Thornbridge Outdoors is a secure site with a wide range of challenging activities and plenty of space to explore. We have the site all to ourselves throughout our stay. The scenery is breathtaking - step outside and you're in the heart of the Peak District with the Monsal trail running past the door. The centre is just north of the A6 near Bakewell and members can be collected from Grindleford train station if required.
Thornbridge Outdoors is an activity based outdoor education centre, set in the beautiful Peak District National Park. You'll stay in well-appointed dorms of six to eight beds with all bedding provided. Bathrooms and showers are nearby. Plenty of inside space to relax. If you are coming with a friend or in a group we will try to keep you together in the same dorm if we can.
