About Boreatton Park

Located in the heart of the Shropshire countryside, the impressive 250 acres at our Boreatton Park activity centre make it a popular choice with secondary school groups.

There’s everything you need to keep your students busy, with plenty of adventure activities on land and water, a purpose-built sports hall, all the study space you need and even an indoor swimming pool, what more could you want?

Teacher’s often tell us that the huge grounds at Boreatton Park mean that they don’t notice the other groups on centre!

There are plenty of accommodation options too. Our wooden lodges are a popular choice for many secondary school groups but the tented villages are lots of fun in the summer. There’s also our impressive mansion house, which has plenty of room for everyone.
