Day in the Woods
Get outdoors and spend the day at our private wilderness site in the woods along the banks of the beautiful river Avonmore.
Our 'Day In The Woods' programme is all about getting out, having fun and learning some skills. Our location is a beautiful and natural wild environment and a perfect place to unwind, practice outdoor skills and a chance to reconnect with nature.
The campfire will be lit and will have large kettles hanging over it with water on the boil for anyone looking for hot drinks. From 10am to 2pm, we will look at a few subjects such as establishing flame - the materials and methods used, harvesting fire wood, fire lays, pot hangers, harvesting water etc. After lunch, you have a choice to either practice what was covered in the morning and perfect and refine your techniques or you can simply chill out by the campfire. We have a beautiful loop walk around the site which will bring you through the forest and along by the river and up to our tree tent and hammock camping area. This spot was used to film scenes from the popular TV series Vikings, who left behind some beautiful tree carvings.
Tea and coffee available but bring your packed lunch or something to cook over the fire. The day ends at 6pm.
