Large catered youth residential venue sleeping 25 to 64 for adventure activity trips near Padstow

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Manor House, St Issey, Padstow, Cornwall, sleeps 25-64 in 9 bedrooms.

The Manor House offers an alternative from the usual large centre mayhem and provides quality courses with personal attention. We are one of the very few centres that can provide sole occupancy for smaller groups. Many of our independent prep schools return year on year for this very reason.

We believe that our centre cannot be beaten on safety, quality, individualised tailored programmes, instructor to student ratio and dedication from our hand picked, highly qualified team.

We are a professional outdoor centre offering a quality service to all our clients; we are an AALA licensed, LotC, Adventuremark and BCU Approved Centre - so excellence can be assured.

Schools courses at The Manor House are tailored to meet each group’s individual requirements. We offer multi-activity holidays, field study courses and single activity development courses where a chosen activity can be taught to develop skills and competencies and perhaps to gain qualifications.

Small groups ensure that the best personal development and team building opportunities exist for each student.

Activity or field study – courses can be combined to gain the best of both worlds!

Field study trips are also very popular which focus on any number of different aspects that Cornwall has to offer. Teacher resources are provided to supplement our courses.

Some schools also choose to use the Manor House as a field study Base organising their own study visits and activities.

All arrangements are made by us to ensure that the time you need to spend on planning your course can be kept to a minimum and all the associated costs are included in the cost of the trip.

Delicious Home Cooked meals are provided each day which cater for all special dietary requirements. Picnic lunches are supplied - select your own individual sandwich fillings each day. Dining in two dining rooms with seating for up to 64 Guests.
