Woodland Time (3 to 6 years old + Grown-ups!)


This fun-filled family woodland session is designed for families with younger children (3-6yo) who love the outdoors & want to come and play in the woods & perhaps learn a few new skills.

Grown-ups are also encouraged to join in with the activities (why should the kids have all the fun?).

Woodland Time sessions last for around 3 hours, with session including the following activities (weather & willing participants depending!):

  • – A short safety briefing
  • – The Countryside Code – Learn a little about how to be in and enjoy the countryside
  • – Woodland walk – We'll explore the trails around the farm & woodland, looking at the animals & collecting natural materials
  • – Natural art – Use natural materials that we find on our Woodland Walk to make pictures
  • – Get creative (& messy) in our mud kitchen! – Budding chefs are encouraged to get as creative as possible while cooking up new and exciting recipes.
  • – Den building – Everyone loves a good den to play and hide in, so we’ll make some excellent (and safe) dens together.
  • – Slacklining – Try your hand at this balance challenge
  • – Play on the giant hammock!
  • – Woodland Games
  • – Marshmallow toasting
  • – 'Woodalion' making


Where are we?

The woodland venue is in Goostrey in Cheshire & we'll email the venue directions to you as soon as you book your places.

Keeping our woods a “secret” means that we can be sure of how many are coming on the day, which makes things a lot easier for us! 🙂



Kids: Don’t forget to bring a grown-up with you! If you’re between 3 & 6 years old then this session is specifically for you, but you do need to being a grown-up with you. The price covers you and and one grown-up, but if you do have any brothers, sisters or friends who you want to bring along, please ask your parents to get in touch with us to book their places.

Parents: Please note that parents need to accompany children at these sessions. The price covers one child & one adult. Please contact us to purchase places for extra children (or parents – no reason why you should miss out on all the fun!). Extra places are charged at £10 per head.


  • Please note that wheelchair access is unfortunately not possible & buggy access can be difficult in areas.
  • No dogs are allowed at the venue at any time.

This is one of our shorter courses & lasts for around 3 hours, starting at 9.30am. Don’t forget to bring a bottle of water with you to drink during the day because, as with all our courses this course is very much “hands-on”. Venue directions, a mandatory kit list & consent & medical declaration forms will be emailed to you after you have purchased your place(s) on the course. Please note that that there is a maximum of 7 pairs of ‘places’ on each course (eg 7 children & 7 parents). This is to ensure both your enjoyment of the course and your safety. So please book early to avoid disappointment, or contact us to discuss a private booking.

Our 24 acre mixed woodland & heathland venue is located just outside Goostrey in Cheshire, just 3.5 miles away from Junction 18 of the M6, providing the easiest of access while retaining that wilderness feeling.
