Painted a rusty red outside – the colour of our free-roaming Tamworth pigs – the Tamworth hut has double glazed doors opening onto a veranda facing the setting sun.
The interior uses recycled materials including floorboards salvaged from the west wing of the Castle, and is furnished with an antique writing-desk and two armchairs.
The double bed is 5ft wide x 6ft long and situated at one end of the hut, surrounded by three walls, making it warm and cosy on even the chilliest of nights. However, we do suggest our taller guests might be more comfortable in a full length king-size bed in one of our tents.
The bed has a luxury natural fibre mattress, feather duvet and four down pillows, pure Egyptian cotton bed-linen, and colourful recycled wool blankets. Towels are provided and we can provide hypoallergenic bedding on request.
The wood-burning stove in the corner has a glass door so you can watch the flames, with a stove-top kettle and coffee-maker. We supply a starter box of kindling, eco-firelighters and sustainably sourced wood; further supplies are available from our campsite shop.
All of our accommodation is off-grid. Lighting is provided by a battery hurricane lamp, two bedside reading lights, and a candle lantern.
Outside, the hut has its own upcycled fire-pit and barbeque grill, with two hardwood chairs.
