  •   I had a wonderful, magical, inspiring, informative , practical and uplifting visit to Rob's Discovery forest garden. He was very punctual and efficient hosting my visit and very clear, helpful and thoughtful in delivering his excellent experience and knowledge about his Forest Garden. He gave me many tips for starting my own project and was very open to questions and helpful in answering all that I asked. For those interested in AgroForest Gardening and permaculture, I would definitely recommend this experience and visit. It was just what I was looking for. Thank you!

      Such a special place and a lovely experience. It was really inspiring to see what can be done with a hectare and an imagination. Rob has created a beautiful haven and home.
    Rob's knowledge of bees, plants, his animals and pest control was impressive and his videos on YouTube barely do his home justice. Thanks for a thrilling tour, Rob. We will re-visit.

      Highly recommend visiting Rob for his forest garden experience. Rob's communication was clear on the lead up to the visit, making the meet as easy as possible. The actual tour was superb! Rob is very passionate and has a knack of explaining things in a way that makes sense, he is also extremely knowledgeable through his years of experimentation; so regardless of your prior knowledge you will definitely get a lot out of it.

      This was a remarkable experience because it echoed and responded to a range of issues such as sustainability, ecological balance and biodiversity that are becoming increasingly important to all of us. What made the presentation so compelling and memorable was that, completely unexpectedly, we had met a man who, starting from a level of knowledge and understanding that sounded as though they were not much greater than our own, had addressed and found his way through these issues. Rob is a well-informed (and, happily, not academic) guide who is passionate about the subject of forest gardens. We had an absorbing and fascinating two hours with him and left feeling uplifted and inspired. I thoroughly recommend this experience which may just change the way you look and life.

      Rob's knowledge on forest garden is amazing. He is very kind and willing to share his knowledge happily. He generously shared many samples from his garden for us to try planting in our gardens, sensing our avid interest. Also, he continued the tour for longer than the advertised time as we had many questions. We will be definitely coming back with some more of our friends. Thank you Rob for a wonderful time. You give us hope that in this world, one doesn't have to be consumeristic to thrive.

      Rob was just as delightful in the flesh as on telly where I?d seen him first.
    I was the only one on the tour today. He is full of information and happy to share his experiences. I was given loads of cuttings to get me off to a flying start- it feels like new beginnings for me. I?ll be back in a sunnier season. Thanks, Becca

  •   Such a wonderful, informative experience. I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in gardening, nature, permaculture, sustainability, ecosystems, looking after animals or the connection between us and nature. Rob was a brilliant tour guide with a vast knowledge on a lot of subjects, he answered all my questions and I went home with a real sense of wanting to put what I had learnt into practice. All of this for a small price, set in a beautiful location. Brilliant

      Super experience visiting Rob's forest garden. We loved his passion for the lifestyle and great way of explaining everything. It was a really special day and Mum absolutely loved it.

    thumb Brigitte

      A wonderful experience, Rob is very knowledgeable. Worth a visit as it will spark your interest in creating a garden like his. He is friendly and you’ll love the chance to sample as you go round the garden.

    thumb Sophia

      I have just spent 2+ hours immersed in Rob’s knowledge and passion for his amazing forest garden. Curious to see plants, shrubs and trees from all over the world, which yield their flavours and scents. And bees. And geese. And ducks. And to see how Rob lives a unique lifestyle off his land. Now have serious land envy. A wonderful experience.

      We had the most wonderful autumnal afternoon exploring Rob's forest garden, he is so enthusiastic and natural, so careful of his environment, generous with his knowledge and fascinating to listen to. We left with pockets full of seeds, tummies happy with delicious samplings of leaves, roots and berries and my friend, whose "special" birthday it was, was given a precious lemon, picked straight from the tree. We couldn't have wished for a more enjoyable experience with a very special person in a very special corner of the mendips. Thank you so much Rob!

    thumb Shelley

      A really wonderful experience. Rob is a great host and the what he has created with his space is fascinating and totally inspiring. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the extra touches from the tea in the yurt, the cuttings we were given and extra insight into bee keeping really made it a very special experience.
