Relax, unwind & connect with nature in a newly hand crafted ark in the heart of the wild Purbeck Jurassic coastline. With easy access to the Corfe Hills, this is the perfect spot for anyone who wants a bit of tranquility & incredible walking routes nearby. Emerse yourself with peace and quiet of a woodland overlooking beautiful fields with local wildlife as your neighbours.

The space
The ark is located in a secluded woodland deep within the Purbeck Valley between Corfe Castle & Swanage. This private woodland is located at the bottom of our house plot and the area is dedicated to a couple rentals.
The ark itself is Scandinavian inspired, built to a very high standard and it features a beautiful decking perfect for an evening glass of wine in front of the chimenea
Inside the ark is a well equipped kitchenette, dining table & double bed for ultimate comfort. The kitchenette includes a double ring electric hob with saucepan & frying pan, mini fridge, kettle, cafetiere and toaster, perfect for basic cooking. Even better, a bbq is provided, just bring coals to cook outside enjoying the views.
The ark & all it's fittings were newly built for Spring 2021. Outdoor seating, a firepit & logs are provided for those cosy nights in.
A private bathroom is situated in a separate shepherd's hut 10metres away and will be yours throughout your stay with private keys. The bathroom is very modern and features a power shower & is heated throughout the colder months.
Well behaved dogs are welcome, just bring their beds, towels & bowls. Please note we do have our own animals on site so depending on their temperament they might need to stay on a lead in the outdoor space.

Hi, I'm Nathan, a stonemason & local Purbeckian from Swanage currently living in Poole with my wife Steph . I've grown up loving the outdoors and I'm a lover of extreme sports. My family still live in the Purbecks and we're creating all these amazing retreats on our private land spread across the Purbeck where we grew up. We have been hosting since 2018 and loved it so much that we'll be continuing to expand so watch this space!
