Short Distances

Short distance
The site is across 25 acres but activities are within smaller set areas within this and if distance was a problem, activities could be chosen based on their proximity to one another and we also have pedal buggies if someone wanted to use these to access different areas of the site.

Access To Toilets

Access To Toilets
There are multiple toilet facilities across the site including in the sports hall near to some of the outdoor activities, there is also a Changing Places facility on-site. Individuals are advised to talk through any concerns with an instructor before activities commence, such as where the nearest toilets are - all of our instructors are highly experienced in supporting people with additional needs

Assistance Dogs

Assistance Dogs
There are plenty of grassed areas for toileting to be picked up and we do only allow assistance dogs on-site, a water bowl can be arranged if we are advised when booking that this is required.

Essential Companions

Essential Companions
For programmes like our Activ-Ability days and residential stays, a carer or personal assistant can come along for the cost of food and accommodation. Our instructors are unable to support individuals with personal care or administering medication and this would need to be arranged with a carer/personal assistant if required.
