Self-Catering Accommodation, Platbos Forest
Situated nearby to one of Platbos Forest’s most ancient trees - a Wild Olive of over 800 years old - the Old Olive Cabin offers you a wonderful opportunity to retreat for a weekend (or more) of peace and tranquillity in this magical forest.
Old Olive is the perfect “get away” for couples or a small family of four. Like the Forest Camp and Honey Bee Suite, Old Olive is totally off-grid. The cabin is situated right in the forest, and to minimize impacts to this sensitive environment, the cottage is accessed by a short, beautiful walk through the forest.
