Youth residential centre in Lancashire
Ideal for youth groups in the North West of England, Winmarleigh is a residential adventure centre that has over 50 acres of gardens and woodland filled with adventure activities your group will love.

Winmarleigh is just an hour from Manchester and Liverpool and offers a fantastic rural retreat near the forest of Bowland.
There’s an on-site lake for watersports, a floodlit activity area and a football pitch for a kick-about in between activity sessions.
