Deck & Fire Pit

A lovely deck with a fire pit is perfect for little gatherings, a quiet cup of tea or glass in hand star gazing.

Hot Tub & Sauna

The wood fired hot tub and sauna are nestled into a stone ruin right next to the cottage, linked by a little path through the woods.

Pet Friendly

Your pet friends are very welcome on their holidays to Wood Smoke Cottage. We are sure they will love country living here too!

Wood Smoke Eco Ethos

We are lucky to live in a very unique area in the world. With that in mind, we are trying our very best to respect the area in which we live. We have solar panels that help provide hot water supply, rain-water recycling (you will be using rainwater entirely during your stay with us), food digester bins, compost bins, peat filtration sewage system, wood-fired stoves and eco-friendly cleaning materials.

Local Attractions

Please check the hallway table in the cottage when you arrive for brochures etc., but in the meantime if you want to search the internet before your trip, we would recommend looking up the following sites to get a feel for what you might plan to do in the area. The notice board in the village Spar supermarket also lists everything that is happening in the area, it is worth a stop by to check it out.
