❄ Merry Christmas & Happy New Year ❄

Pupils walking in the snow

The centre is quiet this week as schools are busy with Christmas fairs, nativity shows and carol singing – we hope that everybody is having a fantastic time.

As strange as a quiet centre seems to us – we’re used to it bustling with excited groups – we’re making the most of it by making some improvements to the buildings, checking equipment and preparing for our Christmas and New Year guests.

We would like to thank you for your continued support – as all of our customers help us to provide outdoor experiences and adventures for young people through their use of the centre.

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and many exciting adventures in the New Year!

Easter Breaks 2019

With Easter just around the corner – the Easter eggs will be in the shops soon… it’s never to late to start planning your next getaway.

We currently have some availability over the Easter weekend from Friday 19th – Monday 22nd April (minimum of a 3 night booking), please see our website for more details.  With different areas/schools having different school holiday dates for Easter it means we also have some availability for the 29-31 March, 1-5 April, 5-7 April, 12-14 April and the 22-24 April.

If Easter seems too far away then we have a few weekend opportunities available for small family bookings (2-10 people) and larger group / family bookings (up to 38 or 76 people).  Our winter discount period ends on the 15th February 2019 so even more of a reason to book a short break sooner rather than later.
