Barn Owl Hut - The Lakes


Situated at the far end of the Lakes site, Barn Owl is our largest hut. With a double bed, two single bunks, and colourful bunting decorating the hut’s interior, Barn Owl is ideal for families. The hut is set in a clearing, providing a secluded spot for an evening BBQ. There is ample opportunity for wildlife watching across the meadow, lake and in the woods.
