Olive: Unplugged Cabins

The beautiful ‘Olive’ cabin that you see in the photo is one of a series of cabins built for and in collaboration with the inspiring folks at Unplugged.rest . They available to book and stay in for a digital detox retreat, allowing guests to stay for up to 3 days at a time whilst immersed in nature. Crucially, guests are asked to lock their phone in a box on entry and only use analogue entertainment from then on (think polaroid, cassette player, books!) We have worked to create a range of bespoke furniture pieces for the cabin interiors, so that every detail has been thought through.

Nestled in a woodland glade, the cabin is completely off grid, running fully from batteries, solar panels and wood burning stove, with composting toilet. They provide a real model for how we could live and experience nature in a future low impact rural society – especially when considering the tiny amount of space that needs to be heated for this cabin. The cabins are also built for the future – the whole cabin is completely removable and demountable. The cabins are assembled completely in the factory and lifted into (or out of) position onto removable zero-concrete screw piles.

The best part about these cabins is that you can experience them yourselves! There are currently over 15 to choose from in locations around England, with many more in the pipeline. Check out Unplugged.rest to learn more and book your stay.
