Please note that due to ongoing forest operations, we will be unable to open in the Autumn as previously planned.
As soon as the area is cleared and we have made the woodlands a safe and inviting place for you to visit, we will publish our opening times and price list.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Choose from a variety of activities including: den building, willow weaving, fire lighting, exploring nature, learning how to whittle and cook simple items over a campfire.
We will be offering sessions on Saturday mornings, during school holidays and half terms for children to spend time exploring the woods. They can choose to do a range of activities including: den building, learning how to whittle, identify flora and fauna, learning how to light a fire or cook over a camp fire
If you are educating your child at home or you have children under the age of 5, then why not include a session in nature's classroom. We will be offering separate parent and toddler and home education sessions on a weekly basis. We can explore any aspect of the curriculum within the woodlands or simply give your child the freedom to learn through play.
Why not spend a special day in the woods - a birthday, festival, passing an important exam or just because you want to get together and celebrate!
We can offer photos of your special day and a unique birthday experience.
There is a growing realization that a positive, connected relationship with nature leads to pro- environmental attitudes and well being benefits . (Lumber, Richarson & Sheffield, 2017)
Take time to rest and recoup in the woods; this last year has taken its toll on everyone, particularly healthcare and care home key workers. Take time out to enjoy a hot drink around the open fire and have a go at a range of nature based activities, including forest bathing, willow weaving, whittling or chill in a hammock.
Spending time in nature is a great way to stay healthy and relax. The ancient woodland site also provides a beautiful setting to spend time with friends or meet new people. Take time to explore the fantastic fungi and flora in the forest or take a mindful stroll in the trees.
There are many who find themselves confined to their homes due to age, health or a lack of social support, in particular people living with dementia. We would like to support you, along with your carers and can offer a range of sessions in the woodland to enjoy nature including mindfulness, sensory walks and forest bathing.
