Wild Weekend (Camping)

2pm on Saturday 21st August to 12noon on Sunday 22nd August

£185 per parent + child pairing. Suggested age for child is between 5 and 12 years old.

 

We have had so many requests from people about camping up at The Barn that we decided it was time to have a Wild Weekend.

 

For the weekend of 21st/22nd August we will be opening up our beautiful grounds for the first time for family camping (and we are very excited!).

 

Our Wild Weekend is the perfect introduction to camping for anyone looking to spend a night under the starts with their child.  In true Where Inspiration Blooms style, we want this to be a shared experience so it's all about you spending quality time together.

 

After you've arrived, found a good spot and set up your tent, we will invite you to join our lovely Bushcraft teacher Jools from Nature's Jewels for some afternoon activities.

 

Sessions will include casting in pewter, making woodland craft, learning to light the camp fire, hapa zome (nature imprinting) and whittling wood from the grounds.

 

Then Caroline will run a workshop where we can all 'play with clay' and make either pinch pots or clay animals which she will then set to dry overnight ahead of us building a fire pit and firing them all on Sunday morning!  Think of this like the ultimate outdoor kiln firing!

 

Once we are all crafted-out we'll fire up the cob oven and light the camp fire ready for dinner.  You are welcome to bring pizzas to cook inside the cob oven or cook on the communal fire or equally your own camping stove is fine!

 

After dinner as the sun sets, you can to take an evening stroll to hunt for our resident bats and owls or simply join us round the fire for a good old fashioned sing song (feel free to bring musical instruments!).

 

Facilities-wise we have the following:

  • portaloo
  • 1 x outside sink with cold running water
  • cob oven

 

You will need to bring your own tent, bedding, all refreshments and food, and everything you would normally bring on a night out under the stars!

 

Ts & Cs....NB in order for this weekend to go ahead we will need to have a minimum of 5 bookings.  We also reserve the right to cancel should we feel covid restrictions or legisltaion/guidance would risk te safety of you, ourselves and our teachers.
