You have the land, we have the idea: let's make some money together!

Our story started in 2015 because we knew that there are much more exciting alternatives to traditional hotel accommodation – if we could only dream them up!  Plus, we recognised that travellers these days are hungry for new experiences and things that are out of the ordinary.  Since then we’ve had an intuition or two, and worked tirelessly to create an experience that customers absolutely love, with an industry-leading sales & marketing engine to match.

To coincide with TripAdvisor listing us in their top 1% of accommodation worldwide, as well as “UK Top 25 Hotel for Romance”, and being awarded the FSB Business Innovation Award in 2020, we thought that now would be the perfect time to launch our latest innovation – Woodlands Franchise!

The Woodlands Franchise:

Guaranteed Income

We know the market, and have complete confidence in our offering. At very minimum you will earn £3k per lodge per year.​
