Hazel Hill Wood is a beautiful, secluded 70-acre wood and sustainable retreat/education centre, seven miles from Salisbury, which offers unique scope for people to deepen their connection with nature and learn about living renewably. The programme includes retreats, conservation, men’s and women’s groups, and the wood is available for group bookings. The facilities include heated bedrooms and sleeping lofts, indoor group room, camping area, compost loos, good showers and a hot tub.
Hazel Hill has been owned and stewarded by Alan Heeks since 1987. He has led the creation of education facilities and programmes there since 1993, and has co-led many groups there, especially vision quests for teenagers, men’s groups and conservation weekends. In June 2015, Alan gifted ownership of the wood to a new registered charity the Hazel Hill Trust, of which he is currently Chair.
