At The Bothy we specialise in selling hand-made items in wood, willow and reclaimed metal made by local crafts-folk, plus locally sawn timber planks and carefully sourced vintage items. All to adorn home or garden and to create wildlife friendly spaces.
Hand-in-hand with our promotion of woodland craftwork, we run a programme of courses which teach skills in willow weaving. The forestry side of our business generates some of the material which we use or sell e.g. logs, kindling, hazel bean poles.
We promote the National Forest as a huge asset to the local community, wildlife and as a growing economic resource.
