AIKENHEAD HOUSE

THE ORCHARD

ECO-FRIENDLY | ORGANIC | RURAL

The Orchard offers a cosy but spacious canvas bell tent where you can relax and unwind. It is off grid but with a few extra luxuries – curling up by the wood burning stove or enjoying the rural views from the wood fired hot tub.

It is a great base for exploring and adventuring. We provide a simple breakfast (vegan/GF available). We are passionate about providing an eco-friendly experience for you – organic and locally sourced items wherever possible. 

The Orchard is available from £90 per night for a minimum of two-night stay. Breakfast meat or BBQ meat bundles, cheese or antipasti board and picnic lunches are available upon request.

The Orchard accommodation is offered in conjunction with Funky Mountain Ventures.

 
THE SPACE

The Orchard forms part of the grounds belonging to very unique Aikenhead House. There are apple, plum and oak trees in The Orchard. The bell tent will be set up before your arrival for a perfect romantic, peaceful getaway.

There is a woodburning stove, double bed, chesterfield chairs, Persian rugs on the floor and lots of fairy lights to make it extra romantic. There is a private shower room and kitchen area 20m from The Orchard. It’s off grid with a bit of luxury. There is a wood fired hot tub for your own use – we just need 24 hours’ notice to get it hot and ready for you.

GUEST ACCESS

Guests will have access to The Orchard, their own kitchenette and shower room in one of our barns, secure storage for any bikes etc, kit and equipment washing areas and drying facilities. You are also welcome to wander round the small-holding (but please shut gates if you visit the animals!)

We have additional accommodation for groups if required – with a large sitting room and dining room to use together – please contact us for more information.
