Woodland Skills Centre – what we do
What Our Customers are Saying
I just wanted to thank you once more for a fantastic day yesterday. Everyone on the course enjoyed themselves, and really appreciated every aspect of the course.
I just wanted to send you a quick email to say Thank You. We has a wonderful time at the Bushcraft Course and I just wanted to say thanks for running a great centre and doing a great course!
Attended this course last weekend. Absolutely brilliant. What a great site – the team there are fab. The course was great – learned so much about different materials to weave, and how to prepare them. And then how to make two different styles of pots – coiling and braiding. Both my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed it – what a great way to switch off for the weekend and learn a new skill. We will be back! And already told others about this special place.
The Woodland Skills Centre was very much enjoyed by the group.
In fact this was the best thing the Cubs said we did during this year.
Just being able to explore a beautiful woodland, cook over an open fire, foraging, understanding more about trees and nature.
Plus they certainly really loved learning from the experts on how to use various tools , making nest boxes, willow and gypsy crafts, so thank you all for this.

I wanted to say than you once again to yourself and Alan for what has been an absolutely splendid day. I honestly can’t remember the last time I enjoyed a learning experience so much.
I’ve just arrived home and had the whole family trying out my new ‘shave horse’ in the back garden, along with lots of curious looks from the neighbors!
Everything about the Woodland Skills Centre is brilliant, from the new training block to the incredible workshop and of course the skill and knowledge of the team, it’s like an explosion of sights and sounds that keeps you thirsting for more.
I will be back, and next time I won’t be alone!
