The Communal Area has a number of seat/ small tables, a rustic bushy Table seat next to a clay oven to make food prep a bit easier then doing it on your lap, The fire pit has a concrete base.

Hi Guys Sorry I'm going to take myself off of the list for the Bow making, I am really not sure if I can make the weekend and if it's as much as Stu is saying I'm not prepared to pay that amount on the off chance that I will be there.
If I can make the weekend I will still be going but as usual I wont know until a few days before hand.

Hi all, I've been looking around at material costs, and I believe I can do this for about £10 maybe less a head. Invoices will be available to see if required. Bearing in mind that the Bhutanese bow making course at the moot, is £55 a head, I think we have a bargain. Still two places to fill.
