A great introduction to the world of bushcraft. The weekend focuses on building basic shelters, making and controlling fire and the philosophy of leaving no trace. Life is spent in the open and under tarps and we were blessed with glorious sunshine which undoubtedly made our life easier. It would have been useful to know beforehand that alcohol is banned as I could have saved on weight. Some were caught out by not realising that you need to bring all you own eating and drinking utensils so making this clearer in the joining instructions would avoid embarrassment. My biggest thrill was being able to start a fire without matches, a primeval experience. Recommended especially if you get good weather.

Thank you for your review, we are pleased that you enjoyed your course. We try to make it as clear as possible in the clothing and equipment checklist within the pre-course information sent to all clients that you need to bring your own eating utensils – whatever you personal choice of these is. As for alcohol it is not ‘banned’ completely but we do ask clients to exercise moderation and extreme care due to their surroundings and the nature of all our courses. We do not ask clients in advance not to bring any alcohol at all but all instructors will give advice about alcohol at the beginning of the course.
