Description

Hautbois Activity Centre is the perfect venue for schools and groups to come for a fun and educational visit. We have a 45 bed house, 7 campsites with room for 340 campers, a 48 bed Reedcutters Village and over 20 on-site activities waiting for you to come and enjoy. The Centre has been awarded the 'Learning Outside the Classroom' quality badge - we combine learning and safety into an accredited scheme, making it easier for learning facilitators to take school children on educational visits.

Hautbois Activity Centre is based in a 28 acre estate 8 miles north of Norwich City Centre in Coltishall, Norfolk. The centre has public transport links with a bus stop approximately half a mile away and the Wroxham railway station approximately two miles away.

Between 9.00am and 5.00pm staff will be on-site to assist you. Overnight a Duty Staff Member will be on call in case of emergency but is not resident on-site.
