If you would like to book a Robinwood course please telephone us to check if the dates you are interested in are available and we can then reserve a place for you, with no obligation.

Your initial booking is made for the number of activity groups that you need

All parties attending Robinwood are split into ‘activity groups’. Activity groups vary in size between 10 and 13 children, with typically an average of around 11 children in each activity group. When you make a booking, you don’t need to confirm the exact number of children that will be attending as we realise this is difficult to do a long way in advance. We just ask you to confirm the number of activity groups you would like to book for, which in turn fixes the minimum charge for your party and the maximum number of children in your party as follows:
Number of activity groups booked
Minimum number of children
Maximum number of children
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100
13 26 39 52 65 78 91 104 117 130
We are happy for schools to have fewer children in a group on occasions, as long as payment for a minimum of 10 is made. Robinwood costs per activity group remain very similar however many children there are in the group but, with fewer children in the group, children are likely to get more goes and more individual attention.

We can accommodate groups of up to 285 children. Please contact us if you would like to discuss a larger group booking.

Reserving dates with a provisional booking

Course dates can be saved provisionally for your party, with no obligation, for up to three weeks whilst you contact parents and make any other necessary arrangements. At the end of this three week period we need to receive, a signed booking form from you, together with an initial deposit payment of £200 per activity group (around £20 per child) in order to confirm your booking. As soon as we have your booking form and initial deposit payment, your booking is secure. There are then two further payment dates:

  • A second deposit of £300 per activity group (around £30 per child) is due 8 weeks after the first deposit payment.
  • The completion payment for the whole course is due 6 weeks before the course

Flexibility in final numbers

Our system of booking for a fixed number of activity groups rather than a fixed number of children has proved popular with many schools. As long as you remain within the minimum and maximum limits stated, the actual numbers of children can vary right up until the date of the course and we will only charge for the number of children that actually attend.

Adult places free of charge

We recommend that there is always at least one accompanying adult attending for each activity group booked, but having more adults can sometimes be helpful, particularly if there are children with additional needs in your party. We are happy to accommodate some additional adults attending free charge, up to a maximum of 2 adults per activity group booked. We provide one bedroom for each activity group booked, so if more than 1 adult per group is attending, some adults will generally need to share rooms.

Additional bedrooms for adults available to book

At each centre we have a limited number of additional bedrooms for adults that can be booked by schools at a charge of £60 per room per course. These rooms (which can also accommodate up to 2 adults) are offered on a first come, first served, basis for schools who are bringing additional adults and would like to have more than one room per activity group booked available to them. The charge made is per room per course, there is no variation dependent on usage or numbers of adult attending.

Commitment to minimum numbers

When you confirm a booking, you are making a firm commitment to pay for the minimum number of children, for the number of activity groups booked, which is 10 times the number of activity groups. A booking is confirmed when a deposit payment has been made and a signed booking form has been returned.
