We provide many different courses for our different clients – from programmes of personal and social development to those just wanting spend the afternoon by the campfire.

Through the rest of the year we are supporting youth groups, Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, Alternative Education projects or just providing accommodation for groups looking to access the rivers, countryside and forest that surround us.

We we pride ourselves in being an outdoor centre rather than a hotel. All guests, young and old, are expected to take on personal responsibility for their safety, the equipment, but also the environment and for the centre itself.

Our service strives to maintain a professional and friendly image. As a small team, we are able to offer a very personal, tailored experience where individuals can be developed and find adventure.
