Blackwell Adventure is based at Blackwell Court and Pikes Pool and has a wonderful Scouting heritage. We support over 25,000 people each year to enjoy the great outdoors in a safe and fun environment. Here's some more information on Blackwell Adventure and the people involved.
There is no better feeling than accomplishing something you thought was impossible and our activities help to make people feel proud! From taking that leap off the Fan Descender to finally hitting the gold on the Archery target, there is so much fun to be had along side your team mates.
With two beautiful campsites to choose from, at Blackwell Court and Pikes Pool there is a pitch to suit whatever size or type of camp you require. From the rustic woodland at Pikes to large open fields at Blackwell, there is a space to suit you. Hot showers and toilets are included.
If you prefer the great indoors then we have a number of accommodation options to suit your group size and budget. We have a Tented Village, Wooden Pods, a traditional bunk house called the Stable Block and our elegant Victorian Manor House.
Children love a souvenir so there is something for everyone in our onsite shop. We also have an Indoor Sports Hall, a large room called the Group Room and the Pikes Pool Centre. These are great options to hire for either an indoor space, party or wet weather back up plan!
Here you will find lots of helpful information for your visit such as Kit Lists, bed lists, site maps and risk assessments. We will send information when you make your booking but if you need a quick go-to place to find any info that is all easy to download and print, please click here.
We offer a Gold DofE residential package for young people who can join and take part in activities, some site service work and will meet new friends. The package is ideal for those wanting to complete this part of their award in a fun, safe and stunning outdoor environment.
We annually host events here such as family fun days and cycling events. These give us the opportunity to open up our centre to lots of people who can come along to see what we have to offer. Our events are always evolving so look out for our latest ideas!
We love to keep in touch with everyone and let people know what we are up to, plus keep you up to date with the latest goings on at Blackwell Adventure. On our blog section you can see what's been happening here and any future plans we may have coming soon.
