If you’re looking for a relaxing break, whether it is a walking break or just a leisurely getaway, the Clophill eco lodges are for you. Set in a woodland copse, half a mile up a private track, it is hard to believe you are only an hour away from central London.
Our eco lodges are laid out in a horseshoe shape allowing you to relax in peace, on your own secluded balcony or the central lawn with friends. There are stunning views in both directions. Four of the five lodges provide family-friendly accommodation and the fifth contains an activity room, breakfast area and and kitchen.
Three of the residential eco lodges can accommodate four people and are split into two separate sleeping quarters with an adjoining shower room and W.C. making it perfect for families, couples, groups or singles. The fourth has two separate bedrooms with en suite shower rooms.
All our lodges are bright and airy with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the balconies, allowing you to enjoy the views no matter what the weather.
Our wardens are there to welcome and assist you during your stay. They are able to explain about our activities on offer as well as the independent exploring options and amenities available locally.
We have an accessible eco lodge with disabled facilities based on the same layout as the other lodges and a ‘drive to your door’ car parking space. The adjoining room can accommodate carers, family, friends or just be used as additional mobility space.
We expect that most of our visitors want to enjoy their surroundings and relax or chat to friends about their day. We therefore do not provide televisions in the rooms. We do have WiFi, if guests wish to use their own devices, for which there is a small charge to cover our off-grid costs.
We have a communal area where you can self-cater or bring a take away to enjoy. Our wardens, with prior notice, can cater for breakfast and / or provide packed lunches and there are some superb restaurants and pubs in Clophill and its surrounding villages.
As an eco site, we strive for everyone to use our precious energy wisely. Very high energy-consuming devices such as hairdryers are therefore provided centrally rather than in every room, to control and minimise our carbon footprint. Information about the eco installation and advice on what to consider for your own ‘green’ project is also available.
Our site is to a large extent off-grid, with its own water abstraction borehole, water collection and re-use, waste treatment and ground source heating.
We aspire to be a net contributor to the grid, our power supply supported in future by photo voltaic cells and other technology for micro-generation.
All the eco lodges are specified to have under-floor heating from our ground source heat pump giving an efficient, even warmth throughout. Each lodge also has a spacious hot shower and is comfortably appointed with stunning views of our ancient monument St. Mary’s old church from some aspects, as well as oak woods and a glimpse of the countryside beyond, from the balconies.
Clophill eco lodges’ site is perfectly situated to enable guests to enjoy walking, ‘trek fit’, camp-building, cycling, horse-riding and / or plenty of other outdoor pursuits. One of our partners also offers kayaking, orienteering and archery near to the site so we really can create an activity package perfectly suited to you.
Please see our things to do page for lots more information and intriguing ideas.
We have many short, medium and long-distance walking routes accessible from the lodges. Many of our trails have been designed around special interest themes, such as local birds, heritage or geology.
