Forest & Beach offers curriculum-linked outdoor learning and environmental education to schools across the UK.

Run by Pete and Andrea Moore, experienced primary school teachers and pioneers of forest school in South Devon, they take young people on a unique journey of discovery.

A perfect environment and team near Beesands, Slapton, and a short drive from Kingsbridge. Great for children with lots of different activities. 100 dads and children descended on their charming rural setting in September with activities including Goat walking with 2 young kids, woodland activities, including bow and arrow making, camp fires, shelters, clay modelling.

With sea views, rolling hills, and a great beach plus playground a short walk away, we had a fantastic time and were well looked after. A pub and café are also at Beesands beach.

Their website goes into much more detail, I look forward to going back again.
