A fun and engaging trip that provided many a 'first' for the Year 5 cohort of children, both being away from families as well as an opportunity to engage with nature. Many thanks Bushcraft! (January 2022 - Primary School)




Fantastic experience. Some organisation queries but staff very attentive. (December 2021 - Primary School)




Boughton woods was a great trip. The pupils were able to experience something out of their comfort zones and experience the outdoors. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and engaging with the students. (October 2021 - Secondary School)




The students had a great day on the trip. The staff were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and knew how to engage the girls fully. They were happy to go the extra mile and were very accommodating. (October 2021 - Secondary School)




This was our first Ed Vis during the pandemic. We took our largest ever group of pupils to Bushcraft. Bushcraft Risk Assessments provided by The Bushcraft Company were extremely helpful in assisting us with our advance planning. The visit was full supervised by Bushcraft staff throughout and was as Covid safe as could be made. There were also 5 Westwood staff in attendance throughout the residential visit. We did have to make one complaint to Bushcraft whilst we were on the visit, the number and variety of activities was not what we had come to expect from Bushcraft, this was swiftly rectified after our complaint. the problem seemed to be due to a new site manager just not being fully au fait with usual practice (September 2021 - Secondary School)

Very good! Appropriate for our cohort of Year 5s. (June 2021 - Primary School)




I think they are having some challenges as a result of Covid with reduced staffing. It did impact the visit (June 2021 - Primary School)




Leaders were enthusiastic, very competent, knowledgeable and reliable. Activities and accommodation were suitable. Food was amazing. Children had a wonderful time. (December 2019 - Primary School)

Overall they are an excellent company but due to activities I would not send children over the age of 10. The staff that work there are excellent but quite often under staffed which puts a strain on the people working. (May 2019 - Primary School)




Right form first contact, everyone has been supportive, helpful, enthusiastic- can't recommend highly enough! (May 2019 - Primary School)




The staff at Bushcraft were brilliant. Their enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable approach to their job made pupils have an excellent camping experience (May 2019 - Secondary School)
