Woodrow High House, Buckinghamshire, sleeps 110 in 23 bedrooms.

Our 17th century manor house was once the home to Oliver Cromwell and his family. Today in our 24 acre grounds we offer comfortable, cosy, catered accommodation for up to 110 people, and a range of adventurous activities from swimming to archery and low-ropes to fun team-building exercises, if required.

Our fully qualified instructors can work with young people of all abilities to develop confidence and responsibility, build relationships and promote a healthy life style or just to have fun.

The house has recently undergone a complete external refurbishment to restore it to its former glory. Inside we have three lounges which offer a relaxing space for you all to enjoy during your visit. Bedrooms are of various sizes with some single rooms available for group leaders. Small and large groups are welcome.

After a busy day you can all enjoy dining together, we provide three hot meals a day and can cater for all dietary requirements.

Our beautiful grounds provide an ideal setting for young people to get away from their busy lifestyles and enjoy the countryside, maybe even spot some local wildlife. A camp fire, with songs and stories, is the perfect way to round off the day.
