Det skal I lave

“Forage your 5-a-day for free & make your own bespoke herb tea!”
Put on your walking shoes & come exploring the local wild plants of the Peak District. We will learn medicinal, culinary & other uses for many of the plants we find, brought to life with history, Folk-lore & anecdotes. Be prepared for the world to look a little different when you return, since you will probably be astonished just how interesting so many of our common wild plants are!
These Herb Walks are great for couples & private groups. They are relaxed & gentle, normally lasting about 3 hours, with plenty of time to stop & get to know the plants, including tasting & making tea with them where appropriate!
Our meeting point is next to the much loved Grindleford Station Cafe, with regular trains from Sheffield & Manchester.
Grindleford is surrounded by amazing walks, with Padley Gorge woodland river, Padley Chapel, & Bolehill Quarry’s magical oak & birch woodlands. We will be spoiled for choice which way to go & can decide together!
If you would like a time or date that isn’t shown, please contact me, it can often be arranged. Our meeting point may also be flexible for private bookings. Thank you!

COVID UPDATE: If you would like to make a wild herb tea, please bring your own flask of boiling water. Guests are required to keep 2 meters apart from anyone who is not “in their social bubble”.

Her skal du være

Grindleford is a great place for autumn & winter walking. Spoilt for choice, we can follow the river up Padley Gorge, Walk to Padley Chapel & the ruins of Padley Manor, or head up into the silver birch woodlands with views over the Valley....
We finish our walk at Grindleford Station Cafe, where an open fire burns through the winter months, and its chips & huge all day breakfasts (with vegetarian options) are second to none!

We loved our walk with Anna and would recommend it to anyone with any interest in nature. She is friendly and very knowledgeable, tailoring the walk to our interests and teaching us so much along the way. We tasted some incredible herbs and the tea she made was delicious, as was the homemade chocolate! The route itself was beautiful and Anna let us choose from different options to ensure the walk was perfect. We can’t wait to do another of these walks in future and to try some of the herbs she introduced us to at home.

Do this experience! Anna is the coolest! We were blown away by her knowledge of the wild herbs growing in the area. She took us on an absolutely beautiful walk and told us the most amazing stories about the local herbs. We drank tea made from the herbs we picked and Anna made us a raw, vegan chocolate with some herbs in it. So cool! A 5 star experience that everyone should do while in the Peak District. Anna really caters the walk to your needs and desires. We also loved her little dog "Pepper" who accompanied us on the walk. All in all, it was a wonderful day that left us in a great mood. You will not regret journeying with Anna into the forest.

What a wonderful knowledgable person Anna is, I couldn't recommend this more, our little group learned so much topped off with a view of the deer. Highly recommend this experience, worth every penny you will view your walks, your medicinal approach, your food and your drinks with a new curiosity and knowledge.

What a fantastic afternoon with Anna! It could not have been a better experience- highly personalised and perfectly paced. Learned so much about the science of herbal medicine (and there is a lot), culinary and medical uses of the huge range of herbs that Anna found for us, the culture and folklore involved. The Peak District is a spectacular backdrop and Pepper the dog kept us moving along. Most of all I came away with a new appreciation of the real value of herbal medicine- and this stuff is right under our noses and feet! Highly recommended.
