Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Thornbridge Outdoors, Bakewell, Derbyshire, Peak District, sleeps 72 in 16 bedrooms.

At Thornbridge Outdoors we pride ourselves on the quality of our outdoor education residentials for young people which are at the core of what we do and why we are here.

By utilising our excellent site, fantastic location and experienced staff we aim to get the most from any residential here at Thornbridge Outdoors.

Our instructors at Thornbridge Outdoors are experienced in not only providing fun experiences, but also in adapting and tailoring them to match the group's needs, the aims of the visit and variables such as the weather.

There is no set programme at Thornbridge Outdoors and we encourage and support visiting staff to take an active role in organising and running activities; consequently becoming central to the young people's experiences and therefore building upon these more strongly back at school/group base.

We provide a wide variety of activities both on-site in our 55 acre grounds and off-site, some accessible by bike and others by minibus. Please get in touch to discuss what activities would best meet your outcomes.

Our self contained accommodation buildings, the Farm House (sleeps 34) & the Lodge (sleeps 38), have their own fully equipped kitchen and dining/lounge rooms with an LCD TV & DVD player. Both buildings have their own garden and a large BBQ which makes eating outside a popular option. The bedrooms have a mixture of bunk-beds and single beds, accommodating between 2 & 8 people. Free WiFi access is available in both buildings. Different catering options are also available.

Our campsite has 9 teepees which sleep up to 5 in each, space for additional tents and comes with a dining room that seats up to 70, a fully equipped kitchen, toilets and showers.

We have a variety of meeting spaces and a campfire to use and reflect on the day’s activities, and also have a staff room with a hot drinks machine. There are several drying rooms on-site and a wellie wash area and bike wash area.
