Cabin for sale - Lizard Peninsula Cornwall

Friends of Retrouvius are selling their wonderful cabin built over the last 5 years on the edge of a beautiful woodland on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall.

"Sitting in a 3 acre meadow in a beautiful spot on the
edge of a 4 acre woodland it leads down to the Helford river and Tremayne quay. An amazing project … restoring the land and woods … felling the trees and building with our friends we felled 48 trees (douglas fir) down the hill from the meadow under the guidance of our friend Hakan from Sweden (… they were seasoned and then worked into the old swedish shape for cabin building (flat walls not the rounded log american style)
Walls are 6 inches thick and chinked with sheeps wool the cabin aesthetic is inspired both by scandanavian heritage and the arts and crafts movement".
