A great place to relax after a fun active day.
The social hub of the centre. After a busy but fun day relax on the comfy sofas or enjoy a game of table tennis, table football, or pool. You can grab a snack at the vending machines or visit the tuck shop for a souvenir. The games room is the venue for our weekly disco and with a large screen and projector we can hold film nights too.
We have a TV lounge in the Farmhouse for those who can't miss their soaps!
Our sports hall is full of exciting activites that you can access with your instructor during the day including the climbing wall, trapeze and swing. During the evening you can come here to play games such as basketball, football, badminton, boccia and relay games.
Enjoy delicious home cooked food in the dining room. Start your day with a hot cooked breakfast including cereal, toast and hot drinks. Collect your packed lunch here and return in the evening for a hearty three course meal with choice of salad or soup to start, selection of mains including vegetarian options and tempting desserts. Hot drinks are available all day and there is a fridge to store your own snacks.
We have a small quiet room which can be used for reading or just a chill out space. There is a range of books and magazines to read including some braille and audio books.
Each morning our instructors will meet here with members of our visiting groups to plan the day's activities. This room can also be used by visiting staff or to put on film/TV nights, please ask on arrival to check availability. The room has audio visual equipment, flip charts etc.
