The Fairy Woods at Fedderate are a magical place to visit with young learners.  The woodland has been thoughtfully developed to lead children safely through sheltered passages as they discover the tiny fairies who have made their homes there. There are opportunities to develop literacy and numeracy skills through high quality outdoor learning experiences.  Children can also enjoy a wide range of forest schools activities appropriate to their age and stage or simply enjoy free play in the woodland play park.  I would recommend a visit- my girls loved it!

My family, friends and myself were lucky to be the first to experience the wonderful fairy woods.  It is magical and will feed the imaginations of all who visit.  It conforms to the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence and provides a hands on outdoor learning experience that will give the children the opportunity to experience an interesting and exciting way to become educated.  It is done in an active, practical way through using the outdoor environment.  Totally recommend you come as it is well worth a visit.

Loved everything about this! We did the guided tour in the morning with a 2 year old and two 4 year olds. They all had the best time and were totally absorbed… There were a lot of “awesomes” and “oohs” at the twinkly lights and fairy houses and at the few surprise friends along the way. The play park and mud kitchen at the end were a massive hit…as were the hot chocolate, toasted marshmallows and story around the campfire. The lady who runs it, Nikki, couldn’t have been more lovely and welcoming. Everything has been created with wheelchair users in mind too so very accessible. Go with warm, waterproof clothes and plan for 2-3 hours. Brilliant local place to support!

Visited the Fairy Wood today for the 1st time. Cannot recommend it highly enough – guided interactive tour through the Fairy wood, snack at the campfire & magical memories created in the Winter Wood including gorgeous Christmas decoration to take home. My boys loved it all and cannot pick a favourite moment. Nikki, her husband and staff were 1st class and ensure the safe departure of all customers on this snowy day. Thank you again.
