We understand that many of our groups work to a tight budget when making plans for a residential, so we are able to offer a number of self guided activities for you to run yourselves. These sessions are great fun and can often be added on the day, or planned well in advance.
Please Note: We do regularly change our routes for activities such as orienteering, so please make sure you get a copy of the latest maps when you arrive.
Hire a bike and hit the tracks or go out and explore the New Forest. We have Red and Blue trails for beginners and our Pump and Gravity and North Shore Park elements for the more advanced rider.
