Eco Garden Lodge Retreat

Eco Garden Lodge Retreat

​This was a most amazing experience - not only the build of the new Eco Garden Lodge Retreat, but the opening ceremony was truly enlightening.

Without going into too much detail, the day involved many things, including various ceremonies where a representative religious leader from almost every religion imaginable played their part. The inspiration emanating from everyone there was humbling and thought provoking.

The Asha Centre is an incredible haven set in the beautiful Forest of Dean, and aims to promote peace and spirituality. It also a stunning venue for weddings, conferences and courses. We built their new Eco Lodge - a bespoke garden lodge down at the end of their garden. The whole team came away feeling that this is a very special place, run by very special people and we were privileged to have been involved in this project.

The garden lodge is to be used by visiting local school children, teenagers from across the world who spend time at the centre, visiting individuals and groups who will simply use the space as peaceful spot to "be" in. The garden building can be used as a summerhouse - with its three sets of double doors, fitted with glass to bring in all the light. The garden lodge is insulated with sheep's wool and created from timber from sustainable sources. It has a large set of steps leading up to its front - a wonderful spot to sit and while away the hours.

With its sweeping roof and idyllic location, this must be the perfect solution to finding that special hideaway space... I know that I could spend hours there.
