Fabulous place. Really enjoyed the heswall disabled camp here. My daughter has the best time ever. Such a fantastic facility that all young people should have the chance to visit

Love Barnstondale! The staff are great, food amazing and facilities for pupils really good. It's a great place to visit.

We took part in 4 day time activities: Archery, Orienteering, Team Building and Climbing/Abseiling. The instructors were a real laugh and built up a great rapport with the children very early on. I think we’ve found a hidden gem with this place! Our climbing practice has certainly paid off and the instructors couldn’t believe we were only in Year 4! Each group showed great teamwork helping each other cross a stream on a zip wire and even trusted each other in a blindfolded challenge. Orienteering was around the grounds so a really good way of helping us get to know our surroundings. Archery was a favourite with some children and we even picked up the correct terminology to impress you with at home!
