Residential breaks for adults and families

All our residential holiday breaks are offered in basic but comfortable bedrooms each with its own ensuite shower room.

We have twelve bedrooms sleeping up to 39 people, many of which have stunning views and some have period features.

As a centre for school trips many of our bedrooms are dormitory style, but you would be allocated your own private room on booking. We provide bed linen and towels.

School Visits

Please contact us for a plan of the bedrooms including numbers of beds per room to help with your planning. Our Maximum numbers for residential school visits are 34 children with 5 accompanying teaching staff. 

Children should bring their own pillow, sleeping bag, bed linen and towels. Please see our suggested How Hill kit list for more info.

Please see below for further details of our bedrooms and facilities.
