Prepare for a rare experience!
Cholderton Charlie’s Farm is a unique activity centre on the border of Wiltshire and Hampshire, and an absolute must for animal lovers.
Its Rare Breeds Farm and Education Centre makes it a fantastic place for young people to learn about endangered species and the environment.
Nestled in 28 acres of stunning countryside, Cholderton Charlie’s Farm has excellent facilities that encourage exploration and learning, including:
- Tractor and trailer rides (weather and season permitting)
- Adventure play area
- Indoor play barn
This adventure camp’s accommodation is an attraction in itself; the four-star refurbished youth hostel is located on the farm grounds, which means that teams and animals stay side by side.
The hands-on interaction with rare breeds such as the small Hebridean Eriskay pony (now even rarer than the giant panda), brand new on-site accommodation and array of exciting indoor and outdoor activities, really does make this centre one of a kind.
One dedicated instructor per group
That’s why we have a unique policy of one dedicated instructor per group for the duration of their stay, with an instructor to child ratio of no more than 1:12 (maximum activity group size is 12 children).
This allows instructors to get to know the strengths, weaknesses and personality of each child, helping kids fulfil their potential and get the most out of the camp. It also helps ensure children are properly supervised at all times and feel safe and supported.
40 activities and 4 courses available
Activities at this centre apply to a broad range of subject areas and leaning outcomes, promoting education, personal development and of course, fun!
