Designed to suit a forested environment, the Setter Forest Shelter can now be seen in some of the country’s most famous forests including Sherwood, the New Forest, Forest of Dean and many more.
Design of our forest shelters.
The design of the forest shelters features an open gable roof to provide minimal visual impact from end elevations. The supporting logs are designed to reflect the boughs of a tree reaching out to support the splaying roof. The roof pitch is quite shallow, once again to reduce visual impact and the materials have been chosen to sit within the trees in harmony. We use FSC certified timber that can be specifically home grown too. The standard sizes available are 6m x 4m, 9m x 6m (the most common) and 12m x 8m. Custom sizes are available too.
Here at Setter Play, we have also designed a mini forest shelter, known as a felling shelter, for shelter at stopping points on forest trails. As well as this, we can customise our Chatterbox outdoor classroom to suit any forest environment.
Purpose of our shelters.
The forest shelters are multifunctional, they offer shade and shelter within any environment and are designed to encourage and inspire children of all ages and abilities.
We recommend forest shelters for anyone looking to enhance children’s understanding of nature and wildlife, making learning more enjoyable and inspiring.
