What are bothies and bunkhouses?

Heddon Orchard Bothy, Devon

What is a bothy?

Bothies offer stripped back accommodation in remote locations. Close to walking trails and national parks, they’re a great option for walkers and people who want to get away from it all. Simple brick or stone structures, bothies offer a 'camping with walls' experience. There's usually no electricity and water often comes from handpumps. All of our bothies are self-clean and do not include caretaking

What is a bunkhouse?

For those that want to enjoy the great outdoors without having to give up all the comforts of home, our bunkhouses provide simple, self-catering accommodation for large groups. Set in beautiful locations, they sleep between 6 and 48 people. Most bunkhouses have kitchens, spacious living and dining areas, dormitories with bunk-beds, showers, electricity and heating.
