Woodlands Adventure has the true feel of a traditional Outdoor Centre. Rural in location and portraying the natural woodland feel of the 36 acre area within which the Centre is situated.

Aspects which enhance the feel of the Centre are the log cabin effect of the accommodation block & recreational building, the extensive woodland grounds, open areas and the disparate location of the activities which allow the whole area to be explored and utilized.

Woodlands Adventure provides an outdoor education experience to groups who are primarily disadvantaged in some way or shape.

Why is this venue great for School Trips and Educational Visits?

All packages will be the offer of a liaison visit with a member of the senior instructional team. The aim of this meeting will be to tailor your visit to meet the individual needs of your group and your curriculum.

(Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award placements are available)
