the provision of a centre which
promotes excellence in the field of outdoor education
Welcome to the Hollowford website which we hope will provide you with all the information you need about our outdoor education centre.
The Hollowford Centre, which is open all year round, is set on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Castleton, Derbyshire in the heart of the Peak District National Park.
The Centre is owned by Lindley Educational Trust and using outdoor activities we aim to be a centre of excellence for the development of young people, whether they be from schools, youth groups, apprentices or voluntary organisations.
"The overall aim of our programs is to ensure that people, regardless of background, race, sex, religion, ethnic origin, disadvantage or disability, are provided with the tools and the confidence to reach their full potential throughout life."
With over 50 years experience of delivering outdoor education we are here to discuss your requirements and suggest an event to meet your specific needs and outcomes. Everything is custom designed and as a result you will not find any set packages or prices.
Whilst primarily a residential outdoor centre for young people, our facilities are suitable for corporate groups and other training events. Working closely with our corporate clients, we design and deliver Apprentice personal development programs, Graduate and Management team building events using the outdoors.
At Hollowford we put our clients first which means we aim to be as flexible as possible. With a range of both on-site and off-site activities, classrooms and conference facilities, we are able to meet the requirements of any size and type of group.
