The fun to be had?.....

Betty O'Barley and Harry O'Hay have left us a list for there wedding! Lets see if we can find all the items as we venture around the farm, you'll get a chance to meet the animals that live there too.

We've got lots of fun Scarecrows Wedding activities to do too:

  • Make a crow on a stick to fly around the farm!

  • Create a natural necklace by sawing a wood slice and threading Elder beads and pasta onto ribbon.

  • Make a mini scarecrow to take home too


In our wooded area you will find a hammock to play in, our nest swing to relax in and a mud kitchen to create some mud pies, or maybe you would like to explore or go on a bug hunt.


Back at the fire circle, we will toast some marshmallows over the fire and enjoy some hot chocolate or squash whilst listening to the story before it is time to go home all worn out!


Child tickets £14.00 includes all craft items to take home, drink and marshmallows

Children under 18 months attend for free when accompanied by a full paying child.



What to wear?

What happens if the weather is bad?

We will continue the session in most weathers and will put up tarps for shelter if there is risk of rain and we also have the use of a communal greenhouse for our activities if need be.

Who are running the sessions and what are your ratio's?

We run our sessions to a high adult to child ratio aiming for a 1:5 ratio. Your session will be run by a forest school level 3 trained leader who is outdoor first aid certified, plus our regular volunteers, ensuring your child has enough time to learn how the skills needed for each activity available and at a pace that is suited to their individual needs. All our volunteers and forest school leaders hold current and relevant DBS certificates. These can be produced on request.
