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.

Humans return to the woods

It comes as a huge relief to us to be able to be re-starting human activities as Hazel Hill. I say human, as the trees and the wildlife have been busy in our absence. But as a charity that promotes well being, sustainability and resilience through contact with nature, it is much easier to do this by bringing people to the woods – all in step with the Government’s latest guidance on Covid-19.

How can I get involved?

  • Join in one of our volunteer conservation days, nurturing the wood and letting the wood nuture you.
  • Book a household holiday at Hazel Hill – the Oakhouse and the Forest Ark are now available for long-weekend bookings.
