"My husband and I went along today with our 5 & 6 year old children. We had a fantastic time and the site is beautiful. So much to keep the children (and us!) entertained, that the time flew by. Playing with clay, wood, making fires and toasting marshmallows. Child heaven!"
"I attended my first activity day in the forest today with my 1 year old and 4 year old and we all had such a wonderful time - not even the rain could dampen the spirit in camp. It was a blissful 4 hours getting back to nature and enjoying uninterrupted quality time together, playing, exploring and learning. We made elderflower pancakes, clay bugs, wooden snails, leaf print bunting and charcoal pencils. Feel refreshed and inspired. Jennie and Charlie were warm, kind, patient and encouraging as they taught us new forest skills and it was so much fun. This has shot to the top of our list of favourite days out. And we can’t wait to be back. Thank you for such a great day!! Very special experience - highly recommend it."
