About the experience

If you're looking for a unique experience in the countryside, then bushcraft in Dorset might be just what you need. You can choose from a range of courses, including a one-day 'taster' event, a small group weekend where you stay overnight, or a family bonding session where you can sleep under the stars for a night. During the one-day course, you'll learn the basics of bush crafting in the ancient woodlands of Dorset. Despite its reputation for beaches and coastline, Dorset has acres of woodlands that are rich in flora and fauna. Even if it's just for a few hours, you can be quite comfortably self-sufficient with the right knowledge. If you opt for the small group weekend course, you'll get to sleep outdoors and learn the same skills as the one-day course. You'll also have to make yourself a shelter for the night, which could involve building something tarp-based or setting up a hammock. It'll be a test of your knot-tying skills, but it'll be surprisingly snug and warm. You'll also learn about traps and tracking, foraging, and carving tools and utensils. For families who want to try something different, the family weekend is a perfect choice. You can explore the wilderness of Dorset with your kids and learn new bushcraft skills at the same time. It's a great way to break out of your usual routine and experience something completely new.
