Get outdoors, relax and have fun with Fat Squirrel Outdoor

These days it can be easy to get lost in the digital world of technology and mobile phones, but it's time to connect again with something more important... the great outdoors! And there are few better places to do just that in the UK than at Fat Squirrel Outdoor. 

Based in the woods of Oxfordshire, Fat Squirrel Outdoor offers a selection of engaging outdoor activities that immerse you into nature, so that you can enjoy your surroundings with friends and family without any distractions from the outside world. 

A couple of the activities on offer include: 

Woodland Café 

What could be better than enjoying food and drink in a rustic shelter in the woods? Enjoy a ride on the giant swing before tucking into some tasty sausages!

Private Campfire 

Gather around a campfire with good food, good friends and good vibes when you help yourself to marshmallow s'mores!

Axe Throwing

Unlike the wood-chopping axes you may be more used to, Fat Squirrel Outdoor uses tomahawk-style axes that are just as satisfying to throw at targets.

People also ask:

What should I bring with me?

  • A cushion: There are new rustic benches, you might like to bring a cushion or outdoor seat pad for extra comfort.
  • A blanket: You might also like to snuggle under a blanket around a campfire.
  • Torch: A torch is a good idea, particularly if your children want to play in the dark.
  • Please do not bring your own food and drink

What should I wear?

  • Wrap up warm: It is always better to take layers off than it is to be cold. In the winter, you should wear leggings under trousers and two pairs of socks and at least three top layers. Don't forget gloves and hats.
  • Waterproof jacket: Always a good idea - this is the UK after all!
  • Sturdy trainers, shoes or boots: The woodland is relatively flat but the ground is uneven and there are felled tree stumps. Sturdy boots or wellies are strongly recommended.   
  • Long trousers: Keeping legs covered all year round protects from scratches, bites and stings.

Can I bring my dog?

  • Well behaved and friendly dogs are welcome, but note that there are resident deer and other animals in the woodland so they must remain on a lead at all times. Please pick up after your dog too. 

How many people can I bring?

  • Campfire shelters comfortably host 6 to 8 adults seated. The whole venue can host 120 people.    

How is food served?

  • Food waste is kept to a minimum and food is served in mess tins, using stainless steel mugs when posisble. Please note that this is an 'off-grid' location, so all gas, water and power has to be generated, that does mean that sometimes things go a little slower than you might expect. 

Is there a bar?

  • There is a bar selling a small range of beers, cider, wine and soft drinks. However, alcohol is only sold when there are no activities taking place. You can also purchase some additional snacks and 'magic fire' that changes the colour of your campfire flames. 

What can the kids do?

  • Kids are free to play in the woods: There is a giant swing and there are lots of giant sticks for building dens. Please note that any dens already standing are built by children, so they are not particularly sturdy. 

What are the Health and Safety procedures?

  • Please keep your children away from the rifle shooting area (behind the canvas walls).
  • Fire safety: Please make sure that your children behave safely around the fires, Fat Squirrel Outdoor are happy to give fire safety talks. Fires must be kept in the pits and it is asked that people don't move burning sticks around. If dangerous behaviour is spotted, Fat Squirrel Outdoor reserves the right to ask people who don't keep their children or everyone else in the woodland safe to leave.     

What happens if the weather is bad?

  • Rain: The camp area is fairly sheltered so, events are not cancelled or closed for rain unless there has been a severe weather warning. Your shelter will be waterproof and the cover is fire retardant so it is ok for fires to be inside the shelters on wet evenings, you can sit under cover.
  • Windy: It isn't safe to be under trees in high winds and events may be cancelled when the wind is strong. If an event is cancelled, you will be offered an alternative date.   
  • Snow: For light snow it is likely that events will go ahead - please dress appropriately for being outdoors in the snow. If we need to cancel due to heavy snow, you will be offered an alternative date.   

What is it like in the woods?

  • There are no footpaths: The woodland is kept as natural as possible to retain its charm. The ground is relatively flat but it is uneven and there are some trunks from felled trees to watch out for.
  • Toilets: We do have a toilet and hand-washing facilities, there isn't a baby changing unit but babies are allowed to be in the wood and for alfresco nappy changing. 
  • Shelters without electricity: All accommodation is canvas - we do not have a building and there are no phone charging facilities. We do not have mains electricity or gas - so some things take a little longer.
  • First aid: Fat Squirrel Outdoor staff are first aiders and we have first aid facilities.
