Woodland hire

You can support Tortworth further by hiring the arboretum for regular or special events. To date we have hosted a whole range of events from yoga and meditation, to drumming and orienteering!
It’s a fabulous location to host a party, reunion or wedding, end a Duke of Edinburgh expedition, or camp out under the stars with little to no light pollution beneath the beautiful canopy of native and exotic trees.
