Important Information


You can paddle directly into our woodland using any craft you desire! There is a river map below detailing where Matchstick woods is in relation to the rest of the river. Please contact us if you need any other river based directions!

If you're arriving at the site on-foot, you can use the below map references to find your way

If you're driving, the closest you can get is the Willington Dovecote, at which point you have a 20 minute hike into the woods. You can follow the map references above to get there: there is a locked gate you can climb over, marked as the entrance to Matchstick woods, which leads to a forest track that leads to the clearings on the left hand side. Be sure to camp in a clearing, not on a path!


Each clearing has its own campfire circle. Using deadwood is prohibited because it is important to the woodland ecosystem. Please bring some firewood or purchase a bag of firewood from us when booking.


To make your trip even more enjoyable, you can pay for our Luggage Service, where you leave your luggage with us and we drop it off into your private clearing and collect it the following day. That way you get to paddle a nice light boat. You can also hire our campfire kitchen equipment (Grills, Kettles, Dutch Ovens) to enable you to cook over the campfire without ruining your best camp stove pots and pans! All these options can be added when booking.
