About The Wood Life

The Wood Life is a small family run business that has sprung from a deep love of the woods, nature and the desire to create a unique, private woodland hideaway in beautiful Devon

We want to offer people, children in particular, an opportunity to play safely in the woods as we did when we were kids

Matt and Amanda have a strong connection with woodland life, Matt through his 17 years as a tree surgeon and teacher and Amanda through her work in conservation. Together, with lots of encouragement and ideas from our two girls, we have tried to create a wonderful, fun and sustainable experience of life in the woods. We have both travelled widely and seen some amazing things, but you have to go some way to beat the beauty of a broadleaved British woodland in summer.
