The Heartwood Forest sleepover gives us all the opportunity to experience Langley Wood in a whole new way. Building your own shelter, cooking food over an open fire, learning bushcraft skills, woodland games, spear making… the list goes on! This year it stayed dry, which was great – although last year’s heavy rain didn’t stop us enjoying ourselves!

We all really enjoyed it – can we come again next year, please?!!


Langley Wood and the Summer Festival field early on the Sunday morning – a fantastic view to wake up to! It’s a pity it is only 1 night a year, but it makes it all the more special!


Please remember that camping at Heartwood Forest is not normally permitted, and fires should never be lit for any reason. The fires at the sleepover are very carefully controlled and are in fire pits, in order to ensure that the woodland is not damaged in any way.

Join us for the annual Heartwood Summer Festival – our outdoor celebration of trees and woodland – a day of fun for all the family.

It’s back and bigger than ever. With all the traditional woodland crafts, bodging, willow weaving, woodland art, bird box and bug hotels making and storytelling. New for this year are foraging workshops.

The farm animals will be here, with the addition of horses that you can meet and greet. The steel drums will also be making a return, as well as Morris dancing, and much more.

Enter the “Great Heartwood Bake Off”. The three adult categories are:

  • Victoria Sponge
  • Strawberry Jam
  • Savoury Quiche

Also this year there is a children’s category – 12 decorated cup cakes

All cakes must be in the judging marquee for 12 noon – judging will begin at 12.20pm.

Bring your Teddy Bear for the picnic dressed as a character from history – judging will begin at 12.15pm
