Stay in a 20m2 geodesic dome in a secluded location in rural Northumberland. With a wood fired hot tub, fire pit, and deck with beautiful views of the pond and surrounding trees, it's a perfect spot to relax, unwind and get back to nature.

The site is completely off grid - water in containers, solar power, and composting toilet.
We believe this makes the site special, offering a unique back-to-basics experience.

The space
Our ethos is to provide a simple but comfortable, tranquil space to 'unplug' from the modern world, with a minimal impact on the surrounding nature so that it can be enjoyed. Please read our description fully before booking to ensure that our dome and site is perfect for you.

Satori dome is located on a working farm alongside a large pond. Spend your time watching wild ducks and swans through the panoramic bay window, or explore North Northumberland before heading back to your site for a soak in the outdoor Japanese soaking tub, whilst star gazing from the deck.

Our dome is set up for 2 people with a double bed and Eve© memory foam mattress (bedding is provided.)
LED battery fairy lights and lanterns provide mood lighting inside and outside the dome at night, and logs are provided for the wood burning stove and fire to keep you cosy when it is cold outside.
Outside on the deck is a gas BBQ for cooking and inside there is a worktop and sink set up for prepping simple meals and washing up dishes (plates, cutlery and utensils provided.)
The deck is covered with an awning to keep you dry if it is raining, although if strong winds are forecast we may take it down.
A kettle is provided for boiling water on the BBQ side-burner, for teas and coffee.
A leisure battery powers a small electric fridge to keep food items cool. The battery also has a USB port to charge your devices.
Our simple off-grid sink is setup with a 25 litre container of fresh spring water and hand pump tap for washing up.

Your outdoor hot tub will be filled with fresh spring water for your arrival. It can be used 2-3 times and takes 2-4 hours to heat up (depending on the weather/season), and will usually stay warm overnight. Please note that in keeping with our ethos of having a low impact on the surrounding nature, soaps are NOT allowed to be used in the tub because of the harm they could cause to the aquatic life of the pond when the tub is drained. We do not (yet) have a shower at the dome, for most people this is not a problem as the hot tub water is clean and does not contain any chemicals, and makes you feel fresh afterwards.

The Eco friendly composting toilet is set back from the dome. Whilst it is basic, please be assured that it is both clean and civilised :)

Other things to note
The dome is located just off the main road A697, however access to the site is through a grass field (sometimes muddy) where you will have to open and close 2 farm gates to get to your dome. Please keep to maximum 10 mph on the track and be respectful to the sheep. We accept no responsibility for damage to vehicles or other property whilst using the site.

Although the site is private and secluded, it is on a working farm and you may notice the odd dog walker/horse rider or farm vehicle pass nearby.

Northumberland, England, United Kingdom

The site is rural (no postcode and the closest neighbours are sheep), but is not far from a main road with easy access to the market towns Wooler (10 mins), Alnwick (20 mins) and Berwick-upon-Tweed (30 mins), as well as the stunning coast (40 mins).
There are plenty of local pubs and shops within an approximate 10 minute drive.
