Two bespoke mini ramps
We had two mini ramps made to our exact specifications, 1 designed for learning in mind, and the other for a real fun skate! Our first ramp stands at just 2ft tall with a super mellow transition, making scary tricks an absolute breeze – learn your tricks on this one before taking them up to our second ramp – a 3.5ft beauty with a bit more transition to really get the wind in your hair.

Private woodland, 42 acres of it!
Situated in the middle of a private woodland, it’s a perfect base from which to immerse yourself in the local wildlife, with plenty of secret routes to explore. Experience unparalleled access to the natural world from the comfort of the round house sofas where you can relax of an evening with a glass of wine, breathe in the fresh pine air (which is great for your lung function) and doze off to the meditative sound of the wind. Experience the powerful relaxing effects of sitting among the trees, which has been shown to stimulate an anti-depressant effect in our brains.
Fire gazing has also been shown to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, helping you to de-stress and unwind. Experience its calming effects in bucketloads as cook your meals around the BBQs or campfire. Kitchen ovens and walls? Extremely overrated if you ask us.
This event is uncatered, so please do bring your own food and cooking equipment along with you. You are welcome to bring gas camping stoves and disposable bbqs, however we do encourage the use of our open fire outdoor cooking facilities – we have an abundant wood shed, just remember to bring your own coal for the BBQ!
If you don’t fancy cooking, you will have the option to order a pizza and beer from the round house kitchen and bar!
If camping just isn’t for you, then we have some incredible, quirky huts for you to stay in this autumn. Choose from spacious steel yurts, renovated log railway carriages, and even a boathouse! All with double and single beds, super warm duvets, fresh linen and a wood burning stove to keep you cosy at night. Take a closer look at our glamping options here.
