About this event

Forest bathing is a gentle guided walk, enabling you to relax and quieten your busy mind so you can receive the medicine and wisdom of the natural environment.

Emma Capper is a certified ANFT nature and forest therapy guide. To find out more about Emma and the scientifically proven benefits of forest bathing for wellbeing please visit

Each unique walk will take place at a different location on the estate chosen to optimise the weather and seasonal conditions of the day. She will be in touch with you by email a few days before the date of your forest bathe with full details of where to park and meet for each walk. Forest bathing (‘shinrin-yoku’) means to take in the atmosphere of the natural environment through all your senses.

No need for a swimming costume!

This mornings woodland wander has really given me a sense of reconnection and coming home. I have dropped out of my head and into a wonderful child-like place, full of awe, joy and peace. Thank you.
