The Forest of Dean and Wye Vallley is a fantastic area to visit with so much to see and do.

As well as our Cookery Classes we are able to accommodate requests from groups of friends or families,  individuals or couples wanting a more bespoke experience.

Seasonal Foraging –  Follow the seasons and discover what nature can provide for your plate from the humble nettle, the majestic chestnut tree, abundant wild garlic or the bounty of the autumn hedgerow – a true taste of nature that can be incorporated into your everyday meals.

Simple Survival Skills – Learn how to spend a day in the woods without a mobile phone! Learn to identify animal tracks, build a shelter, detect water, light a fire and cook outdoors. You will learn new skills and gain an unforgettable insight into nature and how to re-connect with your environment. Finish with a wonderful ‘Taste of the Forest’ meal in the Cookery School.
