Our beautiful hand crafted shepherd's hut is the ideal retreat for those who like the best of both worlds, located in the market town of Forres you would never know you are right in the centre of town, nestled at the bottom of our mature garden.

The space
The red caravan offers a cosy living space with wood burning stove, kitchen area and a comfy double mezzanine bed with two fold out chair beds. There is an outdoor compost toilet just a stones throw from the caravan door and a hot outdoor bush shower and bush bath/ hot tub. Included in the space is a veranda, a secluded patio area for barbecues or a small outdoor fire, there is also 2 large decking areas, one being fully undercover. The space has fantastic double windows which open up to a third of the width of the space and lead on to a decking area where you can relax under the apple tree and watch the garden birds or look out on to the beautiful garden. There is electricity in the cabin that is provided by a solar panel.
The outdoor hot tub is fired by logs and you can bathe outdoors all night long in the rain or in the snow or watching the stars. If you're lucky you might even see the aurora borealis..the northern lights!

Guest access
Guests have their own private access from the town centre car park, where you can also park for free for the duration of your stay. Guests have access to the cabin, patio, decking area and garden area beyond the apple trees.

Other things to note
It is important to note that unfortunately the accommodation is not suitable for guests in wheelchairs as the mezzanine bed is accessed via a ladder and the toilet has some steps, so normal levels of agility are required.
We have a dog (Ruby) which we will try to keep out of your way during your stay, (unless you would like her to visit). It's important that the gate is kept shut at all times as ruby is quite keen on looking for opportunities to steal food!

Location

Forres, Moray, United Kingdom

Forres is a wonderful little town and Tolbooth street is in our opinion the best street in town, boasting a great restaurant, the best cafe in town, a brilliant butchers, a lovely pub, more hair dressers that you can shake a stick at, a pet shop and even a museum! not bad for a little town!
We are right in the heart of Forres, just about 100m from the high street and also close to the lovely Grant park which leads in to beautiful woodland which surrounds the town. The local swimming pool is also just a short walk away in case you are not brave enough for the bush shower and prefer a hot shower and steam room or sauna instead.
Forres is also just five miles from the wonderful coastal village of Findhorn which has fantastic unspoiled beaches complete with resident seals. The world renowned Findhorn Foundation is also close by which has its own cafe, whole food shop and Arts centre with regular exhibitions. There is a great cycle track all the way from Forres to Findhorn.

We are a young at heart creative couple who love making beautiful things and beautiful spaces. Steve is a djembe drummer and facilitates workshops and drum circles. Caroline is an contemporary artist and sculptor. Together we make 'singing trees' and sell our outdoor musical instruments (xylophones) to schools across the country. It has been a joy to create a special place in our garden for visitors and friends alike.
