This is an experience like no other. Accommodation includes four 10-square-metre huts, fitted with everything you need and nothing you don't: a queen-sized bed, wood-burning fire and towels to dry off after a soak in the tub, with access to shared kitchen and bathroom facilities in the nearby chalet.

In winter you have access to your own hiking basin as well as access to the Mt Lyford Ski Resort.

Ice skate on the lake when conditions are right with skate hire available on site. 

In summer, enjoy exclusive access to three mountains to climb, hike and mountain bike. Swim in the lake and enjoy the breath taking views. 

Stay in our beautiful little huts away from the stresses of life, unwind and get off your phones and read a book from our library in Stella hut. 

Soak in your own private wood fired hot tub in front of your hut. On a clear night sit back and look at the stars or relax as snow falls around you.
