    The place

    When you hear ‘25 miles from central London’, peace and seclusion aren’t the first ideas that come to mind - yet that’s exactly what you get. One of only four cabins to grace the Broadmead Cut, this part of the River Wey. The only sights and sounds you’re likely to encounter are riverboats chugging past or the occasional moo. Live off the grid for a few days, and float calmly down the river on the small rowing boat or inflatable canoe provided. Or finally show your dog you also take bath-time too, and take a wild swim together. When late afternoon rolls around, dig through your pockets for a coin, and flip for a lazy BBQ on the riverbank or a dog-friendly dinner at The Ripley, local pub with award winning food.
