Farafoot Bushcraft


Farafoot is a outdoor family run, company based on the Burwarton Estate in south Shropshire. We run woodland based bushcraft and survival courses for adults and kids on Brown Clee Hill, which is located amongst the beautiful and remote Shropshire Hills AONB.


Farafoot offers courses for adults and kids of all ages and is also the location for the Shropshire base for the Bear Grylls Survival Academy.







Farafoot guides people through all the skills, techniques and knowledge that you need to live comfortably in the natural environment. These Bushcraft courses are much much more than simply outdoor survival courses in that bushcraft courses will teach you how to live "generously" or comfortably outdoors.


Farafoot Bushcraft guides you through how vastly important fire is outdoors and how to light fires and what kind of fires suit which situations. The types of shelters that are suitable for different situations and that sometimes simpliest is best. Foraging for food that goes beyond just collecting leaves, but also involves hunting and the preparation of meat and other foods that taste fantastic and will provide you with much more than simply keeping yourself alive. Sourcing water that is safe to drink and tastes better than anything that comes out of a tap. Looking after yourself and generally keeping yourself sparkling clean in camp.


On top of this, Farafoot bushcraft guides people in all those craft skills that you need to live outdoors, such as cordage, hide tanning for clothing and footwear, basketry and bark vessel making to store or transport items, using tools and how not to cut off significant bits of yourself or your friend, tool making from scratch using flint knapping techniques to make blades that are far sharper than any steel blade or razor and how to make a decent bushcraft bed that will that will let you sleep like a "bush baby".


Choose from our extensive range of bushcraft courses, such as the introductionary Bushcraft Taster Course where we introduce a few of the basic bushcraft skills over the course of a day.


Our Overnight Bushcraft Tester Courses which provide a longer period where we can guide people through a far greater range of skills and provide a real test to an budding "Ray Mears" or "Bear Grylls".


For a real bushcraft experience, try our Long Bushcraft Weekends and Five Day Bushcraft courses where you will sleep in the same bed more than once, so you learn quite quickly how to get your bushcraft right.
