Hello Maria



I am writing today to say Thank you on behalf of My husband and our Son’s.  They all had such a great day Last Saturday.  They all came home excited to tell about their day and the different skills Michael had taught them.  I will recommend this activity day to all my family and friends.

They are already trying to plan a weekend away so that they can show me what they can now do.  A little family competition going on too I think ;-)

Once again Please can you Thank Michael and all involved.

Kind regards

Hi Maria, 

Just wanted to quickly say that I really enjoyed the Bushcraft Course at the weekend. Mike really knows his stuff and his passion for the subject really comes across in his teaching. 

Thanks again, I would happily recommend the course to anyone and would like to do more of it myself if you run other courses. 

Kindest Regards

Hi Maria


I would just like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the bushcraft course on Saturday, and Mike was a great instructor. I was surprised at how much we managed to cover in one day. I found it a great little introduction into bushcraft. Thank you!

Just a note of thanks for the one day bush craft course I attended on Sunday 30th of March. I enjoyed the day, Paul the instructor was very approachable and knowledgeable, the day just seemed too short. Please pass on my thanks to Paul and his young helper John? I believe.  

  THANKS AGAIN Phil Green.

Hi Maria,


Just a quick email to say ""thank you very much"" to you, and especially to Mark, for the day we spent on Saturday on our basic bush craft course. Rob and I had a brilliant day and we learnt loads. Surprising how a bit of physical activity and fresh air on a day spent in the Forest can tire you out. Most importantly for me was the fact that this was a belated birthday present for my son and he really enjoyed it.

You may be interested to know that since we got home and shared our experiences, I have had a number of people asking for the details, and I have duly sent on your website address to each of them.

Thanks once again.

We might just see you again in the future! Venison steak cooked on an open fire sounds wonderful!

Hi Mark. Just a quick one to say a massive thank you for two of the most enjoyable days I have had in a very long time… and easily the best night’s sleep I can remember… there’s something special about waking up in the woods that makes your soul feel content! Also your expertise was and banter was a joy to share… I was gutted it went by so fast to be honest… we will be back for sure! Take care, and I hope Maria gets well soon. All the best! Adam.

People will tell you; “life gives you back what you put in”… this couldn’t be more apt for Marks bushcraft course… If you can, go with nothing more than an open mind and a big bag brimming with enthusiasm - and I guarantee you will have the best time of your life. Mark is a proper bloke… sort of a west country, Fred Dibnah and Ray Mears love child… his bushcraft skills are almost as awesome as his campfire story telling skills… if you don’t get on with him, chances are you’re beyond help!”

  I would like to thank Mark and the lads for a great day on Saturday, felt like being kids again and playing in the woods with not a care in the world!!

Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you to Mark, Kermit and Paul for yesterday. Despite the cold, Grant, Ellen and myself really enjoyed the day! I want to say a special thanks for the time they spent making sure Ellen was ok with the practicals. She was still beaming (despite being little chilly and tired) when we dropped her home. We hope that we might be able to do another course soon - although we all agreed we'd definately wait for warmer weather!
Thanks again!
