About Little White Alice’s Eco Arks
Little White Alice is a stunning eco-location in Cornwall, with on site craft activities, an amazing spa retreat and lots of space to explore. Simon and Rosie fell in love with the ‘wild scraggy land' that now encompasses the accommodation here; Little White Alice has since become a recognised wildlife hub and an environmentally sensitive site holding two gorgeous eco-cottages and two beautiful Eco-Arks. The site is continually evolving - in 2015 the Wild Spa arived, perfect for some grownup down time. All of this place is exquisite, with the potential to absorb you and soothe your soul. Enjoy.
There are two Eco-Arks - Uath and Luis. Both are ingeniously designed to make full use of every inch of space - both are bright, welcoming and extremely cosy thanks to your Chilli Billie stove.
This glamping experience asks for no compromise however, the eco-ark is a little like a tardis with every bit of space working to its potential; the open plan living and sleeping area is cosy and includes lots of interesting and beautiful pieces that Rosie is very good at sourcing. Local artisan craftspeople have created an oak kitchen with hand made glass splashbacks, complete with a full size oven and a belfast sink - the full self-catering caboodle to rustle any size family meal you fancy. Both properties have a beautifully designed shower room, both have TV, DVD and wifi.
Uath, the bigger, sleeps four and is perfect for families with up to two children. The sleeping area with king size bed is secreted at one end of the ark whilst an added sleeping pod alongside holds two small single beds will absolutely delight the kids. Luis sleeps two adults and two smaller children comfortably.
Outdoors the fenced garden has a glass covered decking and views to while away an hour with and enjoy a meal outdoors surrounded, in the summer, by herbs and wild flowers. These properties are also dog-friendly so all the family can holiday together.
The Wild Spa
The Wild Spa is simply amazing. You'll find a wood burning hot tub, a wood burning sauna and what's known as the ultimate cold bucket shower! The Sanctuary Room with decking over looking a wild life pond gives you space to recover from said shower! This is the ultimate 'green' relaxation zone and is something you will cherish!
Heaps. Rosie holds craft courses, the 28 acres hold nature trails with wondrous areas to explore and play wildly. Animals live on the farm and are happy to greet new visitors particularly at feeding time. The children can take the friendly goats for a walk, collect their morning egg from the obliging hens and perhaps snatch a kiss from an alpaca! Tango and Zennor, the charming Shetlands, love being groomed and taken for walks - smaller children are also welcome to have a ride on Tango around the farm.
Out & About
Rosie has teamed up with other activity providers so that you have a host of choices including canoeing, outdoor adventure playgrounds, zip-wires, surfing, cycling and nature workshops - there's something for every type of day and every level of energy!
In fact you have direct access to miles of footpaths and cycle trails. Near by Stithians Lake provides water-sports activities, beaches are easily reached should you want a sea-side and sand day. The bustling and interesting town of St Ives with The Tate and galleries, fine restaurants and shops makes for a good day mooching. And of course there are many gorgeous gardens to visit, quaint villages and towns as well as days out attractions for the kids.
Should you wish to have a night alone a baby-sitter can be arranged - speak with Rosie in advance to arrange.
Green Policy Loveliness
As part of their green policy Rosie and Simon invite you to plant a tree at Little White Alice to offset your journey and your general carbon footprint. You may chose from a range of trees from their own nursery during the winter months or if you are visiting in the summer they will plant the tree of your house for you in the new woodland during the planting season.
