There is also a spacious kitchen, which was fitted in 2013 with a 6-burner range size propane gas cooker, a small gas fridge, storage cupboards, twin sinks and crockery and utensils for at least 24 people. Outside this is a new decked area with walkway to the group room.

Just outside the Oakhouse is an outdoor cooking area including a barbeque.

The Longhouse

The Longhouse, Hazel Hill WoodThe Longhouse was one of our earliest buildings, and has been recently refurbished.  Two sleeping lofts upstairs can accommodate 7 people in total.  On the ground floor, the Library has two single beds and can be used as a small lounge or meeting room.

The Longhouse is heated with a woodburning stove.  It also has a cosy drying room/sauna, and two showers.  There is low-voltage lighting throughout.

The Roundhouse

Hazel Hill Roundhouse external

Roundhouse Hazel Hill WoodThis is a large, covered circular space, diameter 27′ (8.2m), which was completely rebuilt in 2012 with a vaulted roof and no central support pillar. The new entrance takes the spirit of the building deeper into the Wood. With an earth floor, it has a stone fireplace/altar, and is well suited to dancing, rituals and other group sessions.  Can also be used for undercover sleeping.



Our two user-friendly composting loos have received high praise for comfort and pleasant views!
