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.

Just a quick email to say thanks you so much for making Max's stay at Parson house so memorable the past two years. He loved every moment of it and I believe these memories will always stay with him. He enjoyed every activity (even capsizing in his canoe!), the company, the team work, the fun, the staff and of course the food!!

Max came home with amazing tales of his adventures and how he was proud, not only of his own achievements, but also those of his friends. Children he never thought would abseil off bridges nor dare to get into a canoe suddenly rose in confidence and relished the chance to explore their bravery and push their boundaries! His tales were heart warming.

Thank you to all your staff for giving the children such a wonderful opportunity and experience.

I hope when his little brother gets to year 5/6 that south hykeham primary school are still booking with you!! 😉
