generally pretty busy, so you´ll probably see us on our way to feed the pigs or look after the greenhouse..don´t worry though, we´ll do our best to give you your own space as much possible.

If you're interested in off-grid living or anything else that we're doing, then we are very happy to chat and share knowledge or information.

Other things to note

During the summer, on certain weeks we will have a qualified cycle ride leader staying with us. He will be offering guided cycling and walking tours around the area and will have cycles to rent. Please let us know if you're interested and we'll put you in touch.

We're also developing a series of laminated cycle and walking routes of varying lengths and difficulty. You're welcome to browse them and borrow one if it takes your fancy.

A wonderful place...back to basics, but in a comfortable and lovely way. A perfect vacation spot for us and our 2 boys of 4 and 6.

Hello everyone, We had the great fortune to spend a week at this unforgettable place. We came from Germany in threes in the car and also my 11 year old daughter enjoyed every minute of this week. The house is very cozy and clean and we never missed anything. Only the fridge we brought was very convenient. The nature on site is breathtakingly beautiful. We have seen eagles, lizards and much more. It is useful to have binoculars and hiking boots. The contact with our hosts was very pleasant and also the two dogs were incredibly lovely. (Thanks again for the fresh herbs from your garden. This makes cooking even more fun) If you want a quiet break for your holiday is absolutely right here. We will miss the evenings by the fireplace and the view of the mountains... we will keep this place in wonderful memories. Thank you for this relaxing experience. We would like to come back. Mario, Maaike & Ida :) Hallo miteinander, wir hatten das große Glück eine Woche an diesem unvergesslich schönen Ort zu verbringen. Wir sind aus Deutschland zu dritt mit dem Auto hingefahren und auch meine elfjährige Tochter hat jede Minute dieser Woche genossen. Das Haus ist sehr gemütlich und sauber und es hat uns nie an etwas gefehlt. Nur der Kühlschrank, den wir mitgebracht haben, war sehr praktisch. Die Natur vor Ort ist atemberaubend schön. Wir haben Adler, Echsen und vieles mehr gesehen. Es ist sinnvoll ein Fernglas und Wanderschuhe dabei zu haben. Der Kontakt mit unseren Gastgebern war sehr angenehm und auch die beiden Hunde waren unglaublich lieb. Wer sich eine ruhige Auszeit für seinen Urlaub wünscht ist hier absolut richtig. Wir werden die Abende am Kamin und den Blick auf die Berge vermissen und den Ort in wunderbarer Erinnerung behalten. Vielen Dank für dieses erholsame Erlebnis. Wir würden gerne wieder kommen! Mario, Maaike und Ida

The cabana was a fantastic place to stay. The views were amazing. This place would be great in any weather; the log burner and candles create a cosy atmosphere. Liz cooked for us on our first night and the food was delicious. We had quiche and salads followed by cheesecake for dessert all made with fresh fruit and vegetables. The cabana also has a hob for cooking and a shared fridge (although make sure you bring ice if there hasn't been much sunshine for the solar panels). It's a very peaceful and relaxing place and I would definitely recommend it.

Our 4-day mini vacation in Asturias was all that we could have hoped for. It was a part of Spain that we knew little about. We therefore wanted to stay somewhere close to all the attractions that this region offers. 30 minutes to the beach, less than an hour to the mountains and stunning hikes, of all degrees of difficulty, starting from their front door. They provide a hand-drawn map of the area with all the hiking routes (very accurate and easy to read). We came with our two small children and they had as much fun as we did. They loved seeing all the farm animals and jumping on the trampoline. Best of all were the meals cooked and served with care by Liz. The breakfast was a full spread that fueled us well into the afternoon. The dinners, which we enjoyed out on the patio overlooking the peaceful countryside, were divine. I cherished every mouthful and left with a number of recipes. Our stay was simply magical.

Stunning valley, very peaceful, only noises were cow bells and owls hooting. The cabana was perfect for our family of 4 (2 children aged one and four). Our little boy loved feeding the chickens and we all loved the outdoor shower option :) Food was amazing- lots of lovely fresh fruit and veg. We had dinner and breakfast for both days and Liz brought all the food to our cabana. Not only good value but you won't get anything as tasty, healthy and fresh as Liz's cooking. Thank you so much!

Liz And Steve User ProfileLiz And Steve is a superhost.

We left the UK with our daughter Grace in 2011 to come to Asturias to live, work, grow, eat, build and enjoy living a low impact high quality life in a beautiful part of the world. So far so good!
Liz is a great cook and delights in using homegrown ingredients from our organic farm. Guests, volunteers, friends and family enjoy fabulous dishes from around the world.
Steve loves doing things with his hands such as designing, creating and repairing structures and systems for the farm.
As a family we've benefited so much from our Airbnb experiences. We've met so many wonderful people from around the world and we love the challenge of making our farm a beautiful and special place to be.
