Most activities take place outside and it is important that you pack old but warm clothing. We can supply waterproofs, wellies and small rucksacks if needed. We also have a small stock of gloves, hats, scarves and jumpers. Your child may need clothes for a disco or talent show, but check with your school; they will provide you with a full list.

Boys and girls sleep in single beds or bunk beds on separate floors in warm, comfortable rooms. Toilet and shower facilities are close to each bedroom. Visiting teachers/group leaders sleep in rooms located on the same floor as their pupils. Bedding is provided.
We have specific facilities designed for pupils with physical disabilities to ensure they can take part.
All meals are provided during your child's stay. Breakfast, evening meal and supper are served in the dining room. Lunch will usually be a picnic (depending on the weather).
If your child has any special dietary requirements please contact our catering manager prior to your child's stay.
We have a small gift shop that sells toys, gifts and souvenirs so your child can remember their visit. The shop stocks things like pens, pencils, rubbers, rulers, small teddy bears and key-rings.
We recommend no more than £5 spending money but your school will advise you.
