  • Adventure Holidays at Marchants Hill

Marchants Hill is set in a beautiful location in Surrey

There are 45 acres of grounds packed with activities so everything is just a short walk away. In the grounds there are climbing and abseil towers, four zip wires, three giant swings, two low ropes courses, two challenge courses, three trapezes as well as a motorsports track and archery range. 

As well as recently constructed accommodation, dining room and sports hall, there are over 20 activities all situated on-site! It’s great for all ages and there’s a big range of holidays to choose from.


Our fantastic accommodation blocks sleep six in each room and all are en-suite. Younger age groups may be accommodated in our adjoining annexe, Bethany House, which has en-suite, 6–8 bedded rooms. It’s a couple of minutes walk away with its own dining room, shop and separate chill-out room away from our older guests.


Our fantastic sports and activity hall offers even more great activities – inside and out. For 13–16 year olds there’s a chill-out room with TV, CD player and pool table – a great place to relax with your friends.

It also has a recently built lake on-site for raft building and kayaking. If that’s not enough, adrenaline junkies can test their nerves (and stomach!) on the awesome rides at Thorpe Park.

Fuel for LIFE!
Fun may be important, but so is food, and we want to inspire children into a healthier lifestyle that includes a tasty, balanced diet. We work closely with leading catering organisations to ensure our food is the best it can be and our dining rooms are fun, active places where it’s good to refuel during a busy fun-packed day.

From fussy eaters to growing appetites!
No-one should leave our dining room hungry so we try to offer a range of different and nutritious hot food to suit all appetites.There is unlimited access to the salad bar and bread basket and children can help themselves to fruit. Our buffet style restaurant means that children can ‘mix and match’ the items they love most. Our Group leaders are on hand to help and will look out for anyone who can’t find anything on the menu that they enjoy.

If necessary our catering teams will be more than happy to prepare something special.

Allergies, intolerances and other dietary requirements
A vegetarian alternative can always be provided on all our holidays, and we can accommodate most special diets required on medical or religious grounds, just let us know when you book.

Keeping hydrated
Water, squash, tea and coffee are available with all meals and children are encouraged to refill their water bottles for regular use throughout the day. There are also water fountains available around the centre.
