Hen Parties

If you are looking for a chilled woodland retreat for your stag or hen weekend – then Forest Garden Shovelstrode is the place for you!

You’ll be staying in luxury yurts and cabins within the secret ancient woodland. Cooking under the stars in the large open fire pit or BBQ, or being served delicious breakfasts and tea parties at the Forest Garden café. The clay pizza oven can be hired for your own party, or picnic hampers can be delivered to your door.

There are many short courses that can be arranged such as green woodworking, making candles or beauty products from beeswax. Other activities include woodland yoga, African drumming circle in a yurt, or an outdoor massage surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature.

Group bookings for hen and stag parties will be considered at the owners’ discretion. This is not a venue for a rowdy party. Amplified music is forbidden and any low volume acoustic music should be finished by 11pm. Guests are reminded to respect the peace and tranquility of our ancient woodland and of other guests.

Team Building

Forest Garden Shovelstrode teaches people traditional woodland crafts and focuses on ways of living more self sufficiently.

A range of off-site and on-site activities can be organised for groups of between 5-40 people looking at creating a more practical or hands-on team building event. This rustic styled setting offers a more ‘back to basics’ flavour by working together in the natural environment. A number of courses can be run concurrently allowing groups of various sizes to do a morning on one activity and an afternoon on another.

Any of our on-site woodland crafts courses can be tailored to suit your requirements. Additionally off-site activities can be arranged such as:

Orienteering . 1/2 day. 5-25 people (Ashdown Forest – 5.8 miles)

Led by World Expedition Leader Mark Milligan this activity takes place on Ashdown Forest.
It is an area of special scientific interest and an area of outstanding natural beauty, providing a unique habitat for a wide range of rare plants (including orchids), birds and wildlife. Ashdown Forest has had a fascinating and varied history from the early production of iron to its use as King Henry VIII's royal hunting ground.
Bike Trekking . 1/2 day. 5-25 people (Deers Leap, E.Grinstead – 5.5 miles)
Sailing Class. 1/2 day. 2-25 people (Weir Wood, East Grinstead – 4.8 miles)
