Marthrown of Mabie features a Tipi, a Yurt ideal for 'Glamping' in southern Scotland, a Bunkhouse, Camping with views over the Lake District and our famous Roundhouse – come and take a look around; you will find simply - something different!
For a slightly different experience how about chilling out in a native American style Tipi. In the Tipi there are 4 mattresses. It has a wood burning stove, rugs and 4 bean chairs as well as all the cooking and dining equipment you will need. There is a 2 ring stove in a separate cooking shelter about 15-20 meters away. It also has a BBQ and picnic table and use of the outdoor fire pit. All you need to bring are pillows, sleeping bags and torches! Lighting is from LED battery lights - sorry there is no mains power but it is possible to charge phones,laptops etc down here at the centre. There are 2 dry composting loo's and a hot shower on site about 40 meters from the tipi or there are conventional ones for you to use at the bunkhouse. For family groups it gives children the chance to play freely (the way we used to!) before the days of Play Stations, mobile phones and fashion!
