Our residential accommodation

Our residential accommodation is arranged in 2 villages, each with log cabin sleeping accommodation and a dining cabin. All accommodation is heated and insulated for year-round use.

Smaller residential groups have exclusive use of their village and larger groups can be accommodated by making use of both villages. Unlike many centres, we never mix groups of clients in a village.

Camping groups are welcome on our large field and may use either our tents or their own.

We can also arrange catering that offers high-quality, nutritious and balanced meals at a very reasonable cost while contributing to the learning opportunities for the students. Ask us for more details.
