We bought Tangier Wood in 2016 and have been working to regenerate it for the past 7 years.  


We do everything as sustainably as possible. 


This includes the way we’ve designed, built and use the facilities at Tangier Wood.


Where possible, we’ve built everything out of our own wood – using trees we’ve coppiced or selected for thinning. Any off-cuts get used for firewood and we use the sawdust and charcoal we generate for our composting toilet – so nothing goes to waste.


We use 100% plant-based soaps and washing liquids in Tangier Wood so no poisons or plastics can seep into our soil and seasonal streams.
