Venue Hire – Information, Enquiries & Bookings

Deer Wood Venue Hire

New Deer Wood Logo

The Deer Wood Trust is a not-for-profit social enterprise.

Our mission is to reconnect people and nature through participation in experiential learning and well-being in a woodland setting.

We welcome like-minded people who wish to hire Deer Wood as a mindful *Eco-venue for special events, which tread lightly in the natural environment.

Please note * Deer Wood is entirely off grid & is a non-smoking, plant-based venue.
 Important considerations before booking:
  • As a working Conservation woodland, we have Biohazard security measures in place due to the prevalence of tree diseases. It is imperative that all visitors dip their feet in the footbath near the entrance before walking into the main part of the wood.
  • Parking is limited to up to 12 cars or 2 mini-buses, so lift sharing is recommended.
  • Please note, as an outdoor venue we do not have adequate dry secure storage for any other specialist equipment for retreat days, such as blankets, yoga mats, cushions, etc.
  • However, practitioners that have equipment to unload may drive it directly to the Learning Shelter area and unpack, then park their car in the allocated parking spaces.
  • We reserve the right to refuse bookings whose activities we feel may be detrimental to the woodland environment and the wildlife within it.


Please read the recommended types of earth-friendly activities in the table below.

If you are at all unsure if your intended activity is in line with these guidelines please e-mail Lisa:
