Welcome to Pogles Wood Explorers! We are outdoor learning specialists based in a lovely 3-acre woodland with a rich and diverse ecology. We offer a wide range of activities for children and adults, from curriculum-linked school sessions to holiday clubs, team building and John Muir Award days. We also host unique birthday parties and seasonal events in the woodland throughout the year.

Pogles Wood is a young woodland with several species of trees, a large wetland area and a wonderful variety of native wildflowers. Our cosy classroom, housed in a stable block and complete with wood-burner and small kitchen, enables us to run sessions whatever the weather. We also have indoor and outdoor compost toilets, an outdoor kitchen area (with its famous OzPig stove to keep us warm and cook up some tasty treats) and a large growing area with polytunnel.
