We really look forward to hearing how much fun you have had on your day out at Wolford Wood. You can come for a couple of hours or the whole day. Light a small camp fire, build a den, bring a picnic* or take a long walk through English deciduous woodland. Please call or email to agree time of visit. £5 per adult, £1.50 per child.

*This is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, home to 2,500 different species of flowers, fungi and fauna. We employ an Eco friendly "leave no trace" ethos so single-use plastic is not to be brought into the woods and guests are asked to take all belongings and litter home with them.

A message from Sharon:

My Forest bathing sessions are two hours spent in the wonderful 200 acre private woods at Wolford near Moreton in Marsh.

Walking wise, we probably only cover about a mile of actual walking so not too much.

The time is spent connecting our senses through sensory led activities by me, along with poetry reading and reflection.

It’s a really healing natural therapy which is gentle but very effective in allowing our minds to reconnect with nature.

The numbers of the group are restricted to six people and costs £20 per head for the two hours, including refreshments in the woods.


Woodland Butterfly Safari

Next Dates:
TBC

Accompany Warwickshire's Butterfly Conservationist, Tara as she leads an interactive walking safari through Wolford Wood to view spectacular specialist woodland butterflies. We will watch for the elusive Purple Emperor, considered as one of the most beautiful butterflies in Britain. Another bright, stunning butterfly to watch for is our largest fritillary - the Silver-washed fritillary which is often seen feeding on the brambles as well as the White Admiral as it glides effortlessly along the woodland rides. With an amazing 28 recorded species residing here, you will be sure to see many lovely butterflies as well as taking time out to connect with nature. We hope you can join us in our expedition.
Allow 1-1.5 hrs for the walk then relax afterwards with a delicious Cotswold cream tea or a scrummy tray bake with refreshment supplied by
HUFFKINS bakery. You are welcome to bring a picnic or hire one of our halo grill fire pits for a BBQ and stay all day.
