Best suited to the single or more mature traveller, the Little Room In The Sandbag House, McGregor, is private, has its own entrance, adjacent private bathroom and access to an outside shower.
The Sandbag House is an alternative technology house. It has a wood and iron skeleton filled with sandbags to form its exterior and a drywall interior making it better insulated than conventional building techniques.
The internal construction of drywall with wooden floors and ceilings, means one hears inhabitants move around – upstairs and down – so the house is not the quietest. Sound does carry, and everyone hears each other moving about, with the odd thing (usually a cat) going “bump in the night”. There is a panel heater and hot water bottles to ward off the winter cold, and a fan is provided for those hot summer nights.
The Little Room opens on to the veranda where there is a table and chairs where weather permitting, guests can relax and read. Robes are are provided for trips to the outside shower and adjacent bathroom where basic toiletries are provided.
The makings of tea and coffee are provided, as are robes for access to the adjacent bathroom and outside shower. Guests have exclusive access to a small fridge on the veranda.
Breakfast by prior arrangement, at an additional charge, as can other meals when village restaurants are closed.
Enquire when you book.
