Forest Garden Shovelstrode is a woodland eco-retreat on the edge of Ashdown Forest, Sussex. It teaches people traditional woodland crafts and focuses on ways of living more self sufficiently and lowering our carbon footprint.
The ancient woodland setting offers a more ‘back to nature’ flavour. Groups can benefit from Shinrin-Yoku (or Forest bathing) along with other holistic practices such as yoga or reiki as part of the wellbeing experience. A range of woodland craft courses and team building activities can be organised for groups of between 5-30 people. Additionally off-site activities can be arranged such as: bike trekking, sailing, rock climbing, orienteering, clay pigeon shooting, golf and trout fishing.
Luxury glamping accommodation is offered in traditional yurts and rustic log cabins sleeping up to 14 people in their own beds with additional camping pitches available for another 16 people. The cafe provides delicious home cooked meals and is supplied by our own Forest Garden.
Expected skills and attributes: Teamwork, creativity, co-operation, tolerance, communication, problem solving, wellness retreat.
