Unforgettable primary school send off
Aug 2020 • Friends
Like many Year 6 pupils, my daughter and her friends missed out on their eagerly anticipated residential trip last year when we went into lockdown, so in an effort to make up for some of their disappointment, I arranged an adventure day for the class when Walton Firs reopened over the summer. 

Due to ongoing restrictions, the girls were divided into four groups, two arriving in the morning to take part in various activities (including the gladiator climb, high ropes, leap of faith, bouldering & orienteering) and two in the afternoon, meeting in the middle for a (socially distanced) picnic lunch and a parents vs girls rounders match (another final year tradition they would otherwise have been cheated of).

Package prices were incredibly reasonable and staff were friendly and accommodating, while being mindful of observing proper precautions, going out of their way to make sure the girls had a fun and memorable day.

This was my second visit to the centre, an unexpected wilderness retreat which may be a little rough around the edges but where kids can get stuck into a range of awesome outdoor pursuits, challenging themselves to reach the heights of climbing walls or rope courses, or to make the terrifying ‘flying squirrel’-style leap of faith, which, once conquered, they’ll beg to do over and over again.

Without exception, the girls went away with wide grins on their faces, Adrenalin pumping, confidence buoyed and parents all pleasantly surprised by a fabulous facility they never knew existed.

A Great Adventure in Cobham
Aug 2020
I took my grandchildren to this amazing centre on one of their open days. An exciting place to stretch the body and mind in a beautiful setting, and also a perfect spot to have an adventure and let off steam once lockdown is over.

38 acres of park and woodland that's been there for all young people since the 1940's, The new ablution block is, as one would expect immaculate. A village of pod huts look great and so inviting I'd like to stay there myself!

There's high ropes, tunnels, crate stacking, assault course, archery and much more to challenge the imagination, and it's even available for corporate team building and away days.

A best kept secret that I'm sure not even all locals from Cobham are aware of,. even though it's been there, just off the A3 for nearly 80 yrs. I'm going to treat my two (10 and 12) to a delayed Birthday party once we're allowed out again.

I know this type of multi occupied accommodations are very basic, but it is no excuse for the revolting state of the huts/lodges.
I’d mentioned the dirtiness of the Brunswick Lodge in an earlier stay, and we were given the Pembroke Lodge for this stay after it has been given a ‘deep clean’ as supposedly requested by me!

Been going to this site for years with my scout group. Beautiful site with a great forest area. Both camping and cabins available with good cooking facilities. All rooms have heaters and cleaned well. Lots of adventurous activities available, Climbing, Crate Stacking, Caving, Archery, Shooting are just some. All really well run with enthusiastic staff, in particular the Site Manager Rob. Hope to continue to return for years to come.

School trip

Our school goes every year and the kids have an amazing outdoors experience whatever the weather (past 4 years it's been blazing sunshine). It's well run and a definite favourite in the school calendar.
