“A great day spent with Matt learning how to handle a knife when making tools from wood, starting a fire from basic materials, and creating cordage (rope) from thing you can find in the forest. Matt was conscious of safety, but also massively encouraging and enthusiastic. Highly recommended for some father & son (or daughter) bonding”. Jamie from Honiton

“Work colleagues and I went a an overnight bush craft experience a few months back with Dartmoor bushcraft. What an experience. Getting away from the daily grind and spending some time with colleagues and 2 very experienced instructors in a beautiful location was fantastic. I’ve gained some new skills but more importantly feel achievement and fresh.Thanks Matt and Barry”.

“The practical skills you gain from Dartmoor Bushcraft will give you the confidence to explore and enjoy nature. I made a fire using the bow drill technique!”
