We buy our electricity from Good Energy, ensuring that all our electricity is sourced from renewables. Externally, the lodge is clad with green walls and a green roof to enhance the biodiversity of the site, watered by rainwater harvesting. We have installed a nesting box with internal camera so you can enjoy the secret lives of the local blue-tits as well as the many Red Kites soaring the skies above. The whole building sits on a recycled tyre foundation system and the decking is made from recycled plastic and rice husks. The lodge looks out over open fields in a rural setting but only 2 miles from the nearest town of Wallingford and 15 miles from Oxford and Reading. It offers the perfect location for walking and cycling in the Chilterns that have an unrivaled network of bridleways and footpaths. You can literally walk all day without seeing another soul if you wish. The 87 mile Ridgeway National Trail is less than one mile away and runs along the mysterious 'Grims Ditch' in this particular section. There's even summer canoeing on the Thames 3 miles away. You can explore the local castle in Wallingford which was where William the Conqueror first crossed the River Thames to march onto London. If walking or cycling is not your thing, we are also right in the middle of Midsomer Murders country and the village of Ewelme (with the Oldest continually functioning Church School in England, founded in 1437 and a set for the film Les Miserables) all for you to explore. Then there's Henley with its world famous Royal Regatta and art & music festivals only 10 miles away. There are many gastro pubs throughout the entire area that serve excellent dishes and local beers. However, if you prefer to eat in, we can provide local organic food all sourced from within 2 miles. We have bikes available on request from £5 per person per day (please let us know in advance of your stay) and can arrange a taxi to pick you up from the local train station (Cholsey) or bus stop (Lewknor). There's always something going on close by and here's a few examples: Wallingford Regatta Sunday 5th May 2019 Wallingford Car Rally Sunday 12th May 2019 Braziers Park Wood Festival 17th - 19th May 2019 Wallingford Rugfest Music festival 21st - 23rd June 2019 Henley Royal Regatta 3rd - 7th July 2019 Henley Festival 10th-14th July 2019 Rewind Festival Henley Fri 16th - Sun 18th August 2019More

About the neighbourhood
The area is steeped in history with numerous bronze age hill forts spread throughout the chalk landscape. The last 1,000 years has seen the area's architecture strongly governed by the widespread use of brick and flint in building works. In addition to the hill forts, there are many later archaeological sites demonstrating the areas violent past. At Dorchester, there are the remnants of a Roman fort. The Saxons followed the Romans and also made it a fortified settlement there. Then there's Wallingford Castle, one of the first Norman castles to be built in England. Although Oliver Cromwell ordered the demolition of the castle, there' still some parts of the walls remaining and the grounds are landscaped to perfection. Wallingford museum contains models of the reconstructed castle plus ...
How to get there
The River Rapids service between Henley and Oxford via Wallingford stops at the end of our lane (about a 5 minute walk to the lodge). The Oxford Tube bus service which runs from Oxford to Victoria station in London via the M40 motorway stops at Lewknor which is only 6 miles away. There are local taxis that can collect from there or alternatively take the scenic off-road walk to us via the Ridgeway/Icknield Way. Why not bring your bike on the train and cycle to us?
