This project will give the building a new lease of life and the amount of care and attention it duly deserves.

Making the dream a reality

The building will be in traditional bunkhouse style, but with a dash of panache: open plan, with 2 log burners, 2 roof skylights, simple stylish galley kitchen with utilities for self-catering, group dining areas, open staircase and sufficient room for 18 people with 2 of those places being separate staff bunks. The building will have disabled access and facilities. There is to be 2 toilets and 2 showers. Sleeping arrangements are a blend of sleeping platforms, with bedside light, phone charging point and personal shelf, areas are to be kept open plan to enable sleeping areas to be camp-cot utilized and adjustable for the needs and gender breakdown in the group.

The proposal


Because alternative curriculums add value to mainstream educational goals. Any breaks from work re-energise and invigorate those taking part. Some organisations and or leaders may use this opportunity to recognize and reward innovation and achievement, whatever the reasons be assured you are making a bold and wise decision.


The bunkhouse is located on Walders Lane in Bolsterstone S36 3ZB. The Village has a quaint, comfortable pub which serves fine local ales and a selection of home cooked food. Locally there is a new retail development (Fox Valley) within 10 minutes drive, where there are a large assortment of shops, cafes and restaurants. Within 15 minutes of the venue there are opportunities for fishing, cycling, bouldering, climbing, abseiling, weaselling, walking and plain old relaxing!
