Everyone who visits Woodsman's cabin in a Dordogne forest in France agrees that the peacefulness of the setting is what they love about it most. It provides comfortable accomodation for 2 people in an exclusive lakeside setting. The whole ethos of a holiday in a cabin is to provide a welcoming retreat with minimal impact on the environment. Nature is all around you.
Woodsman's cabin provides the perfect antidote to anyone leading a busy stressful life. Its peaceful surroundings of forests and lakes immediately soothe the soul. The cabin is off-grid. Solar power and a wood-burning stove are used to provide light and to heat water and keep the cabin toasty. Alternative energies are used to provide our visitors with a perfect combination of a back to nature experience, without foregoing today's modern comforts.
Throughout the local area of forests and rolling pastureland there are miles of off road tracks for cycling, walking, birdwatching, wildlife photography, mushrooming or looking for wild flowers. Bathing lakes are nearby. You can birdwatch, enjoy the flora and fauna, take walks through the forest or cycle around the pretty local countryside. A visit to the colourful markets in nearby towns is highly recommended to experience the fabulous local produce. If that seems a bit energetic, just relax on the raft and listen to the fish jumping and the frog's chorus. We provide you with guide books, maps and local information.

Take out the little boat for a paddle round the island, or just drift and relax on the raft listening to the frog's chorus and the fish jump.
Ecologically a stay in a cabin generally has a low carbon impact and this is one is no different. It's built from locally grown and milled timber, and many reclaimed materials, and mostly furnished with junk shop gems. Waste is recycled and eco-friendly cleaning products are used wherever possible. Fuel for the fire is all from our own woodland. We provide lots of extras so you can travel light, such as bed linen, a few basic food essentials and organic toiletries.
