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.

The Mud brick studio is a place to relax. Whether you have brought the kids, the pets or just yourselves we think you will find The Mud House a blissful retreat.

Beautiful place to unwind

  • 4 of 5

My little family and I had a fantastic stay - beautiful surroundings and a great place to focus on the important things. Athena and Yvette were very accommodating and I would recommend this quiet little get away to anyone.

comfortable cottage

  • 4 of 5

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.
