The facilities at Woodrow can accommodate 113 guests and are available all year round to any youth, or charity group. A wide range of exciting instructor-led activities are available to groups of all abilities, with the aim of developing confidence and resilience, building relationships and promoting healthy lifestyles, all whilst having fun.

Bespoke activity programmes are created for each group. So whether you're looking for a full activity programme, partial programme, or want to do your own thing entirely, we can accommodate your wishes. You can make use of the breakout spaces to run your own youth leadership, sports or performing arts programmes etc..

Woodrow offers accommodation on a fully catered basis. We cater for all dietary requirements and our chefs are happy to discuss individual needs with you. We can also accept self-catering bookings on an exclusive house basis.

Bedrooms vary in size (containing 2-5 bunk beds), and group leaders stay in single or twin rooms interspersed amongst the young people’s rooms. Spread over three floors and split into four areas, each group will have their own space.
