Q. How is the Woodland Cabin powered?
A. The cabin is located in a private woodland and is powered by a generator that will be turned on before your stay.
We are very conscious of the environment and wasting precious fuel, so we would kindly ask that if you are going out for the day, you send us a quick text and we will turn the generator off while you are out, and back on again for your return.
