relax within the truffle’s cocoon-like curves, calmed by the soothing sounds of nature.
sun-dapple lives up to its name as the sun dapples and dances on the truffle’s clean curves. sun-dapple is on the far edge of the woodland with one window facing west towards the neighbouring field with the break in trees letting in a blissful sunlight. honeydown is a woodland island surrounded by working farmland on all sides. depending on the time of year, sun-dapple’s view might include a field full of bouncing lambs, or luscious meadow. win win!
inside your truffle there is a wood-burning stove, comfy solid wooden bed with sprung mattress, winter tog duvets for the night-time chill, upcycled table and chairs, hammock and lots of blankets, books, games and low light lamps.
Outside sun-dapple has shelter from two large canopies bordered with festoon lights. all truffles have their own aquaforno (a cool combination of bbq and pizza oven), a simple gas hob (for a speedy morning cuppa) and a fire pit.
a short wander through the trees will lead you to the cabin which houses all the bathrooms and kitchen prep areas. each truffle has a private bathroom and its own kitchen area with fridge and sink. you also have a plug socket here for charging devices – this is the only area with power at honeydown as we try hard to remain offgrid as much as possible while still offering guests some home comforts.
there are five truffles at Honeydown, all around 50 metres apart. you may bump into other guests at the cabin, so there are opportunities to socialise if you fancy, but at your truffle you have your own private parcel of woodland.
