The Woodsman’s Wash-Up / Woodland life requires the most ultimate of conveniences and that is exactly what you’ll find hidden amongst the trees at The Woodsman’s Wash-Up.


Elcombe Copse has two bathrooms which are found at The Woodsman’s Wash-Up. Each have a proper WC, sink and gorgeous hot shower. In each bathroom we provide loo roll, Bramley hand wash and hand towels. The bathrooms are lit with candles at night so take a torch with you after dark. A little tip for a hot shower: If two of you are showering at the same time the water won't be as hot as it would otherwise but it's still nice and warm. Best to use one bathroom at a time for piping hot showers!


We provide all the equipment you will need to cook, eat, drink and make merry over the course of your stay. Fresh coffee, tea, sugar and biscuits can be found in the pantry which is in the wood a short walk away from the main shelter. All this cooking and eating will naturally result in a spot of washing up! The pantry has a butlers sink with piping hot water on demand and also has two gas hobs for tea and coffee making.

Just got back from the wedding (of which we were the stag party) and had loads of guys telling me it was one of the best weekends ever, definitely due in a big way to being in such an amazing location. The perfect place for a private party, it feels like there’s no-one around for miles! Piers and Sophia were really helpful organising the whole thing, it felt personal and thoughtful throughout. I’m definitely going back!
