Most of our courses and day workshopsare run from one of two private sites near Hertford, Herts, the main site being near Bayford, the second at Wormley West End. 

Venues for each course and workshop are specified on the course pages.


All Weekend courses are in our exclusive private ancient woodland near Bayford,,Herts.  For more info on our course venues go to our venues page.


All residential courses are based around a camp with a covered communal area, the heart of the camp, where a kettle is constantly on the fire, and tea, coffee and soft drinks are provided.  Our maximum course size is 12 and lessons are planned to give instruction and demonstrations of techniques by our friendly staff, followed by plenty of hands on practise. Our instructors are all experienced and qualified full time profesional instructors, holding as a minimum the NCFE Level 3 Advanced Bushcraft Certificate so you will be sure of receiving friendly expert advice and be able to ask questions or for extra help should you need it.

For accommodation you are expected to bring your own tent or tarp, however, if you do not have access to one please let us know and we will arrange to lend you your choice of either a tent or a tarp on a first come first served basis.  We believe that lack of equipment should not prevent people from experiencing the great outdoors, so we can provide the equipment you will need from tarps or a tent, to, saws, knives, sleeping bags and mats and bivi bags should you require them.

The main thing you need to bring is suitable outdoor clothing, a suitable torch, a sleeping bag and your enthusiasm.  As with many things, the more you put into your course the more you will get out of it.  A kit list and directions to the site will be provided with your booking confirmation.
 
NOTE* Please do not wear denim jeans as once wet these take a long time to dry out, will cause you to lose heat rapidly, and can chafe when walking.  In colder weather it is better to wear multiple layers of clothing rather just one really thick, warm layer, as multiple layers give you more opportunity to regulate your temperature. This is particularly important if you are going to be walking, or getting warm due to exertion such as when friction firelighting.
