Forest Ark


The Forest Ark is a unique building: a small Eco-lodge providing comfortable guest accommodation near the existing buildings. It is completely zero-carbon: heating and hot water from solar panels and a state of the art high-efficiency wood-fired boiler, using logs from the wood. You can also cook on a wood-fired range. Electricity is provided by photo-voltaic panels. The building is fully off-grid, using rainwater harvested from the

Forest Ark Interior roof, to meet water needs. It is low-impact, with minimal use of concrete, work done by local labour and timber almost entirely from Hazel Hill wood.

The accommodation consists of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one of each with full access for the disabled and their carers): in total around 90 square metres.

The many guests who have already stayed there have all praised its style and comfort.
