The Tiny House with BIG purpose, to live more simply.
We offer a Tiny House living experience within our permaculture demonstration site. Part of the adventure is to taste the freedom of homegrown food on your door step, grown the natural way in a Forest Garden while enjoying panoramic sea views yet living simple and conscious of the environment.
For the more committed enthusiast we can offer greater involvements of the site processes and procedures.
Come find your own simple life, while enjoying the magic of this special location, we look forward to meeting you.

GREY WATER RECYCLING
All grey water is re-used for irrigation and therefore we prefer the use of natural soaps that are not detrimental to the soil. We make and provide natural soap, and natural toothpaste is also available.

We provide free mountain bikes to explore the local area, Reeth Bay is just down the lane and is excellent on a dropping tide. A secluded sandy bay with few people thanks to the abundant rocks limiting access. At low tide a protected lagoon develops to the East which is great for snorkelling, kayak or sup. St. Catherines lighthouse is to the West which is open to the public and offers great views.
