About Hatfield Forest

We have been based at Hatfield Forest, Essex since 2010. Hatfield is owned and managed by the National Trust. It is an ancient hunting forest mentioned in the Doomsday book. The Forest covers 1,049 acres of woodland, wood-pasture with ancient trees, lake and marsh. It is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a National Nature Reserve.

It’s approximately 40 minutes north east of London by car, just off Junction 8 of theM11 motorway and Bishops Stortford.

Currently, all of our Tracking, Bushcraft and Wildcamping courses take place at Hatfield Forest.

We are grateful to the National Trust team for their support.
