Where We Are
We operate from the Stroud area, and use two permanent sites for our parent and toddler, home-educated children and woodland parties.
Both sites are within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and are easily accessible from Stroud, Dursley, Tetbury, Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester. Both sites are set in beautiful woodlands, are easy to get to and have parking facilities.
We also offer on-site sessions in schools. Please contact us to find out how we can help meet your school's needs.
Breakheart Community Project, Dursley
This site is located on the South Cotswold escarpment in semi-ancient woodland, under the care and management of the Breakheart Community Project. There are mature beech woodlands, hazel coppices and grasslands to explore and play in and we have two base camps to choose from. The site supports many nationally and locally rare species including butterflies, moths and a colony of dormice which adds to the sense of it being a special place to be connected to.
There are toilet facilities, parking, and a cosy log cabin to retreat to or wait until pick up time. We also have use of play equipment in the area adjacent to our basecamps.
Hawkwood - Centre For Future Thinking. Stroud
Set in the beautiful grounds of Hawkwood adds to the special feeling of this site and it offers something more than just being in the woods. Beyond the walled garden, there is a round timber framed barn, which we have access to should we need to shelter from the worst of the weather and to use as our base camp. From here we can explore the woodlands, play freely and be inspired by nature to get creative.
There is parking signposted at the top of the driveway and it is a short walk through the woods to the outdoor classroom, where we meet.
