Come to Wallops Wood Cottages and enjoy some creative and fun experiences!

We are all about slowing down at Wallops Wood Cottages.  Wallops Wood is about finding your slow button: relaxing in the beautiful Hampshire countryside, recharging those batteries with quiet time, refreshing your mind and body with some swimming, revitalising your lungs and mind with walking and cycling in our stunning Meon Valley, in the South Downs National Park.

Making with your hands

Finding your slow is also about discovering or even reacquainting yourself with simple things like baking, cooking, painting, smelling flowers and making things with your hands. It's that satisfying feeling that grabs you and takes you somewhere happy, fun, thoughtful and relaxing. Our experiences are all about this - for adults and children alike.

Local Artisans

From seasonal jam making to using essential oils in creating your own natural perfume, our experiences are all offered by Hampshire people, who have perfected their craft over the years and live in our rural community.

We will add more experiences over time to this page, so keep checking back with us! From country pursuits to crafts, to food and wine tasting and making, farm tours to midnight picnics and star gazing. We are organising bushcrafting for families, children's activities and more, we will ensure that there is something for everyone right here at Wallops Wood to delight, entice and amuse whilst you stay with us.

"We have had a fantastic stay at Wallops Wood and can’t thank everyone enough for their hospitality."

"Dear All,

Just wished to inform you that we decided to depart Glenside this evening to avoid the Monday morning rush back to the city. We have had a fantastic stay at Wallops Wood and can’t thank everyone enough for their hospitality.

We were amazed following our arrival at the amount of thought that had gone in to the provisions and personal touches at the cottage. Every time we thought “No, they wouldn’t have provided that...”, there it was, tucked away in a drawer or cupboard, just waiting to be discovered!

Any issues were dealt with quickly and efficiently with a ‘can do’ attitude. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and eager to please. I only managed to ascertain the names of Chris and Fran, whom were both extremely helpful, but every point of contact with staff was a positive experience. Max’s tag (what a wonderful touch!) has been returned to the envelope & placed back in the dog bed/basket).

Thank you again for a wonderful holiday experience. In the meantime, please forward this email to whomever needs to know what a fantastic team they have - not least of all Emma whom has indulged me in answering my continuous questions in the run up to our arrival! Kind regards, Rachel & family "
