I can't thank Ian enough not only was he immensely knowledgable, professional and very friendly. He made learning easy with his amazing style of leadership. It was hands down more like just spending the weekend with a group of friends who all supported each other and Ian was definitely a part of that. I couldn't recommend this course any more. A great split of information, practical skill and hands on learning. Genuinely felt able to ask questions and ask for additional support.
Where do I start?! I'm still grinning like a fool after an amazing weekend set in truly beautiful surroundings. Ian our instructor was just brilliant, a total gent who taught me more in one weekend than I could have ever thought possible. I wish there would have been teachers like him at school when I was a kid. My one and only regret about this course is not getting it booked years ago!
The whole team had an absolutely fantastic day and learned so much, it definitely exceeded our expectations. Jay was a fantastic instructor and much to my surprise all but one of the team joined in the wild pigeon prep! Our MD had a fabulous time and is now thinking of doing this type of thing for other teams in the business, something we will look at budgeting for next year, so I have no doubt we will be in touch again. Thank you again for your help setting it all up, accommodating us at our site and enabling us to learn so much, we’re all off out to buy fire kits and survival packs!
Hi, just wanted to give you some feedback from my Woodland Ways Bushcraft Weekend in the Belvoir Castle woods on 5th-7th of April 2019 - what a fantastic weekend! We were lucky with the group of people and had a good laugh, but the instructors Adam, Davy, Mark, Brian and Stuart were brilliant, I can't praise them enough. Hopefully I'll escalate towards the week-long course now, although that will require a discussion with the wife...
Superb woodland setting with a magnificent mix of trees to examine and identify. Pioneering saplings to fallen giants and everything in between to get a feel for their growth, injuries, recovery and co-operation with everything else within the wood. The mix of axe tuition and tree work within the workshop catered for all levels. Jason and Davids enthusiasm, patience and knowledge was impressive. Brilliant weekend, many thanks!
I have just completed a Map Reading and Navigation course at Edale. The course was fantastic because Jason is such a brilliant teacher who can teach lots of different levels of ability all at the same time with kindness, extensive knowledge and humour. The scenery of Edale was stunning. The course was well organised and catered extensively to the needs of the participants over the 2 days. I would recommend this course to anyone. I would definitely return to attend another course. I bet they are all brilliant! Thank you! 5*
I was on the Bushcraft Fundamentals course on Sunday 28th October. I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all concerned with your operation. I absolutely loved it. The site itself was amazing. The instructors were fantastic and certainly gave me a taste for continuing my education, which I will certainly be looking to do with more of your courses!
I wanted to give some feedback from last Sunday's foraging course with Jay, Alec and Joe. All three were excellent teachers and each brought a lot of personal professionalism and passion to the course. We felt they had good rapport between them as well as generating it amongst us. I learned a lot and really enjoyed the entire day. I would certainly recommend it to anyone.
As an organisation we personally wanted to thank both Jay and Asa for leading this family event. The families commented on how much they valued Jay and Asa's expertise in leading the event. The activities were pitched perfectly for the age of the children and Jay's evening woodland walk had both children and parents captivated. It is very clear that Jay has a skill in reaching out to children of this age group, it couldn’t have been better. So a BIG CLDF thank you to them both. All of our families reported that they had had an amazing time with all their expectations being met - we will be booking again next year!
I just wanted to write to say how brilliant the Family Survival Course was. The instructors Ian and Joe were both brilliant. As a teacher myself, I appreciated just how child-focussed they made the course, and how they encouraged independence and confidence (even with very sharp knives!) in the children, and especially my son Jacob. They struck a wonderfully balanced tone that ensured the course was fun, informative, very well organised and very safely run. The health and safety was seriously delivered without causing undue worry and I thought this in particular was superb. We learnt so much and I could see how each skill session, whether delivered by Ian or Joe, was backed up by genuine knowledge, real skill and purpose, and a depth of experience that again was delivered perfectly. We had such a good time and will absolutely be back in the future! Thanks for a wonderful course, and please do pass my thanks on to Ian and Joe in particular. It was simply brilliant and we have many happy memories (and two butter knives too!)
