Reviews for our Bushcraft Courses

"Phil Brooke is a truly excellent tutor of bushcraft and living history skills. He has a broad knowledge base and deep understanding of outdoor living skills, natural history and craft. But key to all of this is his ability to deliver this effectively by being very personable and somehow allowing people to progress at their own pace whilst simultaneously ensuring everyone gets to the end result.

I have had the pleasure of learning from Phil over some time now and on top of his knowledge, personal attributes and experience, from a peace of mind perspective, Phil will also go out of his way to make sure people are safe and comfortable with how things are going.

For all of the above reasons, I would not hesitate in recommending Phil's tuition and look forward to future opportunities to learn from him."
