The centre is widely used by schools, youth groups, commercial businesses, sports clubs, families as well as groups with specific additional needs. Groups undertake residential stays, weekend courses or just come for the day.
As part of Derbyshire County Council’s Sports, Outdoor and Residential Education Service we support communities in Derbyshire and beyond with the provision of activities, programmes and events designed to encourage and inspire young people and families to be the best they can be: safe, healthy, happy, learning and working.
The centre consists of a large 19th century manor house set in its own 26 acres of parkland. The site has a large range of sports and development facilities including a sports hall, astro-turf training area, high and low ropes course, indoor bouldering room, football and cricket pitches, arts and craft workshop, camping area, games rooms and lots more!
