The Animals

The animals are a very popular feature of the Centre. We have lots of rare-breed chickens, guinea fowl, guinea pigs, rabbits, fantail doves and two dogs. Visiting groups become involved with the animals in many ways.

Sports Hall

Our sports hall is in the building adjacent to the bike storage area. We have play equipment for five-a-side-football and short tennis and will hopefully have more equipment later on this year. There are two toilets and washbasins in this play area.

Outdoor Play Area

There are rope swings and play structures outside including slides, swings, a non-working farm tractor and trampolines for everyone to use. We have an area of grass for playing five a side football. There are designated areas for lighting campfires under supervision.

Bikes & BMX

We have a number of bikes and BMX bikes available for groups to use within our grounds, including woodland paths. We also have a small BMX track! We charge £25 per group for the use of the bikes and the games room for a weekend and £50 for a week. Cycle helmets are provided.

Wildlife & Exploring

Wildlife in the area includes foxes, deer, badgers, squirrels, bats, hedgehogs, barn owls, kestrels, buzzards and for the keen ornithologists the centre has field binoculars which groups are welcome to use. There are cameras in the woodland linked to monitors in the games room and every year in the spring you can watch birds nesting and chicks hatching.

Bazley Games Room

This is a large room with a table tennis table, bar football table and pool table. We also have art materials and other games in this area of the unit. The games room has a separate toilet.

Castree Play Room
