Be immersed in the natural beauty of the private Graythwaite Estate on the shores of Windermere as you learn the ancient skills of bushcraft and outdoor survival. Having spent a lifetime learning bushcraft we love the opportunity to pass this knowledge on to groups and individuals whilst sharing stories and experiences of our expeditions across the globe.
During the day you’ll learn the essential elements of survival including fire lighting, knife skills, shelter building, foraging, water preparation, natural cordage and wild food cooking. The bushcraft experience is an amazing opportunity to detox from your digital lifestyle, slow down, learn new skills and enjoy being at one with your surroundings.

• Get back to nature and learn survival skills used by ancient civilisations
