About Us

At The Rambler’s Mistress, we are more than just an organisation; we are a vibrant community of adventurous, like-minded women who share a deep connection with the natural world. Our mission is simple yet profound: to empower women through the art of bushcraft and outdoor adventure, allowing them to experience the transformative magic of the wilderness and, in the process, discover their inner strength.

Our Vision: Embrace the Wild

We believe that every woman has an untamed spirit that craves the untamed outdoors. Our vision is to ignite the flame of self-discovery, self-reliance, and self-empowerment in every woman who dares to venture into the wild. Through the age-old skills of bushcraft, we offer a gateway to a world where you can reconnect with the earth and your own inner wisdom.

Our Guiding Principles

Unity: We are a diverse group of women from all walks of life, bound together by a shared passion for adventure and the great outdoors. Our strength lies in our unity, and we celebrate the unique perspectives and talents each member brings to our community.
Resilience: In nature, we discover that life can be both beautiful and challenging. We learn resilience as we face the elements, build fires, and create shelter. This resilience doesn't stay in the woods – it accompanies us on our life's journey, reminding us that we can overcome anything.
Empowerment: Nature doesn't discriminate, and neither do we. We foster an inclusive and empowering environment where women of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities can build the skills and confidence they need to conquer the wild and life's challenges.

What We Offer

1. Wilderness Workshops: Our hands-on workshops cover a range of bushcraft skills, from fire-making and foraging to shelter-building and navigation. Whether you're a seasoned adventurer or a total beginner, there's always something new to learn.
2. Community Building: We organise regular meet-ups, camping trips, and events where you can connect with like-minded women and share your passion for the outdoors.
3. Mentorship: Our community thrives on the knowledge and support of experienced members. If you're new to bushcraft, we'll connect you with mentors who can help you on your journey.
4. Empowerment: Our programs are designed to boost your self-confidence, resilience, and problem-solving skills. We believe that every woman has the power to conquer the wilderness – and life itself.
5. Empathy and Inclusivity: We embrace diversity and ensure that our community is a safe space for all women. Our commitment to empathy, understanding, and respect makes Women in the Wild a truly unique and inclusive organisation.

Organisation Ethos

​​Escape the city on a Ramblers Mistress adventure with a guided nature walk of some of the most beautiful countryside and wildlife within easy reach of London. Our programme offers a rich tapestry of events for you to explore your inner and outer world including primitive survival skills, movement, breathwork, sharing circles, nature walks and so much more…
Join us in reforesting yourselves and the land, experience life in its purest and simplest form. The aim of the Ramblers Mistress is to offer a safe, neutral and judgement-free zone, where individuals who have or are currently undergoing varying forms of self-realisation - are able to freely express themselves in a loving, understanding and accepting environment, whilst offering support and space-holding to others.
Our day hikes are fully guided, women only walk with a focus on connecting with nature and reaping the rewards of time spent outdoors. We’ll be ambling through woodlands, meadows and riversides, spotting wildlife and soaking up the benefits of miles and miles of gorgeous green space. Leave the rat race behind and enjoy a slice of stunning English countryside while meeting like-minded women and making new friends.

Do anything, but let it produce joy.

Meet the Team

Naomi Aldwyn-Allsworth
"I am deeply passionate about nature and the power of time spent outdoors, which is why I started The Rambler’s Mistress: bringing like-minded women together and providing them with the opportunity to immerse themselves in nature and learn primitive skills."
Liz Marsland
Event Facilitator
"Nature teaches us so much about symbiotic relationships, respect for those around us, and balance in ourselves. There is no better feeling than being a guide for a group and seeing a community being created around these authentic and revealing experiences."
Cat Rochefort
Outdoor Chef
"Cooking over fire allows us to connect with our food in a totally different way. When we strip away the technology and mod-cons of the indoor kitchen we are able to cook by instinct, using our senses to guide us. There’s a great sense of peace in switching off my phone, getting out under the trees and using smoke and flame to gently tease flavour from ingredients."
Only if we understand can we care. Only if we care will we help. Only if we help shall they be saved.
