BOOKing

Check availability at the bottom of the page, and then request to book using the form below. Booking is from Saturday to Saturday. Please don’t email us to book as we won’t have all the information we require. Your booking is not guaranteed until we have sent you written confirmation that the solitary hut is reserved and full payment has been received.

We cannot guarantee which hut you will be in, although we will take note of your preference and try to accommodate it where possible.

Price

£335/£265 per week (Saturday to Saturday)

If your income is equivalent to the Living Wage or higher, you pay the standard rate. This applies even if you are unemployed but have significant savings, investments or a sizable pension. 

The concession rate is for those whose income is limited (unemployed with no significant savings, low/state pension, or are earning less than the living wage).

Cancellation Policy

Full payment is required at booking. The non-refundable amount varies depending on when you cancel. We retain 25% if the cancellation is received over 12 weeks before the start of the solitary, 50% is retained when there is notice given four weeks in advance, and 75% is retained if cancellation is less than a month before the start date.

ARRIVAL AND CHECK-OUT

Check in between 4-5pm on the day your solitary begins – come to the Reception building upon arrival. Please fully vacate the solitary hut by 10.30am so we can thoroughly clean and prepare the solitary hut for it’s next occupant and check out at Reception on the day you leave.

Please note all solitary retreats begin and end on a Saturday, and the minimum stay is one week.
