About the Course
Turn your phone off and leave technology behind
Set in a beautiful tranquil 40 acre ancient Oak woodland, you will be welcomed with an open fire and a cup of tea. This is a one-day and one-night experience, a chance to leave the crowds and the noise behind and reconnect with nature. This course is aimed at people who want to relax and enjoy the beauty of the woodland and learn some new skills.
You will be exploring a range of skills, including fire lighting techniques, campfire cooking, and knife craft, and learning how to build your shelter which you will be sleeping in that night!
This course is designed to be family friendly, if you wish to bring very young children please let us know when booking. It takes place entirely in the outdoors, and if inclement weather is forecast, or develops, a large tarpaulin will be is set up as a shelter if required.

My son and I spent a night in the woods, we loved it, built our own dens to sleep in, had our own fire to boil our kettle on, we were right next the stream, it was lovely and relaxing, the only noise was the sound of wildlife. It was an amazing experience to sleep out in the woods, looking up through the trees at the stars. Phil made an amazing beef stew on the campfire, and cooked breakfast. We also did some knife craft. Perfect to get away from it all. Thanks Phil.
