Wessex Wilderness Skills

Wessex Wilderness

Do you ever wander through woodland and just want to sit and breathe for a while? Wish for that feeling that you're welcome to stay in one place without the fear of trespass? Do you wish to 'connect' with your surroundings more? Learn how to 'thrive' and not just 'survive' with the resources nature provides? Wessex Wilderness Skills CIC would like to share their knowledge with you.

Their objectives are to promote physical and mental wellbeing, assist in an alternative form of stress reduction and provide an inclusive and welcoming environment to those experiencing social and domestic problems. As well as offering various bushcraft experiences to individuals, groups and especially families, the principles of their main aim still remain to benefit and encompass all of the community who seek a positive outdoor learning experience.

Live Music 
Enjoy live music and singing whilst you sip on a gin, or two! The perfect backdrop to any event,  one not to miss! 
Summer Raffle 

Could you win a day out in Dorset? A pet hamper? Or perhaps something tasty to take home? Summer Raffle tickets are just £1 each and the raffle will be drawn on the afternoon of the event. 


What's an event without a tombola! We are running a classic tombola with many different prizes, all money raised will go towards caring for rescue animals. Will luck be on your side?

Cool Down Zone 

It is important to keep your dog cool and so we have free access to our cool-down zone for everyone. We have paddling pools, wet towels, dog bowls and more! Make sure to pop by for a quick chill amongst all the fun. 

Dog Shop 

We have an array of different dog items available to purchase, including new and used items. We all love to treat our four-legged friends and you can have that 'feel good' factor knowing each item you purchase will help animals in need. 

Stall Holders 
With so many wonderful businesses in Dorset, we are so pleased to be bringing you an array of different stall holders. Bring those reusable bags because we are sure you are going to want to treat yourself and your pet to some lovely items. We also have ice cream, drinks and hot food to feast on!
