We take pride in the environmental nature of the site by using a natural soak away,
solar lighting, recycling rain water for toilets and have recently been granted planning
permission for 3 Cob Pods (buildings made of sand, clay and straw). The site is a
native woodland, with Oak, Maple and silver birch, together with thousands of woodland
flowers as Daffodils, Snow drops, forget me-
The aim of the site is to show the next generation how we can live comfortably without it costing the earth, enabling visitors to try traditional skills and techniques in cooking (2 Clay Pizza Ovens), wood preparation (An undercover wood preparation area) and construction (cobstruction, building using sand, clay and straw). All of these skills are fun and interesting for all ages.
The 7 cubicled toilet block has been carefully refurbished to give the effect of
bringing the outdoors in. Being 2.5 acres, Blakeley Lane is an ideal size for a Sherwood
Forest hideaway with a play-
The site can be used by "camping exempt" groups only and due to access restrictions the lane needs to be accessed by mini bus, limited vehicles access applies. The site accommodates up to 160 and therefore whether you require the facility for a small or large groups we can accommodate you.
