This cabin has been built mainly from reclaimed/upcycled materials. It overlooks the River Wreake, where there is a canoe that you are welcome to use during your stay. ASK about our bespoke practical and theoretical courses for all ages. We run canoe building holidays and canoe paddle making days here, and between us can offer a wide range of environmental, wood related and literary courses to suit your interests.

Stedet
Ideal for a family looking for a totally unique break. 90% of the cabin is recycled/upcycled/reclaimed materials.). Downstairs there is a double bed and a single bed, both of which have bedding provided. Upstairs on the sleeping loft , there are a variety of mattresses and pillows which you can move around to suit your family. Bedding is NOT normally provided for the sleeping loft so bring your own sleeping bags if you plan to sleep up there. There is a pile of sleeping bags up there in case anyone forgets, however.
There is electricity to the cabin, but the toilet is "off grid". ( composting toilet plus camper-van style cassette toilet).
Basic cooking facilities: fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, bread maker and Halogen oven.
Baby High Chair available. Child safety gate on the stairs ( which are rather steep).

Use of the Birchcanoes canoe on the river here ( the canoes are built here, we run canoe building holidays)
Laundry room ( £2 per load for washing, same for drying: use of the washing line is free..)
Camp fire spot near the cabin
You might want to learn to make a paddle using traditional methods and tools ( extra charge applies)
You might even want to build a Birchcanoes canoe with us ( in which case, your accommodation fees will be refunded, as that is included in the cost of canoe building)
There is a pool table, and tennis table, and a field for games like Badminton.
We live on site, but can leave you entirely to your own devices, you can come and go as you please. If you need anything, do come and ask us.
Pretty river valley dotted with lovely old villages.
Lovely thatched pub serving great meals just 1 mile down the lane in the village of Hoby ( the Blue Bell). Worth booking ahead for weekend meals.
We are situated right in the countryside, with no neighbours, nice and secluded.
We have a field where you can play Badminton etc, there are kingfishers and otters in the garden ( otters very rarely seen, kingfishers often spotted). Lots of other wildlife around ( ask about the list of species seen here, for children to tick off)
The 5a bus runs between Melton Mowbray and Leicester every 20 minutes throughout the day and early evening. The bus stop is 500 metres away.

Andre ting det er verdt å merke seg
The railway still runs by the property, you will certainly hear the trains..

There is a "Futility Room" with washing machine and tumble dryer. Just leave £2 if you use either machine. The door is always unlocked.

Hi, we are John and Carole from Brooksby in Leicestershire in the very middle of England. We have 4 children and three grandchildren. We live by a quiet river, and love hosting visitors in our two home built cabins. We first discovered Airbnb has guests in Corfu, and have since been Airbnb guests in Paris, Turin and Hay on Wye. John runs canoe building holidays here. You may well see canoe building going on during your stay. "Seize the day" "Follow the evidence wherever it leads" "if you look for a happy person you will find them building a boat"

Under oppholdet ditt
We live in the old railway station ( Grade 2 listed building) on the site, and will try and greet you when you arrive. If you need anything during your stay, please do ask, but you will be left to yourselves unless you need anything. However, we are always happy to meet people, explain what there is to see locally etc. We welcome suggestions, and you will see lots of examples of how the place has evolved over the years as a result of the brilliant ideas people have shared with us.
Carole has prepared a big folder with local information in it.
