Our short-stay residential centre for young people is situated in a natural setting that is part of the Watling Chase Community Forest.

This beautiful countryside park comprises 140 acres of unspoiled parkland, yet is only 12 miles from the centre of London.

It combines an ideal location with low cost accommodation - probably the cheapest rate in London - and without the need for expensive travel to find a natural environment.

Our Centre will provide you with quality accommodation (for up to 36 people) where you can put together a programme to suit the needs of your particular group from a truly wide range of options.

We welcome bookings from schools, youth groups, Probation and Social Services, Foreign Exchange parties and groups of young people with special needs and disabilities. Whether for adventurous activities, a residential experience, learning about nature, challenge or simply fun, you will find we are the natural choice.

We can offer you and your group an extremely flexible residential experience at very reasonable prices.

Our Centre has everything you need to ensure that your group gains the maximum benefit from their residential experience with us. You can fully self-cater, part self-cater or have us cater for you - it is entirely up to you and part of our flexible approach to meet your needs.
