Motorsports at caythorpe court

If you love your excitement with added revs this is your kind of adventure!

What’s it all about?
Learn to ride a motorbike, develop your own go-kart strategy, or tackle our off-road track on a quad bike. You’ll learn basic skills, and improve over the week.

Driving vehicles you’re not normally able to!

Can I do other activities as well?
Yes – every day you’ll also enjoy half a day of activities from our brilliant multi activity programme, plus different entertainment every evening, so you can pack in loads of other new experiences too!

What can I drive?
Depending on your centre and age group, you’ll drive up to three different vehicles. Engine sizes vary from 50cc to 80cc, with speeds limited to suit the conditions.

All centres have quad bikes and motorbikes, with selected centres also having go-karts and a selection of ATVs (All Terrain Vehicles).

What do I learn?
You’ll learn balance, clutch control, and to start and stop safely. We operate time trials, rather than races, to help you monitor your progress. You can also design your own course, using equipment including obstacles, ramps, see-saws and limbo bars.

Do I need any specialist equipment?
We provide all specialist equipment, including goggles, helmets, overalls and other safety equipment.

A typical itinerary for this holiday

Sample day on Motorsports
Schedule Activity
Breakfast Off to the dining room with the rest of your group to fuel up for the day, you’ll need plenty of energy to keep you going. Breakfast includes cereals, toast, yogurts, porridge, and cooked breakfast – you choose!
Don’t forget to refill your drinks bottle before you head off to your first activity
Morning Activities Half day of Motorsports
Lunch Worked up an appetite? Great – it’s time to replenish your energy stores with the dining room. If you have energy to spare after lunch your Group Leader will always be ready for a quick kickabout with a ball or you could relax and chat with your new friends.
Afternoon Activities Climbing and Jacob's Ladder
Dinner Time to eat again – a different menu each day (and did we mention, often evening meals come with a hot pudding too – or you can stick with fruit if you prefer).
Evening Ents Talent shows, campfires, quizzes and much more – your evening entertainment programme gives you the chance to get together with everyone else in your age group and have some laughs.
Bedtime Bedtime. The younger ones go first whilst older groups have time to chill out and chat or watch a DVD. Then it’s lights out and time to sleep ready to do it all over again tomorrow!

Please note this is a sample itinerary for illustrative purposes only. Itineraries will be planned by the centre shortly before your arrival.


The 2–6 bedded en-suite lodges were built in 2009 and added to in 2010. We also have refurbished 4–8 bedded rooms in modern blocks – all of which are in the grounds of the main house. Caythorpe also has a modern tented village. Sited on a hard base with proper beds, each tent sleeps up to five and has easy access to nearby modern shower and toilet blocks.
