Crackpot Cottage Log Cabin, Richmond
Our cosy log cabin is furnished simply. It includes: a comfy double bed, a small table and 2 chairs, 1 eco-friendly bio-stove for warmth and 2 bed side tables. Duvet, pillows, bed linen and towels are provided. A tank of fresh drinking water from our well is provided daily. Breakfast is included. We'll serve it to you in the cabin between 8.00am and 9.00am at a time of your choice. There is no electricity or wifi in the cabin. Lighting is provided by way of 4 battery-operated storm lanterns.
We provide rechargeable batteries. There are no cooking facilities in the cabin but you will have exclusive use of a fire pit/barbeque in the picnic area adjacent to the cabin. We provide skillets, Dutch oven, campfire single cast iron toaster, and kettle for you to make full use of if you wish to cook on the campfire. We also provide crockery and cutlery. 1 bag of logs and kindling is included in the price.
Additional bags of logs are for sale for £5.00 and bags of kindling for £2.50 each. The bio-fire stove uses ethanol fuel, which gives 2.5 hours of heat at full blast. We fill the stove once a day at no extra cost. You can request extra refills for £2.50 each. For safety reasons we refill the stove ourselves when and if requested. Next to the cabin there is a washing up area, with a bowl and drainer.
We also provide eco-friendly washing up liquid. No other products are to be used. The compost toilet and the basic shower are opposite the washing up area, surrounded by trees. The compost toilet features a urine diverter; therefore it is essential that both men and women sit to pee! Only toilet roll can be discarded in the toilet. There is a bin for any other waste.
The shower next to the toilet is very basic. It consists of a camping shower bag with shower head which we refill daily. There is not hot water. We provide eco-friendly shower gel and shampoo. No other products are to be used.
