Josh has extensive knowledge in living off the land, introduced to the natural world by his dad, who taught him how to recognise trees by their bark, and birds by their calls.

The Estate

Our 300 acre Estate has plenty to explore through our wildflower meadows and ancient forests.



Stargazing

Play

Children (and some adults) love to run and play in our Woodland Kingdom Adventure Park. Made from reclaimed natural timber, it’s a child’s dream nestled amongst the forest with slides, ropes and plenty of space to get your knees muddy. We even have a secret Swing Park for you to enjoy in the sunshine.

Stargazing

Stargazing

Tucked between 2 of only 18 designated Dark Sky Reserves around the world, we enjoy heavenly panoramas of starry nights which are protected nocturnal environments. To capture these exceptional views, 16 dwellings benefit from stargazing ceilings for you to stop, and simply look up.

Bird Watching

Bird Watching

On our beautiful piece of land, we enjoy a range of species of trees, and are home to a wide variety of flying friends. From Owls to Bullfinches to Buzzards, we can delight you at almost every turn with a new feathered surprise, all you have to do is stop and listen for their call.
