New Cabins are coming…
After a successful first 6 months we have decided to complete the site at Langley and commission our last 2 cabins. The wonderful team at Langley Furniture Works have started building the bases for ‘The Rushy Lot’ and ‘Bare Bones’. These 2 cabins will follow the same design as our other standard cabins – both sleeping up to 4 adults in a fixed king size bed and a king sofa bed. One (Bare Bones, we think…?) will also have a child’s bunk above the bed, the same as the ones in Blackcleugh and Wheatley’s – enabling a family of 5 to stay. Having learnt a bit about how the cabins are working we will be making a few modifications to the design – namely even more efficient glazing to help stop condensation on the windows, and possibly ethernet sockets for wired wifi connection.
So ….. the new cabins will be on site by early June, giving us a few weeks to complete decking and furnishing etc. with the anticipated date of first rental being July 1st.
The wifi and terrestrial TV connections continue to be a bit of a nightmare to be honest – we have very limited digital TV signal on site and the TVs, despite being smart TVs still apparently require some sort of digital connection to receive things like BBC iplayer (even if you are watching it through the internet – agh!!!? – something to do with identifying geographical location!!!?). Having said that – we are nearly there and hopefully it won’t be too long before we have wifi and properly working teles!!
Other exciting news is that we have ticked all the boxes with regard to the food side of the business, and can now also provide breakfast packs to guests staying in the cabins. We have ‘full english’ and ‘lighter/vegetarian’ options – details of which can be found on the pricing page of the website. Breakfast packs must be pre-ordered and will be delivered to your cabin on the day you arrive. Our own Belted Galloway burgers are also available for guests to enjoy on the BBQ!!
And also – we now have a digital guestbook on the website too – if you have enjoyed your stay with us and would like to leave some comments then we would love to hear from you.
