Forest Bathing / Shinrin-Yoku
Forest Bathing (Shinrin-Yoku) is a traditional Japanese awareness meditation, proven to be a profound antidote to anxiety, depression, fear and tension. You will be taken upon a simple forest walk, whereupon your guide, Helena, will facilitate and enable a sensual immersive experience, whereby the forest languages of renewal, growth, change and impermanence will become your experiential second nature. You will develop a sense of inner peace and stillness that will be supported and encouraged by nature's living, ever-changing process. Absolutely no experience necessary. The requirements are a willingness to let go of your troubles, fears, worries and anxieties. Other things to note Wear warmer clothes than usual as we will spend time being still in the woods and in the shade of the forest canopy. You may also wish to bring something to sit on during sit spot practice. Great for groups and team building too. I also work with Forest Garden, Shovelstrode that is located 4 miles from the location of this Forest Bathing experience.

Groom and walk miniature ponies near London
Star the pony and I will meet you at our meeting point where we will carry out introductions and cover safety tips, before we head off for the walk. We will walk up the lane and through the fields, going at the ponies pace and allowing them to browse on the plants in the hedgerows. We’ll also collect cuttings and weeds to take back with us for their pony friends (in season only). You will learn about wild plants and trees and how they benefit the ponies diet, plus more about pony care and behaviour. We will finish the walk back at the pony field where you will brush their coats and manes and tails, while the ponies tuck into their lunch. You will be able to really get to know the ponies as individuals and see their different characters and personalities. With a calm and gentle approach, it won’t take long before they are queuing up for a scratch from you. Other things to note This is a leisurely walk that is perfect for animal lovers. If you cannot see a date or time that suits you, please contact me to request another date. All children must be accompanied by an adult. No open toed shoes or sandals. The ponies cannot be ridden, this is for walking and grooming only. We are easy to reach via train from London Bridge to Knockholt station, then 5min uber.
Alpaca Trek through a magical woodland
Grab an animal-loving friend and head to the picturesque Lost Gardens of Sevenoaks to meet and walk our friendly alpacas. Beginning with a short safety demonstration, learn fascinating facts about alpacas and their homelands in South America. Once you’ve become acquainted with your alpaca friend, go for a tranquil walk together, through 11 acres of stunning woodland in the Kent AONB of the Greensand Ridge. You will personally get to lead your alpaca pal. Our adorable alpacas love to lead small covid-safe groups through The Lost Gardens of Sevenoaks, showing off their favourite snacking spots as they weave their way through the wild rhododendron forest. You’ll even be able to feed them tasty treats and don’t forget to grab a selfie with your new four-legged friend! Afterwards you can learn how to tend for these cutest of animals, including mucking out and grooming their soft fur, together with handfeeding them their favourite carrot sticks. Alpaca treks are fun for the whole family and children three and older especially get a great deal of joy from meeting our alpacas. Please note that all children booked on a trek must be accompanied by an adult, and that while children of all ages are welcome, we suggest you bring a baby carrier for youngsters rather than a buggy, unless you're feeling particularly strong.
Wine tasting and vineyard tour
From April until October we will take a tour of my Sussex vineyard where we will show how we maintain the vineyard and care for the vines and then we will go for a wine tasting in our tasting room which has amazing views across the vineyard. I always take the tour on Saturday and Sunday but you may be with my amazing co-hosts on other days Other things to note This is a fun experience and doesn’t require any prior knowledge. Throughout the tour we will follow social distancing if in force and also at the end during our wine tasting. We will have hand sanitiser available Fancy a private tour - this also great for groups and great for teams. So please contact us directly and request a time and date that suits
Afternoon Tea and meet the alpacas
Situated on the border of Kent and East Sussex and lucky to have stunning views that look out on a part of the largest area of medieval landscape still existing in Europe, we will welcome you to our home and then introduce you to our alpacas who definitely weren't part of the medieval landscape in this country but who fit right in now! You would never know this view existed unless you visited our private home and small holding. Stroll into our paddock and we will introduce you these inquisitive and cute characters who are very friendly and enjoy meeting new people. They also love carrots which you can feed them as well as take lots of photos. We have 16 alpacas ranging in age from 9 months to 20 years old. After hanging out with our alpacas you will be served a delicious and traditional Afternoon Tea in our garden overlooking the paddock, the alpacas and the view. Our tea is all home-made and a lot is home grown, like the cucumbers in your sandwiches and the courgette in your tarts and cake! Other traditional goodies include scones , Victoria sponge & more. Your scrumptious tea is served on vintage china with vases of homegrown flowers from our flower field adding the final touch to your quintessentially English Afternoon Tea experience. The tea is served in our marquee. When you have finished your scrumptious feast you are welcome to walk in our meadow.
Walk a micro pig
You'll be greeted personally by a member of the Huckleberry Woods team who will take you to meet the pigs and help you choose the perfect pig for you to walk and may recommend a particular pig. There'll be an introduction on how to walk your piggy to maximise enjoyment for both you and the piggy and then off you go. Please note, the pigs are now grown up and well past the tiny piglet stage. They're about the size of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Your walk will be accompanied by an experienced and knowledgeable piggy handler and enthusiast who will be delighted to share all sorts of piggy facts and stories with you. You'll have plenty of opportunity to stroke the piggies, take photos and ask questions during your walk. You can stop to greet the pgymy goats, donkeys, sheep, alpacas, ducks, turkeys and chickens as you go. The pigs go at their own pace, they may amble about slowly or be feeling a bit more energetic - it all depends on the piggy on the day and how much fruit there is on the ground for them to graze. At the end of the walk we head back to the piggy's house for a well earned rest and a hand wash. Length of walk is around 20 minutes before the pigs head home. Please note piggy walks are for one person (aged 4 years and above) only - it's not possible to share a piggy. You're welcome to stay and see the other miniature animals after your experience
The Hidden City of Canterbury
The Tour is based on the History of the City, and its architecture it also covers several aspects of English Language, and the origins of phrases we take for granted. The duration is around 2 hours, and it's a gentle walking pace around the city. Canterbury's history stretched back over the millennia, from pre-Roman settlement to the present day city bustling with visitors, students, and locals alike. The footsteps of Pilgrims, and parsons, are etched into its fabric and the tour takes you in their footsteps. The tour is fully accessible for anyone in a wheelchair or with mobility issues, which given my work with the elderly I feel it's important to be inclusive. You will not find this tour in any guide book. All content is exclusive to this tour. Please note under 14 Year-olds will be admitted 'free of charge', but must be accompanied by a full paying adult, unaccompanied children will not be admitted. Re Parking and transport questions please use the online messenger and I can help with where to park, walking directions, bus routes and or rail routes. I am only a message away and ready to help answer any questions you may have. The Meeting Point is right by the Canterbury Christchurch Gate, signposted from all over the city, no more than 10 minutes walk from all the car parks and the city stations. Other things to note As it's a walking tour, on city streets, just be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and be sure to dress for the English Climate, i.e. on a sunny day bring an umbrella, just in case.
Mini donkey walk in an ancient orchard
You'll be greeted personally by us and we'll take you over to meet the donkeys and introduce you to them and their individual personalities. There'll be an introduction on how to walk your donkey to maximise enjoyment for both you and the donkey and then off you go. Your walk will be accompanied by me or my co-host and I'll be delighted to share mini donkey facts and stories with you. You'll have plenty of opportunity to stroke the donkeys, take photos and ask questions during your walk. You can stop to greet the miniature pigs, Teddy Bear lambs, alpacas, goats, ducks and chickens as you go and you'll usually encounter several wild brer rabbits along the way. At the end of the walk, we head back to the stable for a ginger nut biscuit (for the donkeys!), a well-earned rest and a hand wash. Length of walk is around 30 minutes depending on the speed of the donkeys on the day. You're welcome to look around and see the other miniature animals while you're here. You have to be 9 years old or older to walk the donkeys. (Younger children aren't able to accompany the donkeys on their walk.) Other things to note Stout shoes/wellies. Must be steady on your feet to take part in this experience. Children under 9 will not be able to accompany the walk I'm afraid. They can spend time in the little play area while you're walking the donkeys. Great experience for couples.
Milkwood Botanical Candle Workshop
I will introduce you to a carefully selected range of essential oils and then guide you through the process of using the essential oils to create your own bespoke scent blend for your candle. We will explore the benefits of using natural ingredients and how scent stimulates the olfactory system evoking old memories and helping to create new ones. Then you will learn how to combine your oil blend with natural wax before hand pouring your own candle to take home. The 90 minute duration time is a guideline as with only one or two guests it might be slightly shorter running time as the teaching is more 1:1. The timing can also vary due to how long guests take experimenting with oils during the blending - I encourage a lot of experimenting and trying out the more unusual oils with old favourites. It is worth noting your candle will need to set for an hour before you can take it away (if you want a smooth top!) it is fine to pop back when convenient, they will be carefully labelled! If you would like more info about Milkwood please check out our website and instagram @milkwood_margate We like our workshops to be welcoming and inclusive so if you have any requests, sensory preferences or need more detailed information just send me a message in advance - i'll be happy to accommodate. Please also note the workshops take place in a queer friendly space.

Learn how to throw axes in Margate
After a warm welcome to our throwing cages we'll jump right into a safety briefing. This covers how to stay safe, scoring and competition rules (we can't have any cheating at crunch time can we?). Then it is to the reason you guys are all here, the AXES. We'll run through the basic technique, how to hold and how to throw the axe. Once we're through this, it is down to you to have a go! I'll be on hand throughout the session, watching your throw, offering advice on how you can improve. What is really important to me is that you start to understand your own technique so when you finally leave, you're a fully fledged axe ninja! Once the basics are out of the way it's quickly onto a wide selection of new throws, double-handed, throwing with the axe head facing backwards, throwing 2 axes at once. These will all help you to develop a strong technique in time for our rapid fire round and then ..the team COMPETITON! Pit your skills against the others in your group, competition mode always brings out some strong axe game! Finally, If we have any time left over at the end I'll show you a trick shot or two that only the pro's get to use Other things to note We are unable to accept bookings from those under 16 years of age or pregnant. Guests will not be permitted to partake in the activity if they are intoxicated and please wear sensible shoes, no sandals!
