Guests are invited to, not obliged to attend any and all workshops.
We are situated in one of the largest stretches of ancient woodland in the UK and there will be plenty of free time to explore.
Accommodation will vary depending on your ticket choice. You will be able to chose between the Cosy Cabin - a rustic wooden cabin that will be shared with other guests, a private yurt, which you will have sole access to and a luxury yurt, which you will have full access to. Each of the accommodation types has its own safari kitchen which you are welcome to use for any additional cooking you would like to do.
