In 1980 Wilderness Wood was bought by the Yarrow family. Run by Anne and Chris, the 2000 year old wood with a small barn, turned into a well known and loved local attraction; the wood remained in the family until April 2014.


Wilderness Wood is now owned by the Morrish family; Dan, Emily, Frank, Nina and Alexandra. Continuing to manage the woodland, they are keen to get everyone involved in working throughout the wood.

Andrew Coates continues to provide a fantastic array of woodland products from fence posts to garden furniture, as well as firewood, kindling and charcoal.

Lucy Clark runs a wonderful Forest School based in Wilderness Wood, providing learning experiences for children of all ages, as well as offering children's parties.
