Slow Cabins aims to create a positive impact on people and planet. We do this by organising slow experiences, raising off-grid awareness and regenerative nature building in Europe.
Slow Cabins are ecological cabins (30-40 m²) that are completely self-sufficient in terms of water and electricity. They are located in magical locations in the great outdoors, where you can slow down and disconnect from everyday stress.
The cabins are spread over several regions in Flanders and Ireland at a driving distance of less than two hours from major cities. Fourteen days before your stay, we will send you a brochure with the exact location of your stay.
How much is a stay at Slow Cabins?
You can find the prices on our booking platform. The exact price depends on the season, cabin, location and whether you want to stay in a holiday period, week or weekend.
Our prices range between 175 and 275 euros per night for a two-night stay. If you stay longer than two nights, you get a discount.
Making a Slow Cabins experience happen in the middle of nature is not an easy task. Our professional cleaning team is available every day to prepare the most remote cabins for a magical stay in all weather conditions.
Slow Cabins are completely self-sufficient. That means your hot water, electricity and heating comes 100% from nature. The ten high-tech solar panels generate energy that is stored in the latest home batteries. You will have enough electricity during your stay with normal consumption.
In addition, each cabin has a water tank that can hold 1,500 litres of rainwater. That water is then filtered through three filters so you can shower and cook safely. Afterwards, a natural helophyte bed ensures that the waste water can be returned to the ground clean and safe. This keeps the impact on nature to a bare minimum.
We also provide everything you need and nothing you don’t. This way you can enjoy an unforgettable stay, close to yourself and nature.
How many people can stay in a Slow Cabin?
Slow Cabins are designed for comfortable stays for two people, equipped with a queen-size bed (160×200). Baby cots are available on request in some regions.
Would you like to book a unique experience with some friends or family? Some of our cabins are located relatively close to one another. Contact us for more information.
Can I bring my pet?
In each region, we have a couple of cabins where pets are allowed. Make sure to select that you are bringing your pet when booking your stay.
For hygienic reasons and possible allergies of guests, we also have specific cabins where pets are not allowed so that everyone can safely enjoy a Slow Cabins stay.
When and how long can I stay in a Slow Cabin?
We offer stays from two to four nights. We believe this is the minimum to fully unwind and get away from the craziness of everyday life. We currently operate with fixed check-ins on Monday, Wednesday or Friday from 4pm, as follows:
* from Monday to Wednesday
* Monday to Friday
* Wednesday to Friday
* Friday to Sunday
* from Friday to Monday
To prepare the cabin for your next stay, we ask you to check out by 11am at the latest. You can opt for a late check-out (1pm on weekdays or 5pm on Sundays) when booking.
If availability allows, it is possible to deviate from the above schedule. Feel free to contact us and we’ll see what we can do.
Should I bring my own food?
In the brochure, which you will receive fourteen days before your arrival, you will find a list of local (sustainable) partners where you can go for shopping, buying meals or going out to restaurants.
In some cases, it is possible to book a breakfast for your stay that will be delivered directly to the cabin.
Due to the logistical complexity of Slow Cabins, it is not yet possible to book hot meals today. In the cabin you will find all basic ingredients and kitchen utensils to prepare a tasty meal. There is also a wood barbecue outside.
It is entirely up to you whether you bring your own food, buy something locally in the local shops or go out for a meal in the neighbourhood.
