Brockloch bothy is a contemporary micro timber framed building which has been sympathetically designed to complement its surroundings.
The Bothy is accessed via a farm track (non tarmac) and is signposted up through a bluebell wood out into an open field, grazed by our black faced sheep. The farm consists of 190 acres of unbroken scenery where red kites, deer and badgers are regularly seen.
Eco credentials include:
- Sustainable timber

The Bothy includes an open plan kitchen/ sitting room with wood burning stove and sofa bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas hob, oven and small fridge.

As the Bothy is “off grid” 2 large solar panels provide 12v electricity to power low voltage lighting and a point to charge a laptop/mobile phone. Egyptian cotton bed linen, towels and a 12v hair dryer are also provided. Decking at the front allows you to enjoy the panoramic views over the countryside.
