About Boreatton Park

Book your primary school trip at our Boreatton Park adventure centre in the beautiful Shropshire countryside.

Your pupils will love the 250 acres of space to run around in.

With lakes for watersports, a sports hall, indoor swimming pool as well as classroom space and all the adventure activities you’d expect, Boreatton Park is a popular choice with primary school groups from all over the UK.

Nothing beats a scenic canoe trip along the river Perry as you watch the high flyers on the giant swing overhead. There’s also a great view from the zip wire as you soar through the trees and out over the rafting lake.

Choose to stay in our cosy wooden lodges, tented villages in the summer or our huge mansion house with lots of space for your pupils to enjoy.

Food

Enjoyable mealtimes with nutritious and tasty food
Our meals are freshly cooked, balanced and will give your pupils plenty of energy to keep them going throughout the day.

Our little extras
In addition to our fantastic range of hot meals, (which are freshly prepared and include vegetarian options), we offer tasty, healthy, homemade soup every day. There’s also a wide variety of fresh fruit and salad options at our salad bar – it’s great when they want to try something new!

Fussy Eaters?
We know some of your pupils may be particular about what they eat. Don’t worry though, whether it’s because of special dietary needs or simply someone who’s really particular, we will always find something to suit any special requests you may have. And if they’re still hungry, we can offer alternatives and extra food.

Looking after you
Good meals in an efficient and clean environment is always a given with us, but we like to do much more. We go all-out to create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere in pleasant, attractive surroundings to help you to enjoy dining with us.
