Where Are We

We are completely immersed in nature here on our peninsula in Studland on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, watching our heath, shoreline and woodland change throughout the seasons is a constant source of inspiration for us. We have designed our foraging and wild food adventures to get you close to nature and to let us guide you through what makes this area of Dorset so special and unique.

Kayaking Tours Reviews

Just could not be improved! Dan was excellent, the session was well equipped, the memories will last forever. I've been coming to Dorset for holidays since I was five, this is the best time I have ever had. Thank you.

Deb

Absolutely loved our kayaking adventure, which was a first for our family. John was great, showing us sights as we went round and our boys loved looking in the rock pools. It is definitely the best way to get up close to Old Harry Rocks, we would highly recommend it, and can't wait to do it again.

Julia

What a fab trip! My daughter and I joined Dan on a 3 hour paddle along the shore, enjoying the scenery and bird life. Then we reached Old Harry Rocks and had a great time weaving around the arches, and pulling in to a cave. Dan is the perfect leader - cheerful, relaxed; his love of the sea and nature is infectious. And just as important, behind all this he is an absolute pro and puts safety first. His coaching approach is so subtle, it's like a mate giving you some tips. I will definitely book with Dan again, and bring more friends and family!

We had an amazing morning. Thanks especially for organising the seal, a fantastic experience we will never forget.
