Hautbois Activity Centre welcomes back many schools year-on-year, always finding something new and exiting to offer, after a recent visit Norwich School wrote that: Hautbois House created new challenges, rousing adventures and great fun. Come for a relaxing break or an activity holiday, a day out or a camping break - we are sure that you will want to return again and again!
What makes us a great choice?
Activities such as climbing and canoeing encourage interaction with the outdoors and appreciation of the natural environment and habitats at Hautbois. Sustainable living can be seen in action through the environmental developments on the main house. We have several team building and initiative based activities that can help in the learning of new skills, increasing motivation and building team morale.
Hautbois Activity Centre is a beautiful 19th century house set in 28 acres of grounds on the River Bure in Coltishall, near Norwich. The activity centre boasts its own private cut onto the River Bure providing the perfect location for a safe introduction to water sports, or for more advanced trips along the river.
