Lady learning how to light a campfire

Fat Squirrel Outdoor Co, Notgrove

Getting outdoors makes you feel better, sitting around a campfire warms your soul. You can put some real sparks into your romantic getaway with a fire lighting session at Fat Squirrel Outdoor. Learn how to light a fire without a match and toast marshmallows to make yummy s’mores, or better still try out cooking on your campfire. Enjoy a Fat Squirrel hamper of food – because food always tastes better outdoors and when its fire cooked it’s amazing. Looking for a slighty sharper experience – how does rural axe throwing sound? Throw axes and release your inner Viking spirit, whilst admiring the Cotswold countryside view. The sound of axes hitting the wooden target in the peace of the open countryside is strangely meditative. If it’s not a romantic break without your dog – we love them too! – they are welcome to come along.
