Barnstondale Centre


The Natural Setting for Personal Development

Description

Barnstondale provides residential stays and / or a full range of day activities to groups of young people.

Groups of all ages can take part in climbing, abseiling, kayaking and forest skills. An excellent place for young people to develop team skills, improve their motivation and self-esteem.

We are pleased to work with groups to develop a programme to meet their specific needs.

Most of our accommodation is in fabulous log cabins with en-suite shower rooms. Every group has their own meeting room and is able to take advantage of the 15 acres of woodland, the muga pitch and sports hall.

We also have an outstanding cabin designed specifically for people with multiple disabilities making us truly inclusive.

Close to Liverpool, Chester and North Wales there is a wide range of places to visit from Chester Zoo to the Beatles Story and the Snowdonia Mountain Railway. Not to mention extensive shopping at Cheshire Oaks and Liverpool One.

Well organised, especially in the current climate (July 2021 - Primary School)




(June 2021 - Primary School)




Barnstondale had pleasant staff and we were well looked after. The instructors worked well with the children and were encouraging. The site has definitely improved since our last visit, and is secure. The organisation of parental drop off and pick ups was assisted by their staff and worked smoothly. The main reason it's 4/5 not 5/5 is that teh timetable we had been sent (with less than 36 hours to go) was changed while we were there , which then affected the places we'd been given on the site to use at designated times, which meant we then were left organising our time and location with the other schools present. (June 2021 - Primary School)




Very well organised - Covid secure. Activities were well planned and explained for the children (June 2021 - Primary School)




(June 2021 - Primary School)




Great opportunity for the children in caring surroundings. (November 2019 - Primary School)




(October 2019 - Primary School)




All staff interacted very well with staff and pupils. Centre was clean and suited for purpose. Resources were all appropriate to the tasks and accessible to pupils. Support was provided was excellent. (October 2019 - Primary School)




The centre staff are always welcoming and helpful. The facilities are perfect for the intentions of our visit. As Barnstondale own the grounds behind the centre, it would be great if they could extend their boundary fence to include the woods, field etc as we always use these but there is always the potential for members of the public / dogs to using the area too. As we plan to take younger children in the future, it would be peace of mind to know these areas are more secure. (June 2019 - Primary School)

Clean facilities, good outdoor access to local woods. The kitchen staff were very friendly and the food was tasty. Sleeping accommodation was very comfortable for the children. However, there could be improvements made to update the staff room. (April 2018 - Primary School)
