With over 20 years experience of fieldwork and outdoor learning here at Naturesbase, we believe learning should be an adventure whether it is enquiry fieldwork or one of our other unique challenging experiences. Situated within 10 acres of farmland and wildlife, and with only one group staying at a time, we design programmes to meet the specific needs of your groups age and ability.

Would your primary class like to....
collect eggs each morning for breakfast or bottle feed lambs?
build shelters & cook over fires lit with their own spark?
make and bake a pizza in an earth oven?
go night time orienteering and hunt for bats at dusk?
camp out in wonderful safari style tents around the fire?

Or for older students of geography and ecology, Naturesbase prides itself in the quality of its fieldwork courses.

Whether you opt to teach yourself, buy into some tuition or have a fully tutored course, our on site presence and wealth of experience will mean you will receive access to the best sites, resources and facilities.
