About Looking Glass Lodge

soak up nature in your own exclusive woodland oasis
Just an hour away from London, set within an ancient woodland in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, you'll discover our biophilically designed eco-lodge. Christened the Looking Glass Lodge due to the full height electrochromic panoramic windows, we have created a space where you can immerse yourself in nature, reduce your stress levels and increase your wellbeing in luxurious surroundings. It’s a perfect hideout for couples seeking a unique space to unwind, or a solo traveller seeking peaceful seclusion. Enjoy wildlife spotting as you walk through surrounding woodland, discover the local area, or simply relax on the deck and snuggle up by the wood burner.

Meet The Owner

We are Rik and Lindsey, and together with our family we live in a converted coach house on the outskirts of the small village of Fairlight. We are lucky enough to live in a peaceful spot on the edge of Mallydams Wood Nature Reserve, which Rik's parents established for the RSPCA in the 1960s. In 2018 we started to think how wonderful it would be if we could share this beautiful location. We had no idea about building a lodge or the challenges we’d face along the way, but we have poured our heart and soul into this place, and we hope our guests feel that when they visit. It has been a long journey of planning, building and paperwork and finally our dream is coming to fruition. Biophilic principles were of utmost importance to us when designing the lodge. Through this, our intention has been to create a closer connection to nature through the way the lodge has been built, using natural resources to create a sense of harmony between the architecture and the natural world. We have worked hard to match luxury with sustainable, green credentials, and new technology. The lodge has been sensitively built by local craftsmen, and inside has a warm and welcoming feel with all the home comforts you could need. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to live where we do and are looking forward to being able to share it.
