Perfectly formed to sleep 2 per cabin in a large double bed (which converts into sofa seating & dining table). These unique Birdhouses are a combination of clever design, tech and sustainable materials. Giving you a stylish accommodation experience where you can only access incredible, idyllic spots like these when you go off-grid. Each Birdhouse cabin has its own private bathroom cabin.

With precision engineering, traditional craftsmanship and sustainable materials you’ll gain all the comforts using the latest off-grid, environmentally friendly technologies.

You will enjoy sunrises and sunsets through a beautifully crafted window providing breath-taking views from the comfort of your new home. The Birdhouse cabin design makes you feel part of the woodlands and wildlife.

On those hot summers evening, enjoy relaxing on your private deck with a glass of wine listening to birdsong and the crystal-blue water crashing on to Blackpool Sands and on those chillier days, stay cosy with the glow of the biofuel fireplace.
