Description

   "Living in a world that will not move to the beat of your drum is distressing - it's something I see in my son almost      everyday. But, WilderMe offers a calm space; an opportunity for young, explorative children to run wild and free,      surrounded by adults that understand."

   “Nat and Geoff have created something very special offering opportunities for singing around the campfire, meeting other families facing similar challenges and joys of being a parent of an SEN child.”

WilderMe is a social enterprise in a unique place with a special mission to help calm busy minds and create tribes that thrive. You have incredible sea views from a meadow of wildflowers that’s home to deer, skylarks and all sorts of wildlife; firepits to sit out by as you watch the sunset over the sea. It’s a wonderful place to detach from the digital world and take time out to recoup and reignite  a connection to nature.

   “The entire family benefitted from the stay with the peace, tranquility and connection to nature offering a calming, relaxing space for everyone to switch off and recharge.”

You can wander down to the picturesque villages of Kingsand & Cawsand for tranquil beaches that offer safe swimming, or hire SUP's or kayaks. Meander along the South West Coastal path through ancient woodland and stunning scenery, meeting wild Dartmoor ponies along the way.

The six domes all share two showers and two compost loos in a trailer, but there are other standard toilet facilities available at the family campsite just over the hedge. A seventh dome serves as a communal space, with two double gas hobs and grills, cooking utensils, books, cards and seating. There are also firepits at each dome for cooking simple meals but it’s much more fun to let yourself be lured over to The Canteen at Maker Heights, where ex-River Cottage chef Nick Platt cooks up superb rustic food in the atmospheric setting of old Nissen huts.

The Canteen is only one part of the creative community that calls Maker Heights home, with musicians, artists and artisans running social projects, studios and workshops in an old army barrack. It’s one of the things, along with the good cause, the feeling of warmth and inclusivity, and the simple magic of being wild and free in a beautiful part of the world, that makes WilderMe the sort of place we're sure you'll absolutely love.

Due to limited spaces we kindly ask that all guests provide documentation of their child's diagnosis please. However, if you're still on the path to diagnosis, please don't worry! We completely emphasise it takes time, so please let us know if this is your situation.

If you have any questions about our breaks or activities you might like to do during your stay, please do get in touch, we'd love to hear from you! :)

Peace, Love and Pasties,

Nat & Geoff :)
