Bioasis Venue Hire

Are you looking to run an event, course, residential programme or perhaps arrange a group weekend away? Are you fed up of the same old, uninspiring venues?

If the answer’s yes, then we should talk!

With two off-grid basecamps, set in wildflower meadows next to ancient woodland and close to a river estuary rich in wildlife our unique set up might be just what you’re looking for. Set on a private estate in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and with exclusive use of 1200 acres of saltmarshes, estuary, and SSSI woodland, The Bioasis is a very special place to host your event or course.

Our Bioasis basecamp hire options are fully flexible and appeal to a wide variety of groups and individuals, from freelancers looking to run their own bushcraft or nature reconnection programmes, to private groups wanting a unique escape for the weekend. The location and set up is also perfect for course facilitators in need of a nature rich environment in which to run professional qualification courses such as bushcraft, bat surveying or specialist ecology programmes. Scout groups, corporate team building, church groups and such like all work very well too, and we can provide a range of options from the basic package through to fully catered with activities and support staff.
