All real experiences and all yours for the taking

Breathe in the fresh countryside air as you surround yourself with the beauty of the great outdoors. Feel your fingers gripping the cool nooks and crannies of a genuine rock face as you begin to climb skyward, then later that day, when you don your wetsuit and take an oar in hand, hear the water gently slap against your canoe as you paddle down the river. All real experiences and all yours for the taking.

Our unique network of properties spans the length and breadth of England and Wales’ most inspiring landscapes, which means we’re singularly positioned to offer teachers and pupils the widest range of authentic learning opportunities in the real outdoors.

We are very lucky to have hostels set in some truly stunning grounds, and they are yours to use whilst you stay with us. We offer experiences from toasting marshmallows over a fire pit, to a spot of target practice in our archery ranges, and a whole host of other options in-between. Plus we have hostels that are brilliantly situated for getting out and exploring nearby Roman forts and oodles of unique landscape features too.

Our residentials are designed to deliver positive powerful outcomes for young people, and provide magic moments that will live long in the memories of all participants and group leaders.

From the moment we arrived, the ‘special agent’ mission got the group hooked. All the activities were linked to the spy theme. I would recommend this residential to any year five or year six teacher.


Stonelow Primary School

I thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is absolutely lovely, the views are amazing. The residential itself was more challenging than I expected so I’ve learnt a lot. We also had more freedom than I was expecting, which I appreciated as I was one of the oldest.

My favourite activity was archery. I didn’t think I would get a bullseye but you boosted my confidence so I did. Thank you for making me feel so confident and happy.
