Finally got the website linked to my face book page. I look forward to getting connected.......
All set up and ready to go, get yourself booked in and enjoy a great day in the woods.
We have spaces left on our next two courses.
April 30 overnight May 1, A 24 hour experience, and May 8, single day course.
We love you to join us, come and learn some skills, have lots of fun and simply enjoy being in the woods.
Well the forecast was not brilliant, and as the group arrived down came a very heavy shower. This could be a very wet day......
Fortunately that was the last shower of the day, the wind was blustery at times but all the showers missed us as we had such a great day.
They had great fun learning about fire lighting with a spark, got creative whittling tent pegs, got hot sawing wood and then things got competitive with the archery. The final part was to complete the challenge using some of their new learnt skills.
What a great group, lots of fun and a joy to work with.
Its your turn next, get in touch and join us for more fun and learning in the woods.
What a lovely day, clear skies sunshine and a visit to Lyme Regis.
It gave me the chance to collect some different seaweeds, as part of my level 4 course I am experimenting with wild foods. Of course you also have to check out other coastal foods so fish and chips for lunch followed by honeycomb ice cream.
I have people already booked on two courses which is great.
If your looking to learn some bush craft skills then get yourself booked on a day with them.
Either a 24 hour experience April 30 /May 1 or the single day May 8
I look forward to hearing from you.
It was a beautiful day for a birthday bush craft experience. Six lads in the woods learning and having a lot of fun.

From birthday parties to team experience days, we will teach you some bush craft skills and inspire you to engage with the wild.
What a wonderful bunch of folks, a real delight to meet and spend a day with.
Last year we ran our first team experience day. It went really well the organiser wrote
I have been doing team away days for 8 years with many of the team members, and they said this was the best yet!!
We can work with you to provide a great fun day out learning new skills for your team.

The good news is, if you cant find a date that works just contact us and we will find a date for you.

The voucher can be used against a selection of courses to suit you.
A great present for someone, get in touch ASAP
Running a day in December will always depend on the weather. The forecast 5 days previous looked really poor but as the day approached it improved. On the day it was dry all morning and then only drizzle. This enabled us to have a great time in the woods. Fire lighting, exploring, and getting a glimpse of 2 Roe deer. After a few hours the lads had grasped that the woods was somewhere you could find all you need to live, they left with the knowledge that it is important to take care of these places.
A great day and lots of fun.
Can we run a birthday party for you next year? Get in touch and book it up.
It was really good to run the a single day course, thanks guys for your enthusiasm and it was a pleasure to work with you.
Give us a call and see what sort of course we can put together for you.
We are running a single day this Saturday.
We have places so give us a call if you want to take part.
We had our biggest group yet when 20 staff from a health care group came to us for a team day.
Lots of skill learning and hands on experience was the order of the day. We organised it so they all got mixed around to work with as many different colleagues as possible.
The day ended with a scenario in which they had various tasks to complete using skills and knowledge gained during the day.
What a great day to be a part of, it was a pleasure meeting and working with these guys.
Maybe we can create a great day for your team!
Give us a call
July 25th Saturday
We have some places left on this course.
We are running this one in Somerset, if your interested let us know ASAP.
Great bunch of lads to work with over the weekend.
The highlight was having Roland come in and supervise a great wild food evening meal. Mackerel and Salmon cooked over the fire with Mussels and a wild food sauce.
Saturday saw the first Basic Bushcraft birthday party.
A small group of girls who have formed the Ultimate Survival Club celebrated one of the club members birthday with a bush craft party. They were a delight, full of fun and ready to give it all a go.
I have been busy today preparing and planning two bush craft courses booked for the near future.
Really looking forward to meeting the groups and having a great experience in the woods.
Life is very hectic this month as I am busy with an outdoor activity company, we have just had two great weeks in the Brecon Beacons. On both weeks we enjoyed wall to wall sunshine. It has been so good to watch the country side bust into new life with all this beautiful weather.
Wooden wedges are a great way to split wood in the absence of an axe. It is also a very safe way to split wood, one slip with a sharp axe can be painful.
The wedges need to be made from a tough wood so you can hit them hard, enabling you to split open a piece of wood. I found a fallen Black thorn, this is a very hard and tough wood so I cut myself a some straight bits and set to making myself some wedges.
Today here in Somerset it was a beautiful day. Out in the woods the birds were singing and signs of spring beginning to show.
I had the pleasure of teaching some bush craft skills to a small group who were great fun.
The highlight was them making bow drill sets and learning how to use them. They all did really well. I suspect tonight they will be out in their gardens practising there new skill.
If you are interested in learning some bush craft skills then get in touch and book a day.
We have now got ourselves listed on Trip advisor.
As we run courses this year I am hoping people will leave reviews. The response I got last year from clients was very positive so I am looking forward to more great courses and meeting lots of fantastic people.
It has been a frantic start to our new year. We have had to do lots of work on our house including re-felting the roof. Today the scaffold went, we still have some work to finish, but its now time to look forward.
I have lots of work as an outdoor instructor already booked in the diary, which is great. I am looking forward to meeting all those groups and having a fantastic time with them in the great outdoors. Once again I am leading a group of young people on an expedition in South Africa for 3 weeks. Really getting excited about that and its still months away!
Last year it was a privileged to work with those who came on my bush craft days and overnight courses. Everyone who attended was a delight to work with and now I look forward to more of the same.
If you you are interested in learning some basic bush craft skills, and having a great experience then get in touch and book a course with us.
Single day course running on Saturday 15th November.

It was so good to be out in the woods on a lovely autumnal day with such delightful people.
It was a single day course and the focus was all about lighting fires.
If you would like to learn about lighting fires or any other aspect of bush craft get in touch,use the contact us page.
Rambo silently walks into VIEW.
This Rambo a 5 ton adult male Elephant. What an amazing privilege it was to interact with him and two others at a reserve, educating us on how they conserve the Elephant population.
The moment he appeared beside us was one of the high lights of my Africa experience, how can an animal so huge just appear without a sound. Awesome.
