The Woodsman's Lodge


Follow the winding path along the lake, through the arboretum to The Woodsman’s Lodge.

This is the most luxurious of our tents and is a comfy hideaway where clever craftsmanship meets woodsman’s retreat.

Snuggle in the sheepskin, relax in the rocking chairs and drift off in our driftwood four poster bed, lovingly handcrafted by a local artisan.

Inside each open-plan tent you’ll find all the modern day essentials along with a few of life’s little luxuries including vintage books, nostalgic board games and a few unearthed and repurposed curiosities.

Some extra luxuries
A mini welcome hamper with a bottle of wine & nibbles, Plum & Ashby shampoo, conditioner, hand & body wash in the bathroom. Robes to use during your stay for all adults. Also included in your stay is sufficient firewood as well as a bag of charcoal, a bag of kindling and a box of eco firelighters.

Each tent sleeps up to 6 adults: a double room with a king size bed and a room with a bunkbed (the bunks sleep adults too!) and a cabin bed (also king size) for those curious little travellers. All our beds are wonderfully comfortable with fresh soft cotton sheets & a warm duvet cover.

Your sleep is important to us!

Kitchen & lounge area

Here you’ll find:

  • A large chesterfield sofa
  • Dining room table & chairs
  • Woodburner for heating
  • Full electricity with sockets available in each room
  • A hairdryer is provided in each tent
  • A fully equipped kitchen with gas hobs, microwave combi oven, fridge freezer, wine cooler, dishwasher and crockery & cutlery.

A lovely wood panelled bathroom has clean white fittings, and is adorned with mirrors and plants.


Each tent has a luxurious en-suite bathroom with underfloor heating, heated towel rails, a walk-in shower and a relaxing bathtub. The Woodman’s Lodge supplies each guest with their own bathrobe for that added home from home feel. The bathroom is within the tent so there’s no fear of getting cold feet when heading to the bathroom in the night!

An external view of the tent from the deck, a rocking chair with a soft sheepskin throw is on the left hand side whilst a wicker chair is positioned on the right hand side with a wicked pouffe. The view overlooks the hot tub and the lake.


Outside each tent is your very own private decked area looking onto the wildlife lake. It’s a wonderful place for togetherness and relaxation. The Woodsman’s Lodge boasts its own two tiered decking on its own side of the main lake. This has a beautiful grand vista like no other.

The decks feature:

  • Scandinavian wooden eco-tub
  • Picnic table and benches
  • Barbeque
  • Hearty fire pit with seating made from the timber in the wood itself
  • In between the lakes you will find our very own meditation stumps cut by our woodsman that peers over the lake and is perfect for early risers or dusk dwellers
