You have all heard of sunbathing on the beach or in the back garden. Well woodland bathing takes place (yes you have guessed it) in the woods. It is just a great way to chill and relax in a natural surrounding by absorbing the sounds and smell of the woodland and relieving yourself of stress and reconnect with nature. The beauty of woodland bathing is it can be done anywhere and it doesn’t have to be confined to woodland. It is all about stress relief and escaping everyday life something we all need from time to time.
Either just lie down on the ground or if you have a hammock string it up between two trees. Look up into the canopy of the trees and watch the clouds drift on by, it won’t be long before you have totally switched off and experience total relaxation. It’s amazing how this heightens your senses enabling you to hear and smell things you would have usually missed.
Woodland bathing also involves immersing yourself in the environment you find yourself in. This could also mean taking part in an activity such as sitting around a campfire and cooking a simple meal or just watching the dancing flames. We often find with a lot of our customers they love to combine this with an activity where they get the best of both worlds. It’s great for families because they all get to enjoy an activity and then the adults can enjoy relaxing in the hammocks while the children explore and build dens.
It really doesn’t matter where you are find a tranquil spot and take in the surrounding environment. A great way to boost your mental health and well-being.

An excellent day spent at Kirk Ireton School helping them link in their educational topic on dinosaurs with an outdoor based element. The children were all very enthusiastic and excited when we arrived and they put everything in to the challenges and activities we had set up for them. Their knowledge of dinosaurs was excellent and they were all a credit to their school, well done to the Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Using the outdoors is a great way to finish off an educational topic and whatever the topic we will always find an outdoor solution.

Hens chilled out last weekend in our 9 acre woodland site whilst undertaking a series of outdoor activities from Slack lining, Archery and Bushcraft. The girls set up a camp, built their fire and cooked their own dinner with the help of their guides and of course mum! In between chilling out and enjoying the tranquillity of being at one with nature they also embarked on some peter pan elements of shooting arrows at targets throughout the woodland and slack lining between trees. One hen said it was “the best day out, when can we come back again?”. Whenever you want! Just book a woodland chillout and we’ll personalise it to what you want to do. Glad you had fun.
Some might think throwing yourself off a viaduct is an extreme way of getting out of the world of teaching but for the wonderful teachers and staff of a local Derbyshire Primary school abseiling off the Millers Dale bridge was a completely appropriate way to say thank you and farewell to their Headteacher who has brought a great sense of adventure and outdoor pursuits to many schools in Derby and Derbyshire throughout her teaching career. A great evening was spent as each of the 12 ladies challenged themselves to take the plunge and landed with beaming smiles! The youngest abseiler was even too young to remember the event as he/she has not yet been born. It just shows that there’s no stopping some teachers! Well done ladies and Good Luck for all the future outdoor pursuits!

Physically and mentally challenging the faint hearted need not apply. A rigorous course set over 5km of rough terrain whilst also carrying the team barrel.
