GATHER & GROUND
AN IMMERSIVE WOODLAND HOLIDAY
7 - 10 AUGUST 2020
RELAX · REWILD · RECONNECT
This Summer, we invite you to join us in ancient woodland for three days of
Foraging · Forest Bathing · Outdoor Dining · Mindfulness
Campfire Cooking · Breath Workshops · Barefoot Grounding
Gather & Ground is the perfect opportunity to switch off this summer, return to nature and restore your energies. You'll leave feeling deeply connected, to the people, to nature and to yourself.
Enjoy three blissful days of surrendering to the peace, calm and beauty of the woods. Spend your mornings immersed in the ancient art of forest bathing, washing your worries away.
Then, learn about the wonderful bounty the woods can provide and forage fresh greens, herbs and wildflowers to enjoy with your lunch and dinner.
Our retreat is located in a private, ancient woodland in Petersfield, just outside of West Sussex. There will be plenty of free time for you to explore the surroundings, laze in the sun, take a paddle in the river or cosy up in your yurt.
We're here to make your holiday amazing. Your comfort and enjoyment is our priority.
We'll be foraging for fresh and vibrant ingredients every day. Our chefs will use them to create beautiful dishes, along with locally sourced organic ingredients. Our meals will be cooked over the campfire and there will be plenty of opportunity to learn the art of fire cooking.
Our lunches and dinners will be served on long communal tables under the beautiful canopy of our ancient woodland. Over the three days you will meet like-minded people, share stories around the campfire and bond during our daily workshops. Of course, there will be plenty of free time too.
Daily mindfulness practices, such as guided meditation, forest bathing and breath work will leave you feeling restful and rejuvenated. Connect to the earth and to your inner sanctuary with our expert team of practitioners.
Our rustic coppicer's cabin is complete with a toasty woodburner, safari kitchen and outdoor en suite shower and toilet. With 6 camp beds, the coppicer's cabin is the perfect woodland dorm to share your experience with new friends.
Each of our private yurts are fully furnished, with comfortable bedding, a store of firewood to keep you cosy through the night and enough space to spread out and truly relax. Perfect for couples and families.
For a truly special experience, why not book our luxury yurt? Enjoy a hot bath, surrounded by solar fairy lights and candles at the end of your day. With down duvets and feather pillows – as well as an antique kelim covered chaise-longue, this is glamping at its finest.

"Fern's engaging, friendly, and highly informative style brings this fascinating skill within the reach of everyone. It felt like an amble in the woods with friends, and Fern's sharp eye and delight in the subject lead us on a journey to see familiar places with a wholly new appreciation; each tiny green morsel was a new, delicious and fascinating discovery right under our feet."

"What an awesome weekend it was, I felt absolutely incredible when I drove away, like a feeling of total wholeness and the connections that I have made with some of the girls is unreal. Thank you Eddie and Jess for bringing us all together, it was like a dream"

"We booked this break as we love camping and the woods but wanted something with a bit more warmth and comfort.We were not disappointed! The Coppicer's Lodge was magical, with everything you need. The woods were beautiful with a river running through and plenty of pathways to explore."
