Sponsor a Room in the Eco Lodge

April 30th 2021

We are in the final stages of our eco retrofit of the South Downs Eco Lodge and we are inviting you, our wonderful supporters, to help dress and equip the new rooms, with many levels of sponsorship to match any budget. When finished the new wing will provide a further eleven new B & B rooms. All will be en suite with double rooms, twin rooms, triple and a family room.

Each room is themed with a native tree from our woodland. Using sustainability principals we are choosing or making art and furnishings from natural, sustainable or recycled resources, which makes each room unique.

Your sponsorship will be used for a range of projects and purchases. You can express a preference for a room to contribute to or sponsor. If you donate £2000 then you will become the sole sponsor of a room of your choice. No matter how large or small we would love to hear from individuals, businesses or organisations.
