The Earth House  is a residential building which accommodates 40 people in 2 large dorm rooms (one sleeping 18 and one sleeping 14) and 2 4 bedded en-suite leader rooms. The building also has a large dining/ activity room, large kitchen and separate first aid room. There is a handy boot room to leave and dry all of the outer wear and two large bathrooms including showers.

Access to the building is generally through the boot room where boots and wet clothes may be left to dry before users move via the hallway to the main lounge/diner and kitchen. The main room can be divided to provide a smaller lounge space, really cosy with the wood burning stove.
