We work closely with schools and groups from Nottinghamshire and further a field to provide individually tailored days for young people and adults to experience quality outdoor learning experiences. Programmes aim to enrich the curriculum and help learners reach their potential through positive engagement with the education process, increasing confidence, group awareness, healthy activity and fun. The centre is also available for self-led groups throughout the year.

Perlethorpe is a child friendly, inspirational environment that provides memorable and lifelong learning experiences for young people each year.

It has 6 habitable spaces that can fit up to 12 children per space depending on size of child. The amazing thing about this Bunkhouse is that almost all the timber used has came from the Thoresby Estate, so the Carbon Footprint is very low, in addition to this it has a Living Sedum Roof adding to the Environmental aspect of the build.
