A Helpful Guide
Let us take some of the stress out of organising for you with some handy tips and guides...
Just think you've set up camp, you've got the water heater on, the wood for the fire's all collected and dry...all of a sudden the wind picks up and the rains coming down...
Oh wait, it doesn't rain inside, so why not take advantage of one of our three buildings...
All buildings feature modern amenities such as central heating, large areas to socialise and well-appointed kitchens for making that all-important grub ready for your group after a hard day exploring.
Our buildings can cater to varying group sizes of 14 – 50, maybe you have a whole district and need to sleep 100. We can meet this too.
It’s not just for residential visits for Scouting and Guiding as we often hire out the buildings for other uses such as School Residential trips, Leader training, Duke of Edinburgh, and many more. We're sure you'll find what you need, but If you’re not sure, just ask!
