About us

We’re Jodie and Jordan, husband and wife owners of Tangier Wood.

 

In 2014 we thought about the things that mattered to us. Being together. Being in nature. Having the freedom to explore, to take on new challenges, grow our thinking, and hopefully make a positive difference. To create a space where if we stick to what matters, good things will happen to us and those around us.

 

It’s taken us on a decade-long journey - from buying a woodland, to moving to the countryside, to leaving our jobs in the Army and in London - to creating Tangier Wood.

 

We love the woodland and always pictured Tangier Wood as a vehicle to provide us and others with more freedom and opportunity to experience, and achieve, new things.

 

The money we earn from working with Army Cadets, Duke of Edinburgh and other groups enables us to carry on working the woodland, keep on doing what we're doing, and support some great causes along the way.
