Jack’s Alt-Stays | Alternative Eco-Cabins – Coming Early 2022

Alternative Eco-Cabins

Our Eco-cabins are the next generation of accommodation for those seeking a premium and relaxing escape.

Gone are the days of carbon-churning hotels, dusty B&Bs, and basic glamping pods.

We think of our Eco-cabin concept as being at a crossroads where quirky interior design and smart-home tech meets eco-consciousness in a stunning island setting, creating an unforgettable travel experience.

We’re launching in early 2022.

FAQs

We’ll be setting up our cabins near Millport on the Isle of Cumbrae, which is known as Scotland’s “Most Accessible” Island. The exact location is top secret for now, but all will be revealed soon.

Cumbrae is only an 8-minute ferry journey over from Largs on the North Ayrshire coast. Here’s how to get there.

We’re working towards launching our business in early 2022. Our prototype cabin’s build is nearing completion!

Sign-up to be the first to hear about progress updates, our official launch, and for the chance to win free stays!

Absolutely. We love dogs!

Some of our cabins will be dog-friendly and some will be pet-free, to suit everybody.

The environment is at the heart of every decision we make.

The Eco-Cabins will be built locally using sustainable materials and will be powered by 100% renewable energy. We’ll also have 10 trees planted for every booking made.

Here’s our Climate Action Plan.

Yes! Some cabins will have a wood-fired hot tub, and there will be options without.

Here’s what we’re all about

We are two cousins with a shared passion for adventure, quirky stays, and the environment. We believe in challenging the norm; in doing things a bit differently.

We’re on a mission to shake up Scotland’s tourist accommodation game with our unique Alternative Eco-Cabin concept.

Coming to Millport, Isle of Cumbrae, Early 2022.

Our Eco-Cabin Build Journey

So, IT BEGINS – we’re officially on the road to our first site of Alternative Eco-Cabins. How exciting!… but also kind of terrifying. All I can really say is, we’ve got a hell of a long way to go. As I write this, it’s currently the 3rd of May 2021 and things are just starting …

Deep Dive: The Alternative Eco-Cabin Concept

It’s Alternative and it’s Eco. I’m taking you on a deep dive into our Next Generation Tourist Accommodation concept, covering what it’s all about, how it’s evolved, and how we got to this point.

PLANNING PERMISSION: GRANTED ✅

Adam and I are absolutely over the moon to share with you that our planning application has been approved (with conditions).

This is another huge step forward towards launching our tourist accommodation family business in Millport.

This is also now an opportunity for us to directly engage with the community of Millport to make sure our development is right for them too.

Now that planning permission is secured, we’ll be progressing with the site preparations, kicking off cabin 2’s build, and working towards launching our business in early 2022.
