Book session

forest school adventures

During the summer of 2021 in accordance with Government guidelines, Forest School sessions will be offered to one family at a time, with group-friendly and age-appropriate activities that will encourage play, creativity and exploration of the natural environment at Old Lands. Sessions will last
for up to two hours and include a small cotton gift bag of resources for you and your visiting child(ren) to keep.  Fees will be appropriate to the size of the group.  Please contact Gillian on for more information.

Gillian Traverse runs a Forest School on the estate, the sessions are open to the children of holidaymakers on the estate as well as small groups of local children and schools. For those with children holidaying on the estate, parents can enjoy a lie-in while their children bounce about building dens, getting muddy.

Sessions for holiday makers  last 3 hours and cost £25 per child, with a family discount for siblings. Activities happen in all weathers, exploring the wilds, playing games, creating and crafting from natural materials, building fires, dens and making campfire food. It is important you book well in advance, as Gillian is busy at several sites.

On the first Saturday of every month, 10.30am-12.15pm, woodland learning & nature play sessions for 6-12 year olds are held here for local families.  Limited places – Booking essential.
