Property Description

Welcome travellers :-)

**PLEASE READ**
Room categories are as follows (facilities, activities, breakfast and EVENING DINNER are included in the rates):
PRIVATE SINGLE = PARK YOUR VAN in one of our parking spots
Private Double Bed = Private room with a double bed
Private Double Bed = Cozy caravan with a double bed
2 Standard dorm rooms with 4 resp. 5 beds

We are a vibrant, diverse and friendly travellers' community running a sustainable homestead with organic gardens, cats and chickens. The heart of our community is an old farm house in which we would like our visitors to feel home away from home.

Each day we share a big veggie dinner together, which is included in the rates, and it’s a wonderful opportunity to meet everyone. Some nights we light a campfire which we share stories, experiences, great conversations and music around. Sundays are usually Pizza nights. We have a library full of different books and frequently watch movies together. Our intention is to cultivate a peaceful environment with a focus on learning and sharing.

We run workshops and skill sharing sessions, such as bread baking, upcycling, crafting and organic gardening. You are welcome to join our workshops and learn, or offer one yourself if you have a skill you would like to share with others.

Following the concept ”Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”, we use compost showers, an outdoor fire bath, compost and recycling systems and a bicycle-powered washing machine.

Whether you want to make treats, do yoga, read or relax, the open green space and cozy living areas lend themselves to all kinds of needs and projects.
We are located off the beaten track and a little outside the city centre, but still easily accessible by train.

We look forward to seeing you!! :-)

    Superb

    This place really makes you feel at home. The atmosphere is the best thing about fat cat, the people and staff are all generous and friendly which really creates a sense of community. The food is usually vegetarian but is fully accomodating of vegans and is always super tasty (plus it's included in the price). I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    Very Good

    The Place, an ordinary fairly old rough house and surroundings, contained young people seemed of limited means generally staying for at least a week. Hence a community spirit where one or two were rostered to cook for all the group of residents, both main meal and breakfasts. Lovely youngish 20-25ish people range of nationality, generally alternative life stylers in sloppy clothing welcoming and engaging us older couple. Very comfortable double bed. Enjoyed.

    This place is a joke!!! No locks on any rooms. Generally unpleasant and dirty throughout, with the same bowl of porridge topped up daily for breakfast. We are easygoing people who have stayed in a array of hostels across the world and this is by far the worst, poorly managed place we have stayed. Extremely miss-advertised and photoed. Would not recommend!!
