Nestling on the banks of the River Thames we have sole access to a 250 Acre Private Woodlands just outside the Village of Appleton, in Oxfordshire. With 125 Acres designated as SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) there is an abundance of flora and fauna. With a mixed canopy throughout the woodlands and a mosaic of habitats this woodlands provides us with amazing resources, with Oak, Ash, Beech, Birch, Hazel, Hawthorn, Cherry, Blackthorn and more. We have resident populations of Muntjac, Roe and Fallow Deer. Plus a huge variety of other fauna with almost daily sightings of Stoat, Tawny Owl, Buzzard, Red Kite and so much more. We operate all of our courses here for individuals to book on to, including our Woodland Ways Weekend, we also offer private bookings, school bookings, stag do's and corporate events.
Toilet facilities are available my means of composting toilets and a portaloo. There are central covered teaching area's within the woodlands comprising of timber and canvas structures.
This wonderful wonderful woodlands is situated within 45 minutes of West London and the local train station (Oxford) is less than a 15 minute cab ride away. Please ensure when travelling to the venue you use the directions and not rely on Sat Nav in order to prevent getting lost.
Our courses in East Lothian run from Blinkbonny Wood, a 100 acre mixed canopy woodland, nestling on the edge of the Lammermuir Hills which provides easy access to hill and moor.
Approximately 20 miles from Edinburgh and 5 miles from the historic market town of Haddington.
It is close to Longyester, and therefore public transport to the area is easily achievable with international flights coming in to Edinburgh, as well as Edinburgh Waverley Train Station.
The canopy is a mixed patchwork with birch, hazel and scots pine a plenty. Gorse throws in its usual colours in the year and at the woodland boundaries there are stunning views of the hills in one direction, the coast in another, and bordering farmland.
Within our woodlands here you are likely to see Roe Deer, and we have regular sign of badger. There is also a variety of species of owl.
We operate weekend and day courses from this woodlands and occasional longer duration courses that require access to the hill side. We also offer private courses for schools, parties, stag dos etc.
With very kind permission of the Duke and Dutchess of Rutland, our courses here are set within the stunning private 16000 acre Belvoir Castle estate boasting truly beautiful areas of ancient woodland.
The venue is located just outside the village of Nipton in rural Leicestershire around 6 miles west of Grantham. Our main base is set within a remote 400 Acre solid block of Woodlands, with no road noise or light pollution, and with access to the wider Estate. With 31 of the 32 species of native trees the canopy is simply stunning, and the vast acreage provides us with plenty of scope for renewable resources. As you would expect, there is an abundance of wildlife and flora.
