Throughout the year we run a series of historically themed retreats. These normally take place in a camping environment and present an excellent opportunity for on hands exploration of historic and prehistoric landscapes. Conditions allowing, there is always some astronomy under dark skies in our mobile observatory.


For 2020 we are introducing an overarching wellbeing theme including new activities from forest bathing to hot tub bathing and yoga aimed at the adults whilst our younger guests are involved with on-hands history.

We have three key locations, The Abingtons, just south of Cambridge, The Wilderness at Mitcheldean in the Forest of Dean and Barbadoes Woods, nestling in the Wye Valley high above Tintern.  Click on the images for further information.

Obviously at the moment (January  2021) all our activities are on hold. We hope to run some in the autumn and if you are interested, do contact us and we will be in touch once we have a clearer idea of what we shall be offering.
