We're delighted to announce the new and very beautiful Planted Cabin at River Cottage, where we hope you will enjoy your stay as you experience the mental and physical health benefits of sleeping in nature under the stars and cold water immersion.
The stylishly designed space is furnished with nature in mind at every turn. Beautifully crafted pieces including an armchair, two dining chairs and side tables by award-winning British brand Another Country, Naturalmat's 100% organic natural mattress and an elegant mirror by Marque Sussex.
Shelving and other sustainable accessories are provided courtesy of our friends at The Snow Sheppard.
For added comfort, Gather have provided a 100% woolen blanket made from the finest natural pure wool while hot water bottles fashioned from off-cuts of linen are provided by Delaney Design.
Decorative lighting by Joseph Giles and Thermafleece natural hemp insulation are used in the cabin, whilst Tala's brand-new low energy portable lamps offer an outdoor lighting solution for guests. A woodburning stove inside the cabin will further ensure you stay warm if the nights turn chilly.
All the materials used in the cabin design by Out of the Valley are sustainably sourced and designed to minimise impact on the environment and for a fully off-grid living experience, Planted's mobile cabin is complemented with a waterless, compostable toilet unit provided by Waterlesstoilets.
A cold outdoor shower facility is provided, designed by Planted and built by Fern Carpentry, with beautiful corrugated hemp side panels by Erthly, enabling you to experience the scientifically proven health benefits of cold-water immersion, highlighted on hit BBC1 show Freeze the Fear with Wim Hof.
We hope you enjoy your stay in Planted's cabin at River Cottage HQ; designed for nature.
Hugh says, “I’m so thrilled we are now able to offer a stay at River Cottage that is even closer to nature, and to the values of low impact sustainability that we champion wherever we can. And while you are here you can do what I do every morning and stand under a properly cold shower! Whether you are coming to do a course or enjoy a feast with us, or you just want to chill out for a night or two and enjoy wandering around the farm, I can promise you it’s an experience you’ll cherish"
