Enjoy Forest School, Bushcraft and exceptional Outdoor Activities for all ages. No-one is too young or old for an adventure at Hidden Woods.
From wonderful parent and toddler sessions and carefully crafted outdoor birthday parties to wild stag do’s, willow weaving and innovative forest school programmes for schools and educational groups, every session at Hidden Woods is truly one of a kind.
Each offering is thoughtfully and expertly designed to embrace the developmental opportunities that our natural playground provides, offer a blissful bolthole to escape the noise of modern living, and ensure bags of fun along the way.
We regularly host bespoke events for schools, groups and families too. If you have a group you’d like to bring to the woods do get in touch and we will be delighted to explore the possibilities with you.
Enjoy your roam around our website, if you have any questions please drop us a line and we look forward to welcoming you to the woods very soon.
Gaining confidence, learning new skills, kindling fires and friendships, all these things happen naturally for every child at Saplings at a pace that is natural and fun. It’s your weekly sanctuary where you can reconnect, recharge and enjoy your child happy at play, making magical memories of childhood to last a lifetime.
Saplings follows the Forest School ethos where your child is empowered to lead their play and develop their unique interests along with their confidence and an appreciation of the natural world. Each week a diverse and creative range of nature based activities, crafts and games are available to enjoy as their mood takes them. There are firm favourites too that always remain; the mud kitchen, wooden xylophone, natures climbing frame and of course the heart of our camp, the fire.
We are an award-winning woodland activity centre, based in 80 acres of ancient woodland just a stone’s throw from Bath, Frome and surrounding area.
We have sensitively developed four fantastic camps around the woods, all of which boast a great variety of ‘wow’ features, like sheltered fire pits, rope swings, mud kitchens and stream play areas. Having a choice of camps at our disposal has several key benefits, such as ensuring that we do not impact on any one area too heavily and being able to choose the camp best suited to the group, conditions and activities on any given day.
The woods have a rich variety of flora and fauna, including a resident pair of buzzards who are regularly seen perched in their favourite tree near our base. In the spring a large area of the woods is carpeted with bluebells – just one of the seasonal delights that visitors to the woods can expect to come across.
Throughout the development and ongoing management of Hidden Woods, our aim has been to create a place that will capture the imagination and create a sense of wonder both for children and their carers.
