Take a mindful walk in the woods with us as we explore the magic of the mighty Oak tree. 

Moving from root to tip, we’ll learn how to use the oak’s natural ingredients to make and explore the myths, magic and history of the Oak – so deeply rooted in our culture.


The day will include:


A mindful walk in the woods.


Sweet treats and freshly brewed local coffee and herbal teas.


Fire lighting.


A fire side meditation and mindful looking exercises.


An Oak Gall Ink Making workshop followed by a woodland inks painting workshop.


A Woodland Feast cooked up over Fire.


An Oak dyes workshop where you’ll learn how to dye a silk scarf or handkerchief over fire.


Fire-side storytelling.


A beautiful woodland goodie bag.


TBT (To be tasty)


Please note the woodland feast will be a vegetarian meal.

Our menus are best suited for flexible, adventurous eaters with a strong focus on seasonally and locally inspired ingredients, including wild and foraged foods sourced from nature’s larder.


Due to the nature of our events and in order to uphold high-quality standards we are only able to accommodate limited dietary requests at our dining events and cookery courses. Our dining events are intimate affairs with small groups, centred around a set menu lovingly prepared in our remote woodland kitchen by our small kitchen team, therefore preparing a separate menu to cater for dietary needs is not always possible. 


Dietary needs must always have been communicated and approved prior to booking your seat at our table, and must be advised to our team no later than 7 days prior to the event so that our chef’s can make the necessary arrangements.

please note

Our woodland location is a 5-10 minute walk from the parking area, with a section uphill.


This event takes place in the great outdoors, therefore please ensure to wear suitable clothing and footwear.


The event will take place in our Woodland Shelter, with cover in the event of wet weather.

We really hope to be able to release further tickets to all of our 2021 events, once we have a better indication of what ongoing COVID-19 restrictions may be in place for us all. For the meantime, if an event is showing as fully booked, please add your name to our Waiting List, and we’ll be sure to get in touch if any further tickets are made available. 

Please note that due to the additional COVID-19 restrictions in place, tickets to our events and courses are currently only available for a minimum of 2 guests per booking. At our courses, each booking group (2+) will share a fire-pit and cookery station, to ensure social distancing between all guests. This will be reviewed as and when government guidelines are revised.
