95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
FlashysRetreat is a three-storey 'off-grid' cabin for 2 people, built in the tiny house tradition, in private woodland, only a short walk from the parking.

'Off-grid' doesn't mean without facilities - FlashysRetreat has mains water, instant hot water, electricity. 'Off-grid' means:- you're in the 'wild'. Horses neigh! Owls hoot and bats flitter by in the dusk!

Here, nature is in abundance, giving you a chance to retreat, relax and recharge. Leaving you to your own imagination.

The space
As a three-storey woodland cabin FlashysRetreat offers a fairly unique living space. We regret that this may not suit everyone. You need to be a little bit nimble in a small space.

The first floor offers a compact living space, with kitchenette and en suite, and features double doors opening onto a large balcony.
- The kitchenette provides for the domestic essentials. In addition to a kettle and toaster there is a small refrigerator with ice box, an electric induction hob and a small electric oven.
- The "en suite" features a shower, toilet and hand basin.

The loft, which is only accessible by a ladder, provides space for a reading nook and a sleeping deck with double, natural cotton futon mattress.

Below, on the lower deck is a space for outdoor dining. A chimenea to provide the 'flicker of a flame' for those evenings sitting out and a fire bowl style charcoal grill for wild cooking or toasting marshmallows.

Where you’ll be

Summerbridge, England, United Kingdom

Nidderdale is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the farm at Throstle Nest is a small-holding on the River Nidd.
With access to local footpaths and walks along the river, it is easy to retreat into the countryside.
Private and secluded, here, the rest of the world fades to a distant memory, replaced with attractive views and surrounded by nature, leaving you to your own imagination and to immerse yourself in the incredible feeling of peace and tranquility.

Sometimes there's something important that you just have to do. FlashysRetreat takes me back to childhood, making treehouses on the farm. Only, when you do it 40 years later you're better equiped. I hope, when you stay, that you can feel the same passion for this tiny space. Although I live elsewhere, I still 'live' at Throstle Nest and can ensure that you have a great experience.
