Book School Trips, Hen Weekends and Family Activity Holidays

The Manor House Activity & Development Centre provides amazing Activity Holidays and Courses for everyone – if you are looking for some sort of Activity Break, I am sure you will find it with us!

The Manor House is the ideal venue for groups of all ages and sizes looking to experience a variety of exciting adventurous activities in a comfortable homely setting.

We offer exceptional, personal service quality activity sessions and lessons in the fabulous Cornish countryside and coastline.

Amongst activity centres we strive to be something different! Our 18th Century Manor House has been tastefully restored and offers a ‘Country Home’ style accommodation including a lovely warm and friendly lounge, with a log fire in the winter months and a luxury Spa Pool Jacuzzi for use of our adult guests in the private garden.

One of the main reasons our clients return to us year after year, apart from the fabulous courses we run, is that often they do not have to share the Manor House with anyone else - sole occupancy is free to groups above a certain size! Call us to check if your group qualifies…

Stand Up Paddleboarding Sessions and Lessons

We have very good boards and paddles that are excellent for learning and a very strong experienced Team of Paddleboard Instructors. We can take you out on flat water initially to teach you the basics of balance, paddle strokes and control. We can then progress on to Surf SUP when you are ready - catching and riding waves, the techniques and how to get the most out of your Stand Up Paddle Board.

School Groups

We offer Activity Holidays and Field Study Courses for school groups. Multi-Activity Courses are offered to include many outdoor activities ‘From Dawn ‘til Dusk’. Activities may include water sports as well as land based pastimes, check the activities list on the schools page for more information.

Field Study Courses are also offered and we provide support necessary for groups to fulfil their study requirements or full board accommodation is provided for groups wishing to organise their own studies. Take a look at the Schools Page for full details of the schools trips we offer.

Outdoor Instructor Training

As the backbone to our courses and holidays are our TEAM, who are very special individuals; highly qualified, very focussed and a lot of fun! However to ensure that we continue to have such a select, elite team, we also provide Outdoor Instructor Training. Our Outdoor Instructor Training Program runs during the winter and provide the grounding for a successful career in the outdoor industry. We have for a long time been known as a centre of excellence in the development of outdoor professionals and through this course we have formalised the training ensuring that many others have the chance to gain from our team’s expertise and experience.

Hen Activity Weekends

During the weekends, when the school groups are safely at home, we provide up market, civilised Hen Party Activity Weekends for groups of up to 32 Ladies! Our Hens choose a program of activities which can include Surfing or other activities or our pampering afternoons of massage, reflexology and relaxation, along with use of the Spa Pool and a tasty Cornish Cream Tea! See the Hens page for more information!

Family Activity Holidays

Groups of families take over the whole Manor House for a truly tailored and exclusive family break. During the organised holidays, outdoor activities are included on a daily basis, still providing plenty of family time too. Family members can enjoy different activities and you can rest assured that the children are in safe hands perhaps at the Adventure Park, whilst Mum & Dad enjoy a Sea kayaking expedition or some other activity they have always wanted to do!

If you would like to know more about any of the courses or holidays that we offer and you can’t find it on our website, please do not hesitate to call Lesley who will happily discuss your requirements.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Manor House for your ideal break!

Only in a #Kayak can you navigate into those tight spots to get an up close view of the nature and wildlife in Cornwall's most scenic spots!
After some Michelle Obama arms?? #Kayaking will definitely sort you out! It's great exercise & works all of those upper body muscles.
#Didyouknow the word '#Kayak' means 'hunter's boat'? Kayaks are almost silent which made them ideal for sneaking up on prey!
