What we do

We offer residential stays and non-residential visits to a variety of groups such as schools, Churches, families, uniformed groups and charity organisations . Depending on a groups preference, a visit to us can include adventure activities, or we can simply provide the space to run a non-activity programme or conference.

During the year we also provide package holidays for families and individuals:


  • The centre can accommodate 69 guests on site in dorm style cosy bunk bedded rooms.  Many bedrooms are en-suite.  Winter 2016 saw us upgrading rooms and adding smaller leaders rooms as well.  Our bedroom plan can be viewed HERE but pease note that where multiple groups are in residence, allocation will be organsied by our office team.
  • 2 lounges with open fires and AV facilities are available for guest use.


  • On site activities

  • Games room
  • Drying Room
  • Sports Barn and Climbing Wall (from late March 2020)
