Last week we visited my father down in Devon, having grown bored of the usual places to stay, we cast around for something a bit different. It wasn’t long before Jenny found The Wood Life. Which is essentially 9 acres of woodland in the middle of a massive field, with a big tent and a few other niceties in a clearing in the wood. Well, that turned out to be quite different to a hotel then!

It was hard work in places, but great fun. A few of the Instagram pics I shot are shown below. You can get a feel for the size of tent from the first pic, it is an Albion Canvas (Broken link Tsavao, configured with two bedrooms and a large kitchen/lounge/dinning area. Thankfully the owners have installed a nice wood burning range to heat the place. Although getting up at half six to build a fire was not something I would want to do every day!
