Guests can treat themselves to a bird’s-eye view of the house from the viewing platform or stay indoors and watch Netflix on our fully-integrated smart TV. Wood-fire heating and electric blankets are available year-round. Luxuries include fine bed linen from IN BED store and Aesop body products. Minimum 2 nights, unless otherwise agreed.
