“…cosiness and comfortable conviviality…”
Now, it may seem odd at the height of summer to be posting a Natter accompanied by a snowy picture of Marthrown of Mabie (Dumfries) Bunkhouse. The thing is though, that this picture made me think of Hygge. Hygge’s that danish concept that a lot of people are talking about at the moment. I had to go and look it up in the dictionary. What it means is “A quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.”
So anyway, the picture is of their sauna. That’s right. And, together with wood burning stoves, spring-water hot tub and peaceful forest setting, I think we’re getting close to a British sense of Hygge.
The accommodation is in their Forest Bunkhouse , as well as a Tipi , two Yurts , and wild camping area with stunning views over to the Lake District. But what really grabs the attention is their famous Iron Age Roundhouse. So there are plenty of intriguing ways to settle down in ‘cosiness and comfortable conviviality’.
