Life can be manic and stressful; lets slow it all down, get away from our everyday pressures (even if just for a few hours) and get back into nature.
Our WOOD’N’YOU sessions, are designed to provide a positive environment and situations where you can go at natures pace discover new things and skills and enjoy our surroundings.
All sessions are designed to allow us to slow down, relax and enjoy the forest environment around us; the sounds of the forest, the scent of the trees, the sunlight through the leaves, the fresh air, the peace and tranquillity, the sound of the birds, the branches moving in the wind, the wild life and plants that live in the forest. These things give us a sense of comfort. They ease our stress and worry, help us to relax and to think more clearly.
Being in nature can restore our mood, give us back our energy and vitality, refresh and rejuvenate us. We don’t offer Wi-
BUSHCRAFT AND CAMPFIRE
Let’s collect wood and light a fire in one of our specific Bushcraft areas. Then put a brew on, possibly cook something over our open fire, then sit around talking.
We could make things from wood and natural materials; whether something small like a coaster or picture frame, or something bigger like a shelter or natural fencing. All whilst taking in the sounds and smells of the forest.
GUIDED WALKS AND NAVIGATION
How about a gentle guided walk through the forest; stopping to take in the nature around us, doing some Wellbeing activities, or putting the kettle on for a brew and biscuits.
Why not learn to navigate, so you can get out and about yourself. We run sessions that allow you to discover how to use a map and navigational aids to find your way.
FOREST BIKE RIDES
Why not a gentle guided bike ride and visit areas of the forest you wouldn’t normally get to; we can stop when and where we need to for a break and to take in the sights and sounds around us, whilst discovering more of the nature and surroundings of the forest.
The rides are available for any level of rider, so if you haven’t ridden for quite a few years, or you are new to riding, the rides will be suitable for you. The rides are designed to be relaxing and stimulating.
