What we offer on a school trip
The award winning Centre was established in 1982 and is based on a farm house and buildings in 25 acres of beautiful woods, fields and river valley. The only outdoor centre in the world we believe to have it's own vineyard! It is a family run Centre and we aim to give every visitor the best outdoor experience they have ever had. There are many exciting, fun and challenging outdoor pursuits with a strong emphasis on team work and the environment.
We feel we are very different from most centres in our holistic approach both to our visitors and the environment. We try to keep the gardens as attractive as possible, growing all our plants organically. We have planted 10,000 native trees throughout the estate, reinstated hedgerows, and have rare breed sheep, pigs, a Shetland pony, a donkey, chickens and bee hives. We have a strong environmental ethos and have held the Gold Green Business Award for six years.
We have a wide range of over 40 activities and outdoor pursuits to suit students from seven years upwards. These range from canoeing, high ropes, climbing wall, two 240 metre zip wires over the river, assault course, archery range, air rifle range, low ropes, fire lighting, tree climbing, grass toboggans, raft building and racing, tunnelling, animal feeding, cooking in a clay oven, crafts, history, sustainability and river projects, problem solving games and tasks. As a Centre which was founded over thirty years ago we are very experienced and knowledgeable in what teachers are looking for in a trip, and constantly have extremely positive feedback at the end of their stay - this inevitably results in repeat bookings for the following year.
