Nestled in centuries-old Scots Pine Forest, the Award Winning Woodman’s eco hut is a romantic hideaway almost entirely crafted from its surroundings.

“We stayed in the Woodmans Hut and it was absolutely perfect for me and my husband. We booked our honeymoon with Sarah and Phil and they are 2 of the loveliest people that you could meet. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The view that you wake up to every morning outside is just breathtaking. It was so peaceful and relaxing for us. We can’t wait to go back and stay there again xxx”. Gemma and Luke, Ireland, March 2020.

Lounge in the breathtaking landscape that unfolds before you; a vast moorland providing the foreground to the majestic uninterrupted Cairngorms National Park Northern Corries and Ryvoan Pass winding its way to Rothiemurchus Estate and Aviemore. Luxurious and laid back, this fully off-grid retreat is for couples who want to relax, recharge and reconnect.

Ask for the copy of Melanie Hudson’s The Wedding Cake Tree to read during your stay. Our Woodman’s eco hut is one of five experience to have in life …

The Woodman’s eco hut is self-catering however we can provide you with a Lazy Breakfast Hamper consisting of home baked bread, eggs from our hens, homemade granola, local jams and butter. From mid-summer onwards enjoy salads and vegetables from our garden. Our hampers can be pre-booked or arranged before you arrive.

We ask that lit chimeneas and cooking stoves are never left unattended. Please don’t approach the pond or wander amongst the ducks, but please them from the bench overlooking the water.

The Lazy Duck is a peaceful place. Please be mindful of this when you are enjoying the swings and hammock and around the chimenea fires. For everybody’s benefit we ask for a respectful quiet period between 11pm and 8am. Lazy Duck is a non-smoking environment.

Regrettably visiting pets are not possible on account of the sensitive wildlife in the vicinity.
