Schools & Youth Groups

Parson House OPC has been accommodating schools for over 44 years, from age 7 years upwards.

We give exclusive use to each school that visits Parson House, a location surrounded by history, geology, activity sites on the door cuts down travelling time and more activity time, the tranquillity of Burbage moor in the heart of the Peak District National Park.

An exemplary health and safety record, qualified and first class instructors that are dedicated to the outdoors and young people, all staff are crb checked prior to working with us and have attended and passed a ‘Safe Guarding Children’ course.

All bedrooms are roomy and have their own showers, toilets & washbasins next door/en-suite. A large games room offers table tennis, table football and room to ‘chill out’. We have a separate lounge for those wanting to watch tv or have some quiet time out, not forgetting the very large sports hall.

Drying rooms are within the accommodation, and 24 hr security cameras protect the children. The centre manager & chief instructor live on site for 24 hr assistance.

Two activities per day and one in the evening keeps young people happy and busy right through the day.

From the minute you book in with us, you will be looked after to a very high standard by the centre manager – Debbie. A programme is designed around your groups/schools requirements, and a pre-trip visit is always encouraged. All paperwork is sent out in time for your visit and required to be returned to us 2 weeks prior to your course; consent forms, room forms, dietary requirements etc. Ensuring your stay and arrival is a smooth memorable transition and you come back.

Parson House facilities are excellent the food is great staff are the best and very friendly all the activities are very good and really challening for the children the school always have a good time.

What an excellent time we had at Parson House last summer! Our Year 4 children loved the activities, which the instructors made sure were fun and exciting. We will definitely be returning.

During 2010, Crewe Climbing & Potholing Club have used Parson House Outdoor Pursuits Centre for 5 caving courses covering rope techniques used in caving, and ranging from basic procedures to more complex rescue systems. All these courses took place on the climbing wall - the facility being very suitable for the purpose as it offers plenty of space for demonstration and practice and can accommodate two courses, catering for up to six trainees, at any one time. CCPC found the domestic facilities (parking, loos etc) and the bolted apparatus on the climbing wall perfectly adequate and at a reasonable cost, and will certainly be using Parson House again in the future.

The instructors who lead the challenging activities are amazing with the children. Throughout every activity that we did they encouraged, supported and enjoyed being with the children.
