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 it is often possible to spot some of the varied wildlife living in the area such as deer, red squirrels and hares.
Once at the centre all activities are on site and have been adapted and developed over the years to provide a fun and challenging experience for everyone. The close proximity of every session means there is no time wasted and children are constantly kept busy and entertained on one of our many exciting sessions.
Accommodation at the centre is set in a magnificent 18th century building. The children get to share a dormitory with their friends whilst the teachers get their own en-suite rooms to relax in at night. The most unusual but wonderful room is placed at the top of the folly tower for those teachers wishing for a fairytale stay.
We have fantastic indoor provision for three challenging high activities; an impressive climbing wall, crate challenge with emphasis on teamwork and trapeze with platform options to leap from two different levels. Indoor provision means that these high activities can continue whatever the weather, but we will also be retaining our outdoor trapeze in the trees in the grounds at Barhaugh Hall as an option in good weather.
There are further indoor areas in the grounds for the Dungeon and Piranha Pool; wonderful themed problem solving areas developed by our staff team.The indoor provision will probably be most important for the many schools who attend Barhaugh Hall from November through to March each year, but there remains plenty of opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities in the beautiful setting of the grounds surrounding the activity centre.
Children visiting the centre will not only get to experience new and exciting challenges but will have the opportunity to grow in confidence and discover new skills and abilities whilst being lead and guided all the way by our fun and highly motivated staff team.
