Hazel Hill is a lovingly managed conservation woodland and retreat centre, 7 miles from Salisbury.

The wood is owned and operated by Hazel Hill Trust, a registered charity formed in 2015. Our aim is to promote wellbeing, resilience and sustainability: for individuals, society and the natural world.

The wood has hosted a huge variety of events and charitable projects over the years, bringing a wide range of individuals closer to nature.

If you’d like to hold your own activity here, we offer beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces to hire. By choosing us you’ll be contributing to valuable charity work, allowing more people the opportunity to connect with the natural world.

We are happy to share that Visit England says we are Good To Go! This is a UK-wide industry standard and consumer mark to reassure our guests visiting the wood that we adhere to Government and public health guidance.

Our new Hideaway building almost complete

We are in the final stages of fitting out the Hideaway, our brand new accommodation block, part-funded by the EU through its New Forest LEADER fund. As well being more accessible, the Hideaway will enable us to accommodate more groups through the Cornoavrius pandemic as the rooms have separate entrances.
