The Octagon is set in 2.2 acres of beautiful private woodland. It is visually secluded, and all yours for your group to explore and enjoy. The land is surrounded by open fields and farm tracks yet you are 15 mins walk from all town centre amenities.
The price shown is for the Octagon with 8-10 guests only.
For additional accomodation, a large touring caravan, which sleeps 4 in two double beds, can be rented separately. (£50 a night) The caravan is heated, has a camping toilet, and a room divider for privacy.
The wood fired hot tub and sauna is an extra £250 for up to 3 days, we will always try to light it early and get the hot tub upto temperature for your arrival.
The main space is 7.9m (26ft) at its widest diagonals, and 3.6m (12ft) high at its central dome. The furniture can be arranged to provide an open space for dancing, yoga, meditation, group work or a meeting etc, or for socialising around the woodburner. The Clearview woodburner has an 8Kw output, and the whole building is fully insulated, so it's hot enough to keep you toasty warm even in prolonged sub zero temperatures. The small open plan kitchen has a 4 ring gas hob with a grill and not very powerful oven, fridge, microwave and a belfast sink with hot and cold water.
A small double sofa bed is here for guests 9 and 10. ( Please note, although there are roller blinds to the windows, we can't stop the morning light shining through the central dome light which some people may find uncomfortable, especially in summer. We provide eye masks, or bring your own.)
There are two folding tables, table cloth, and 12 folding chairs for indoor banquets. We have provided a list of numerous takeaways who will deliver for a small charge. We can also arrange to have a pop up restaurant arrive for a more culinary alternative. ( See Other Notes)
There are two wings to the building, the larger has a compact bunk room with two sets of bunk beds, and a small bedroom with kingsize bed. Both rooms have sliding doors to the outside. The smaller wing has a very compact bedroom with kingsize bed and a bathroom with toilet, sink and shower.
There is an additional outdoor composting toilet made from recycled materials with rainwater harvested hand wash sink and solar powered lighting.
Outside there is a large potbellied stove and cushioned seating for your comfort. There is also a large banquetting table and benches along with a further covered seating area.
An entrance leads to the lawn and decking area with more seating and outdoor furniture.
Further into the site there is a Celtic ogham tree circle for your magical ceremonies or simple tree and shrub identification! There is a fire bowl for use by arrangement.
There's a trampoline and some toddler toys in a play space and a path round the woods.
In Conifer Corner you will find the 'bed in a shed' available free to use if you book the caravan. It has a woodburning stove and double bed, its for the more hardy campers! ( bring your own bedding)
Accrington was once an ancient forest used by royalty for hunting trips. During the industrial revolution large areas of terraced housing were built to house cotton workers which still gives the town its milltown character.
For historical days out locally there is Helmshore textile museum, Clitheroe Castle, Houghton Tower, Salmesbury Hall, Gawthorpe Hall and Townley Hall.
For hystericaldays out there is the Jumpworks trampoline venue. Holmes Mill brewery Clitheroe and outdoor zip line and other experiences at Outdoor Elements, Simonstone.
For culture vultures there is Accrington's Haworth art gallery with its Tiffany glass.
Footy fans can take a trip to see Accrington Stanley one of the founders of the football league. The town has a mixture of pubs and clubs and restaurants. We recommend Grants Bar with its own micro brewery, and The Tiger Lounge cocktail bar both 10 minutes walk downhill at the bottom of Sandy Lane.
Walkers can take the track up Sandy Lane and in 45 mins find yourself on the top of Celtic named Hambledon Hill with views across Lancashire to Blackpool tower on a clear day. For a quick stroll enter Tag Clough which locals call Bluebell Wood, an area of old coppiced woodland with a stream just 200m from our land. There is also the Coppice area, donated to Accrington, by Robert Peel founder of the police force, which has a network of footpaths leading to a monument with great views over the town and surrounding area.
