Don’t miss our family fireworks special, last Sunday of October, Christmas Festive Fun & Easter Egg Hunt extravaganza, plus lots more ‘Go Wild’, stay & play fun during all our holidays & at weekends. Check out the events calendar for full details and dates.
We have created an amazing package of forest school fun combined with the joy of camping. You arrive on Friday evening and gets yourselves settled into your own tent or one of ours, or really upgrade and hire a shepherds hut. Enjoy a fun evening making new friends, playing in the tree house, football on the field or table tennis. Get out the BBQ and fill up your glass with your favourite tipple. You will head into slumber with the sound of the owls in the background and the soft rustling of trees, no lights to hide the stars, just pure country air and the sounds of nature.
At 10am we will will see you at forest school after you have had your breakfast for a day of family fun and fabulous food. Help us cook your lunch, make your own pizza, chop your onions and mould your own burger, we will add hot dogs and beans to this and then you can create you fruit crumble and delicious cake for afternoon tea and, of course, roast your marshmallow. Drinks included.
You will explore all that forest school has to offer from archery to woodcraft, mud kitchen to den building. A wonderful package for all ages and all abilities.
