What makes us a great choice?
One of the main reasons our clients return year after year is the quality of our accommodation and activity sessions and the fact that we allow them to have sole occupancy of the Manor House. They enjoy our personalised care; Lesley is always available at the end of the phone or by email to answer any questions. We are a family run centre with a small, but highly professional team of qualified Instructors. Our instructors are all aged 21 years or over and hold the minibus driving licence.
The Manor House offers Activity Courses which offer full on adventure, from Climbing on Cornish sea cliffs to surfing some of the best beaches in Cornwall. Paddling in kayaks, sit-on-tops, or canadian canoes offer challenging experiences for young and old alike; team that with our massive BIG iSUPs for an amazing team building day!
Did you know we were the first Outdoor Centre in the UK to introduce BIG iSUPs? These are inflatable Stand Up Paddleboards which allow up to 10 children to learn to paddle together thus enhancing team work and communication skills . . . and also great fun!
You could also cycle the Camel Trail and explore the delights Padstow has to offer. See our list of activities below to choose your favourites!
Field Study trips could include visits to the Eden Project for self-led visits or the exceptional Workshops provided by Eden’s own educational team to provide a truly exciting day for students. The Manor House also works closely with the Blue Reef Aquarium so visits to the aquarium could be arranged out of hours providing a truly special experience for students and teachers alike.
Marine biologists are also available to support teachers wishing to run beach studies and the Manor House team are available for safety cover. Cornish Tin Mines, Tintagel Castle, Dame Barbara Hepworth Museum and Tate Gallery are also popular with our residential field study school groups.
