Schools on a residential Bundle

The Lodge, Farm House, Base Camp, Woodlands and 2 The Woodlands all have their own fully equipped kitchen for you to self cater.  You can bring food with you or you can organise a supermarket delivery which is a good way to make buying the food for your visit less onerous and most of the major supermarkets will deliver to the site.

If you do organise a food delivery, please ensure you are on site to take the delivery of it (unfortunately we cannot take the delivery on your behalf).  Also, please reference the school name when booking so that the office staff here know where to direct the driver on arrival.

We will shop for all your meals, from your evening meal on day 1 to your sandwich lunch on your last day (groups usually bring a packed lunch from home for the first day).  The food will be mainly home cooked and the menus are designed to consider both healthy eating with the requirements of young people and adults during an active residential visit.  We will also provide a 2 course evening meal ready for you to put in the oven each day along with ingredients for you to make your continental breakfast and packed lunch on each day and a supply of tea, coffee, squash and biscuits.

Shop & Prep is subject to availability of our outside caterers.
