About Newby Wiske Hall

Providing adventure activity programmes and retreat facilities for faith groups from South Yorkshire and the North East of England, Newby Wiske Hall is just 15 minutes from the A1(M) near Northallerton, North Yorkshire.

The centre will open in spring 2018 and work will start in the coming months to convert the existing site into a residential PGL adventure centre. There will be a sports hall, adventure activity bases and plenty of indoor meeting spaces for groups to use for their own sessions. Accommodation will be en suite throughout, including single en suite rooms for group leaders.

For interested parties we will be arranging inspection visits to Newby Wiske Hall in the near future, so please check our website for dates.

Booking is now open and we expect demand to be high, so to make a no-obligation provisional booking for your faith group for next year, please contact us for prices and availability.

A pleasant dining experience
We’ll help nurture your faith group from the inside out at mealtimes. We have a variety of balanced, nutritious options available.

Nourishment and choice
We know how important it is to equip your faith group for the rewarding challenges they face throughout the day, that’s why we do more at mealtimes. In addition to our freshly prepared hot meals, our salad bar will give them a great variety of healthy options, which they can help themselves to. There is always fresh fruit available for them to take away with them and our nutritious, homemade soup will warm them up, even on the coldest of days!

Looking after everyone
We want to support each individual in your group during your time away with us and that includes caring about what they eat. They may have special diets or particular allergies – whatever their needs, we will cater accordingly.

Happy dining with PGL
Leave all the hard work to us so you and your group can relax and enjoy your mealtimes together. It’s important to take time out during an action-packed day. We’ll always provide a warm welcome at mealtimes and we work hard to create a clean, pleasant dining environment that your group will feel at home in.
