After a day in the fresh air, everyone can get a cosy night’s sleep in the brand new accommodation, which sleeps up to 32 young people and 4 adults.

Create an outdoor learning experience your group will never forget.

Come and try an all-inclusive taster holiday, absolutely free for teachers or community group leaders AND their families on the dates above.
