“It’s hard to over sell this listing. Because it’s completely unbelievably stunning. ‘Off grid’ living doesn’t sound luxurious – but I assure you the ark is the vision of beauty – with wooden floors and fixtures; a beautiful veranda – comfy beds and compost toilets that are … normal toilets but just with sawdust! ( I’ve experienced festival compost loos and these are a lot more pleasant) The ark is in a beautiful, unbelievable setting. A stunning private woodland. With pond. And deer. And rabbits. And fire circles. And flowers. And streams. We went to escape London after several months lockdown. It did not disappoint. Fires every night. Our two boys loved the freedom of the wood. We also did a forest school session ( extra) with one of the leaders and would thoroughly recommend. This is a very special place. If you get the chance to go – take it.” Lotte, April 2021.

“This wood is a special place of stillness where you can reconnect with nature, yourself and your family without the distractions of the internet and tech. We were lucky with the weather and were able to eat outside and cook on the campfire. Our kids (teenager and pre-teen) loved the watching the myriad bird species that came to eat at the bird feeders hanging right outside the big windows. The cabin itself is a beautiful space to be in, although the first night was freezing (in April) once we got the burners going to capacity. After that, it was fine!” Sheena, April 2021.

“Our second visit to this magical place was just as good as the first… But with added bluebells!!! This is the perfect getaway from our busy lifestyles. The lodge has everything you need including a well stocked kitchen, spacious lounge area with the heat of the log burner to keep you cosy, and comfy beds. I would definitely recommend staying here, either to stay in the lodge and woods or as a base to visit Salisbury and the surrounding area. You will be warmly welcomed and then left to your own devices. We will be coming again!” Paul, May 2021.
