About Boreatton Park

For your next trip away, choose Boreatton Park activity adventure camp with its 250 acres of grounds crammed full of adventure activities for your Brownies or Guides to enjoy.

Set in the stunning Shropshire countryside, there’s plenty of woodland to explore where your group can try out orienteering or our survivor challenge. There are acres of open space for team games, lakes for watersports and indoor areas for sports, climbing and other activities.

Your unit will love singing the PGL songs as they walk to their next adventure activity session or swap stories around the campfire at the end of a busy day.

Boreatton Park offers a choice of accommodation to suit a range of requirements. We’ve got cosy wooden lodges, a large mansion house and our tented villages are a popular choice with many Brownies and Guide groups in the summer.

Extra healthy or extra food?
Whether your Brownies & Guides are passionate about healthy eating or just need that little extra bit of re-fuelling, we have a fantastic self-service salad bar that offers a great range of delicious salad choices. We also have tasty, homemade soup for them to try and plenty of fresh fruit that they can take with them to keep them going between activity sessions.

If after all that, they still would like a little more, just ask one of our friendly catering team and we’ll be happy to provide extra food.

Catering to your needs
There may be girls in your group that have special dietary needs or some that are just choosy about what they eat. Whatever the requirement, our team will be able to provide a variety of alternative options to suit the needs of your group.
