Sports & Leisure Groups


Over twenty years of hosting groups gives us an understanding of how best to meet your needs.

Your coach or cars are able to park just outside the door and the train station is two miles away on a main bus route or around £5 by taxi.

Secure storage facilities are available for special equipment (e.g. bikes, musical instruments).

Any children in the party can enjoy the space; safe from traffic and away from the general public.

Inside the main building you will find a Dining Room with seating for 100 as well as a Common Room with digital television that is ideal for group meetings, games evenings, or just as a shared lounge.This offers two large and flexible communal areas.

All bedrooms in the main building are part en suite, offering a hand basin and W.C.

The recently refurbished shower rooms on each floor can be allocated to Girls/Boys and provide further hand basins with 16 individual shower rooms.

21 bedrooms in the main building are twin bedded with purpose built bunks converting each room to a capacity of four, so a total occupancy of 84.

Every room can be locked and within each room there is a lockable wardrobe.

Additional bedrooms and washrooms are available in our annex building; this might provide the ideal location for any members of the group who intend to sample the nightlife of nearby York city centre.

When it comes to meals, most of our groups choose Full Board and enjoy the locally based menus created by Brian Mann, our resident chef. We are happy to provide packed lunches and to accommodate any dietary requirements or special requests.

Our themed "party nights" have proved a highlight of many visits, please ask for more details.
