About Badocks Hideaway

The Hideaway Forest school, is located in beautiful Badocks wood in Henleaze. We enter Badocks wood through the gate on Lakewood Road and follow the stream to the end. This is a public woodland but The Friends of Badocks wood have granted us permisison to explore, investigate and play in the stream and woodland. The Hideaway Forest School believes every family should have regular access to a natural environment where they can learn through play, take risks and connect to nature.

The site benefits from:

  • Established woodland

  • Parking

  • Stream
