School Activity Holiday to Hawkhirst

Hawkhirst activity centre is situated approximately 50 miles north west of Newcastle. A 70-acre site, located within 200 square miles of the Kielder Forest, it is surrounded on three sides by the vast expanse of Kielder Water. This makes the centre the perfect location for both water sports and land based adventurous activities.

Destination Guide

Rich in history, Hawkhirst extends across 70 acres of mainly coniferous forest in the north-east of England. It’s a great short break destination for groups in the north-east of England or for schools from further afield looking to combine an exciting trip with activities on and off the water.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Superb water sports activities
  • Dragon boating, kayaking and longboats
  • Great land activities too
  • New hostel accommodation and lodges
  • Hadrians Hall World Heritage site

Activities

We will work with you to build a programme to suit your requirements. With a range of supervised activities from archery to orienteering, each can provide a very different learning outcome. A typical day contains five activity sessions each lasting approx 90 minutes, keeping you and the group entertained throughout the day and well into the evening. Try the Bell Boats activity here – a cross between dragon boating and canoeing with up to 12 people in each boat. A great way to get moving on the water and develop teamwork, co-ordination and leadership.

Excursions

Consider a trip to Kielder Castle, the former hunting lodge of the Duke of Northumberland, or Hadrian’s Wall, the World Heritage Site famously built by the Romans.

Accommodation

  • Hawkhirst has a range of accommodation units. The main hostel sleeps up to 40 persons, while the new hostel opened in 2008, sleeps up to 36 in en-suite rooms. All your meals are included, although for groups wishing to self-cater, the smaller Jubilee lodge has a fully equipped kitchen should you prefer.

What They Say

As opposed to simply being sold a tour package, we felt the service Absolute School Travel offered went above and beyond our expectations from a travel company, than you for that.
