Inspiring a lifetime of adventure
Our traditional canvas bell-tents provide all the fun of living under canvas. Our tented village includes woodland seating in our covered chill-out area, table tennis tables built from pallets, games areas and motion-sensored lighting and night-toilets.
Group tents sleep 6 in bunk beds. Teacher/leader tents provide a touch of glamping, sleeping up to 2 with double-height air-beds and separate sleeping compartments. Our cosy teacher-zone, complete with fire-pit provides a great space to relax in the evening.
In the colder months or for groups preferring indoor accommodation we offer the comfort of dormitory-style lodges. Fully equipped with bunk beds and shower facilities the lodges are set in natural woodland providing an ideal base for activities
The centre offers a wide variety of exciting activities to enhance your Bushcaft and Team-building programme by adding the element of challenge and adventure. Evening activities and games finish with hot-chocolate and entertainment around the campfire.
