Starting 8th November - finishing 8th December

We have a highly engaging, educational and enriching programme for the next 5 week workshop,

All our sessions involve hands-on interaction with our animal ambassadors (including snakes, lizards, monitors and amphibians) under the careful supervision of our dedicated Jungle Hut team. At times we also include educational activities in the sessions and children create their own work folder and copy of their advert to take home once the 5 weeks is over.

Any questions please message us.

Book via the tab below and we look forward to a new term and lots of fun!


Due to the rising running costs we are experiencing here, plus the fees our Home Education Sessions will be rising by £1 per week per child from £40 to £45 for the 5 week term.

We’ve tried to hold off rising the cost but our overheads are extremely high now so we are needing to increase prices to keep going!

We really hope you continue to support us as we do absolutely love holding our `Home Ed groups.

This is recommended as a Drop off and Pick up session 

NEW FOR 2023:

We ask that our session are a drop off and pick up, as we would require the full use of the jungle hut for this term, but we are hoping the tearoom facing the jungle hut will be back open by the time this new term starts so you will be more than welcome to to get a rest and enjoy an hour an half with a coffee and a cake, but if it's not back open their is some lovely places to visit while the session is in swing.


During the session there is other lovely places to visit just walking distance from the jungle hut..

The Earlswood Lakes: Enjoy this 6.8-km circular trail just over from The Jungle Hut. Generally considered an easy route, it takes an average of 1 h 46 min to complete. This is a very popular area for birding, fishing, and hiking, so you'll likely encounter other people while exploring.

The Red Lion Pub: Traditional inn offering a relaxed atmosphere for classic pub fare, cask ales and wines, plus fires. A DOG FRIENDLY PUB. 

Ambleside Bistro and Garden Centre:Breakfast, Lunch, Afternoon Tea, Ice Cream, Coffee, Tea and

Cake, plus non alcoholic bar.
