Where you'll be

We own a beautiful ancient woodland, tucked away from any main roads, very close to Raglan Castle, we have a host of wild animals that live in our woodland including polecats. The buzzards fly regularly through the tress and nest in the summer. It’s a very pretty woodland which is still a world away from our current situation.

What a lovely experience in these private woodlands that we could explore and learn more about our natural surroundings. Our instructors Joel and George were a wonderful team who were very knowledgeable and tailored our day to meet our experience and interests. Tanya provided a wonderful lunch, and was so welcoming to our family. Really made us feel one of the gang! Thank you for a great experience.
