Forest School

Gather around the fire circle, play games to explore the environment, make nature-based crafts, build a den, work with woodland tools, balance on the rope course, cook on the campfire, enjoy a picnic and take time to enjoy free play in the woodlands. Our Forest School site has a permanent shelter, drinking water, camping toilets and hand washing facilities.

Woodland Stay & Play

An ideal woodland experience to help pre-schoolers develop a love of the natural world. Let your imaginations run wild as you experience lots of investigative, child-led play and crafts. Children will have endless fun making a mess with mud and water, being creative using natural materials, balancing on logs, climbing across ropes and joining in with woodland games. 

Prices and online booking coming soon. 

School Trips

Bring out the best in your group of school children by bringing them to our woodlands and watching them discover the natural world.

Ideal for building confidence, independence and self-esteem, our 'Forest School' themed school trips feature lots of imaginative play and can be tailored to suit your school topics.

A member of our team greets your group on arrival and walks you down to our Forest School woodland. Start the day with a safety briefing around the campfire before the children take part in four Forest School activities lasting around 30-40 minutes each. 

Our 'Forest School' themed school trips are available from 10am to 2.30pm Monday to Friday during term time. For prices and more information please call Suzanne on 07773 816877. Alternatively telephone our main reception on 01509 852525 or email [email protected]
