I was here for overnight accommodation during a conference. It was much as one might expect from an outdoor education establishment, lots of teenagers around (all well behaved) with a basic adult accommodation block away from the main building. The room was clean but no en-suite and I had to tramp upstairs for the toilet and shower. The lack of... More

Spent a week here with my son & parents during the summer holidays. Absolutely amazing It was like being back at school myself. We did shelter building, looking at creatures habitats, what lurks beneath & lots more. My son loved it, had lots of fun & made many new friends. Food was limited in choice but all very edible. The... More

What a great thing to do on a wet Sunday afternoon, really lifted our spirits. The helpers were friendly and informative (the lady who showed us the moths was so enthusiastic, I never thought I would find moths so interesting!). I never did pond dipping at school and found looking at water bugs under the microscope fascinating ( glad we... More

We saw lots of moths which had been caught locally. Some were very impressive. We inspected them under microscopes. We did some pond dipping and took our bugs for inspection under the microscopes. We saw bees and a honeycomb and spoke to experts on butterflies, birds and bees. We saw mammals and drank nettle tea and made wrist braids from... More

The sign says welcome to all. A promising start as we were greeted by a historical plaque. detailing how the property used to shelter French aristocrats during the revolution. Sadly this attitude seems to have fallen by the wayside of late. We gingerly perched on some stumps to eat sandwiches, when we were approached by a haughty woman and told... More

In order to ensure the safety of these children and families the site is not usually open to the public. We do offer a range of community events and open days such as our Wildlife Festival last year and this summer we will be... More

Superb wildlife festival in the most amazing setting. The house is incredible but the grounds even more so. Lovely staff. Hope it's repeated next summer.

I visited this centre with my 10 year old daughter for a "Family Open Day" on Saturday 28th January 2011. Juniper Hall is set in a breathtaking countryside location and the building itself is very old and beautiful. It is a bit in need of a cash injection inside, and a bit creaky in places, but that simply adds to... More
