Enjoying the Simple Things in Life

For many of us, a holiday can often be the only time we get to really switch off from the busyness of our daily lives, whether it be a busy family life or work life.

We are advocates of a slower, simpler life and encourage our guests to do the same; take the time to relax and unwind with family so you return home rested and refreshed with a smile on your face 😀 You can enjoy many of the simple things in life during your stay at Wallops Wood and we have set out to help you with this from the moment you walk through the door!

Cosying Up on the Sofa

Our cottages all have wood burners installed making for an instant cosy feeling, plus the underfloor heating to warm your toes on those cooler days. There’s nothing better than an invigorating walk in the countryside and returning to a warm, cosy cottage and snuggling up on the sofa! Not forgetting a cup of tea and a slice of the homemade cake that is included in your welcome pack 🍰☕️

Walking in the Countryside

Part of enjoying the simpler things in life means enjoying nature when you’re out walking. Stopping and taking in the scenery, looking around you and noticing all the wildlife getting on with their daily lives. When you actually stop and notice these things it makes you realise how nature just gets on with it whether we’re here or not. Watching the birds and listening to their song is all you need to make your day!

There are many walking routes you can take directly from the cottages without having to take the car. You can slow down and take as long as you want, there are no deadlines when you’re on holiday…

Relaxing in the Hot Tub

Evenings at Wallops Wood are a time for chilling out and relaxing after a day out. And there’s no better way to do that than in your own lovely warm hot tub. Being outside in the evening allows you to take in the sunset and amazing views around us. After dark you can listen to the wildlife; we’re privileged to have many owls living in nearby woods, it’s wonderful to hear their calls at night. And if it’s a clear evening, gazing at the stars in awe and enjoying what nature has given us is quite magical 🦉🌟 We’re in a Dark Skies International Reserve, so make the most of the starry night skies while you’re here.
