Exploring the River Bank
We're a Forest School business based in East Devon offering educational and fun activity days, social events and skills training based on the Forest School ethos of inspiring and encouraging greater independence, self-esteem and personal skills while experiencing Nature.

We are able to offer a very personalised service to groups and individuals that go beyond the conventional and suburban, tailoring our fully-supervised activities to match your needs and imagination. We operate over the full range of the Escot Estate habitats, with river, park, wetland and woodland to explore and study.

The Greenwood Centre provides covered work and social campfire areas, including a heated Mongolian ger for the winter months, an extensive range of greenwood working tools and equipment and an Anglo-Saxon living history site.
