Moon Valley is set on a cattle farm in the idyllic village of Scaldwell. Love nature? Sit back enjoy the views; from the cattle and horses that come right up to the fence. To Teddy, the resident miniature Shetland pony, who comes and says hello at the drop of a hat.
Our accommodation and facilities are geared towards communal get-togethers sleeping up to 16 (more people? get in touch we may be able to help), with the landscaped mix of cabins and huts set together village-style and focused on a sun-trap patio with a gas-fired barbecue, a fire pit area, and a couple of hot tubs. There’s a nine-acre field beyond which you’re encouraged to think of as your playground for football, rounders, or frisbee — you could even arrange for an archery session or lazer clay-pigeon shooting here if that’s your bag.
The two big bonuses are also all about sociable nights with a group of friends. The Store is a brick-built cooking and eating space, complete with a fully equipped kitchen (rotisserie, anyone?) and a massive chestnut-wood dining table (handmade by host, Fred), while an impressive hexagon-shaped, Scandi-style cabin at the heart of the site allows up to sixteen people to sit inside around a barbecue pit that is literally big enough to roast a pig.. Given all this, low-key parties are definitely on the cards — all we ask is that our guests are respectful towards music levels, and the only sounds you use are from the supplied Echo Dot speaker (which comes with Amazon Music Prime).
When you finally slink away to bed, it’s to modern, furnished cabins with comfy king-sized beds and big sofas that convert to another double. The Blueberry hut — has a separate bedroom and lounge area, as well as its own kitchenette, compost toilet, and gas-powered shower. The other three cabins share facilities in the shiny shower block, where there are two more hot-water showers, two flushing toilets, and a sink and mirror.
We ask all guests to respect the local environment and to leave personal speakers at home. We supply a bluetooth Alexa which is loud enough to enjoy your music, but not loud enough to cause disturbances.
