The Cart Shed is a charity based in North Herefordshire that offers opportunities to try something new and improve well-being; to find friendships, a sense of belonging and a place of calm, in a supportive, caring environment.

Our woodlands lend themselves to enabling individuals to overcome and accept episodes in their lives they find difficult to live with; such as a result of the loss of a partner or close friend, difficult working conditions, or poor health.

We work with individuals from all backgrounds, lifting labels and minimizing stigma. There are no walls, badged health professionals or waiting rooms...Just the peace of the woodland.

Please feel free to browse our website to learn more about how we support our community and how you can take part in our fun courses. Don't hesitate to get in touch, we are always just a click or phone call away, should you require further information.

About The Cart Shed

Wow what a wonderful place. I spent the afternoon at the Norton Cannon site today and had a fantastic time. I met some amazingly talented people and was made to feel so very welcome. I am looking forward to spending more time there in the new year and excited about what I will create. Thank you to everyone at the cart shed.

I’ve had an excellent day at the cart shed today working on the raw craft skills. Definitely a must. A very relaxed team and the participants are so friendly. The lunch is superb and ample. Thank you to you all

A truly amazing outdoor setting, both my daughters 10 and 7 year old have visited here over the summer with other Armed Forces families children. They have enjoyed learning and developing new skills ( den builds, cooking, fire prep and much more) All the staff are fabulous! 5*****

We, at The Cart Shed are Nemophilists. It is a word that hasn't really been used for over 100 years – but it is a word that surely deserves a comeback!
