New for 2021: Pond Dipping

Thanks to a grant from the People’s Postcode Lottery we are excited to announce that we can now offer pond dipping sessions at our Cannock Chase site from Spring 2021. We will also have our lovely new outside shelter in place by then too thanks to funding from Tesco’s.

Tanglewood offers Outdoor Play and Learning activities in Derbyshire and Staffordshire. We connect children and young people of all ages with nature by providing exciting and memorable experiences.


We are passionate about using the outdoors to deliver an exciting and innovative curriculum. Visit us on a school trip or we can come to you and deliver our workshops in your school grounds.


Let your child's imagination run wild. Tanglewood provides wonderful opportunities for children. We offer woodland birthday parties, family fun sessions, pre school groups and much more.


We love the outdoors and our aim is to give children the opportunity to love it too. We have over 50 years of environmental education experience between us, are fully qualified forest school practitioners, first aiders and are DBS checked.
