On arrival, breathe in the fresh country air, allow your senses to take in a magnificantly crafted mud brick studio. Put on the kettle and enjoy some locally roasted organic coffee, or pour a glass of local wine and let yourself unwind.

Depending on the time of day drink in the natural light as it streams through the windows or gaze up to the thousands of stars that dance in the night skies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfortable cottage We had a lovely 4 night stay at the Mud House. Would have preferred a more remote location and more cooking facilities but enjoyed our time there regardless. Of course it was great to have our old cat with us. Friendly and helpful hosts. Overall, a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Thank you.
