Fisherman's Cabin - Dordogne

Last cache: 17:49:06, Tuesday 27 September 2016

Covert Cabin

Suitable for children aged 5 and over

Not suitable for pets

Kids are welcome at Fisherman's Cabin but because of the lake and other exciting features it's not suitable for under 5's. Pets are welcome by prior arrangement only

An eco-friendly cabin on a private lake in France, filled with crafty curios to inspire you...

Below a 9th century château, eleven kilometers from Woodsman’s Cabin, is a second lake in the midst of oak, chestnut, wild acacia and birch woodland, perfect for wild swimming. Perched on the edge, Fisherman’s Cabin was built with timber from Bob’s sawmill and much love. Inside, there’s a treasure trove of intriguing bits & bobs to keep you busy – from telescopes to microscopes, fishing rods to nature books, art supplies and junk-shop gems.

Solar panels power the electric lights; a hot shower and compost loo are attached to the cabin. The kitchen is fully kitted out, the separate double is comfy and, upstairs, a fun mezzanine twin looks out over the water (good for kids as headroom is restricted!). Hire bikes with no hassle and cycle to the village of Augignac 3km away for fresh croissants, explore the lush, beautiful Périgord Vert area or simply cosy up in front of the wood-burning stove. A challenge for Asterix aficionados: a huge granite menhir, part of an ancient ring of standing stones, hides somewhere in the woods – there’s a real chance you’d be the first guests ever to find it.

Our guests say...

A wonderful slice of paradise where bizarrely time stood still and went past in a blink of an eye. Relaxing, grounding wonderful family time.



Simply great. We had a wonderful time. The area was beautiful, Di made it very easy to find and to get settled in. The cabin was lovely, good facilities, well supplied, all the basics were there for us when we arrived including a bottle of wine on the table. Bedrooms were very comfortable, kitchen had good facilities, the log fire was really affective and kept the cabin very warm. The lake, woods and surrounding area really couldn't be better. We had a very relaxing holiday and cant wait to share the place with the rest of our family.



It was absolutely fantastic - great accommodation and location. We loved absolutely everything about Fisherman's Cabin. It was utterly peaceful and full of joy!


Angela and Dave

Our stay was fantastic. We have stayed at fishermans cabin twice before and so knew what to expect. We love the cabin, the lake, its location and the surrounding countryside. I love getting away from the hustle and bustle of modern life!! The kids like the space to roam in and its a short drive to civilisation!! And last but not least Bob and Diane who have a built a great place for people to come and enjoy and they make you feel welcome. Ten out ten!



For our second visit to the fisherman's cabin, Diane was there to meet us, with the wood burner already lit, so it was a great welcome! The kids were happy to explore the forest with Dexter dog and they spent a lot of time on the raft and whittling wood. It was a complete switch off from the normal routine and as good quality time and relaxing as our first visit. We are already thinking about our next visit.....



"We had a fabulous 6 night stay at Fisherman's Cabin. The cabin was as delightful as it's setting. Di and Bob were brilliant and met us at a local supermarket to ensure we didn't waste time searching for this hidden gem. We followed their car down a track to the most delightful sight... it was enchanting! We are a family of four including two teenagers, it was a great place to unwind and relax in such a tranquil setting. We were blessed with beautiful weather, but the cabin and it's location would be great at any time of the year. A lot of thought has gone into the cabin and it's contents... we couldn't fault it. We were able to have lovely home cooked meals, the kitchen is well equipped and the complimentary bottle of wine and beers in the fridge were a nice touch.  We didn't want to leave!"



"We had a fabulous time. Fisherman's Cabin is in a beautiful location, with it's own private lake and a little raft. We spent so much time on that raft, breakfasting, picnicing, looking up at the clouds in the day and the stars at night. With owls hooting, a kingfisher skimming over the water every day it was sheer heaven. We were bang smack in the middle of the woods  with  tracks and trails (all way marked) we ran and cycled and walked for miles. The Cabin itself is cosy and full of interesting bits and bobs to keep us endlessly occupied. I even did a bit of wood whittling!. We chopped logs, had a roaring fire every night after our evening barbecue and slept in the most comfortable bed lulled to sleep silence! What more can I say? .... Except thank you"



"It was brilliant. Loved the place and the owners were fantastic."



"We really enjoyed it, it was very peaceful and in a beautiful setting. The property had the feeling that the owners had lived there as everything was really well thought out. The welcome wine and beer were a really nice touch. The raft was used all the time by the kids and sitting on the deck in the evening with the lamp burning whilst having a glass of wine was really special."



"We had a fantastic time!  The location of the cabin was idyllic, the cabin itself was beautifully crafted and well equipped, and our hosts were very welcoming."



"We enjoyed it very much, everything was just right, the owners were really helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Everything was laid on when we got there, bikes were there ready to go. In fact, it was a very relaxing holiday, only complaint is we should have booked it for two weeks instead of one."



"A truly unbelievable back to basics experience, we will be back without a doubt"


Julie & David

"We had a wonderful time. The cabin was beautiful and peaceful.   Location was magical and you were in your own world."



"Beautiful lakes, croissants for breakfast and beer and wine ready and waiting in the fridge upon our arrival. Hosts were also incredibly friendly, accommodating and helpful, above and beyond the call of duty. Worsts bits were getting lost in Paris on the way home and getting a speeding ticket on the payage!"
