Inspired by Canada, made in Finland and close to the source of the Thames, these cabins offer an escape into nature
To country people Cows are mild,
And flee from any stick they throw;
But I’m a timid town bred child,
And all the cattle seem to know.
I cringe to think that on my recent trip to the Cotswolds I hid behind a tree while walking through a field of cows that were staring at me menacingly. But at least I’m in good company. TS Eliot loved walking in the wolds – his visit to the abandoned manor of Burnt Norton inspired the first poem in his Four Quartets. But his aversion to cows and “their stupid gaze” was so strong that he wrote an entire poem on the subject: The Country Walk ends with a reference to taking “sanctuary in friendly oak or apple tree.”
