hands-on-bushcraft-woodland-venue-locationWe are based in Wiltshire and run our courses from a private 82 acre deciduous woodland just outside the village of Oaksey, near Cirencester. We are lucky to have sole use of this site which lends itself nicely to host the variety of courses for individuals to book on to,  we also offer private bookings, schools bookings, stag and hen do’s and corporate events.

The part of the woodland that we have our main camp setup in is known at the nursery but don’t let that fool you the trees in this part are far from young. Local trees such as hazel, silver birch, hawthorn, ash, oak and beech will become your friends along side the tawny owls, foxes, badgers and deer who roam through the woods.

The main basecamp setup includes a parachute roofed roundhouse with woven hazel walls and rustic seating within. A tarped kitchen zone with handmade tables as well as other covered teaching zones so that we can operate no matter the weather.hands-on-bushcraft-parachute-shelter

Toilet facilities include a composting toilet which is tucked away several meters from basecamp for privacy.

Our wonderful woodland site is situated in the Cotswolds and is within 35 minutes of the M4 and 45 minutes of the M5 so can easily be access no matter where you are travelling from. The local train station is Kemble which is 10 minutes taxi drive to the woodland venue. When travelling to the venue please use the joining instructions as the closest postcode is a mile away.
