Nettle Hill | Nature Explorers Forest School and Family Events 

Set on private land in the Warwickshire countryside is a beautiful place called Nettle Hill. A fantastic place to explore and experience nature throughout the seasons. 

Nature Explorers Forest School 

Weekly, term time sessions on Wednesdays and Fridays, for children aged 2-14 years. Join our experienced and enthusiastic Forest School team as they facilitate outdoor adventures, supported risk taking, outdoor play and nature connection opportunities. Forest School is about the process and not the product. Children are free to create, learn, have fun and develop. A typical session involves games, nature arts and crafts, tool use, fire lighting, campfire cooking, free play, exploration and community.
