Prepare for stunning views

Rookesbury House is a stunning former stately home situated at the top of a hill amidst a 2000 acre private estate. With its grand entrance through the gate keeper’s lodge and the drive sweeps through fields of arable crops to the house, you can be sure of a secure and calming setting at this former prestigious boarding school.

The house is a grade II listed mansion with 500 acres of forestry and lakes and views across the Meon Valley Countryside. In addition to the fantastic surroundings, Rookesbury boasts a range of brilliant facilities, including:

  • Lake
  • Indoor Sports Hall
  • Sports Courts
  • Outdoor Pool

Party Leaders and children primarily stay on the first floor with students in multi-bedded rooms sleeping six to twelve and adults accommodated in twin rooms with a handful of single rooms available. Shared bathroom facilities are located close to the bedrooms.

This centre offers two to four night midweek durations, perfect for your residential trip.

A taste of our activities...


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.

29 activities and 5 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!

Book a free preview visit

We welcome preview visits from Party Leaders, Governors, Educational Visits Coordinator’s and Local Authority Advisors. A visit can give you the opportunity to carry out risk assessments, inspect the facilities and get to know your way around the centre.

Please note that most visits will take between one and two hours. Preview visits must be pre-booked with head office; otherwise you will be refused entry to the site for security reasons.
