Robinwood has three Activity Centres; two of which (Dobroyd Castle and The Old School) are located in the south Pennines market town of Todmorden, benefitting  from excellent transport links.  Our third centre, Barhaugh Hall, is situated on the Cumbria/Northumbria border in an designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  More information on each centre is detailed below.

Barhaugh Hall is set in over 9 acres of land and lies on the Cumbria / Northumbria border. For those wishing to have a wonderful experience in a really beautiful part of the countryside, Barhaugh Hall will certainly not disappoint. The views over the valley are breathtaking whatever the weather and the wildlife living in the area such as deer and the famous red squirrel are a joy to see and can sometimes be spotted during the Moorland Challenge walk into the centre or on our beautiful stream walk down the Barhaugh Burn.123

The Old School Centre is where it all started 20 years ago, running courses for no more than 25 children. Set in the South Pennines town of Todmorden, with brilliant transport links, fascinating local history and amazing natural resources. One of the highlights of a visit to The Old School is a trip up to Orchan Rocks; a pile of natural boulders that is perfect for children to challenge themselves by seeing which of the small holes they can wriggle through. Also up on the moors a short walk from the activity centre we have a streamwalk, incorporating a trip down a zip wire which runs over a small waterfall.

"Robinwood provide three days of amazing adventure for our children. The Old School is a small enough environment for our children to feel both independent and safe. Your staff support our approach to behaviour management and encourage children in a similar way to us. This is the first year that ALL of our children have completed ALL of your activities with only a few nerves along the way - we were so proud of all of them!"
