This lovely location is perfect for a break away with friends and family. Set in 180 acres of beautiful parkland overlooking the River Ribble and its own 17th century manor house, Waddow Hall Estate in Lancashire provides the ideal choice for gatherings where the emphasis is on something a little bit different. Many outdoor activities are offered on site to excite and challenge all group types along with flexible accommodation types and facilities. Easy access to both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District is a bonus for walkers and cyclists who want to venture further afield. Nearby Clitheroe is well worth a visit, especially the castle and museum, or have a wander around its plethora of independent shops and cafes. Clitheroe has become the food capital of Lancashire in recent years.

Whether it's canoeing, climbing, archery or even grass sledging, just a small sample, experienced staff will create bespoke challenges to excite everyone in the group. Personal development is pretty important but so is maximum fun and enjoyment.
