Created from from stone, turf and grass, they blend seamlessly into their surroundings, while the interiors comfortably sleep four in surprisingly modern surroundings.

Curved Stone House sleeps four in two double/twin bedrooms with two bathrooms, while the slightly smaller Treetop house sleeps three in one double and one single, with one bathroom.
