Fun for All at Bewl Water Outdoor Centre This Easter

From the 29 March 2021, Bewl Water Outdoor Centre can open its doors and day activities to children, families, schools, and community groups once again.  With this in mind, we would like to share with you the opportunities coming up over the next few months.

In February 2021, our Bewl Water Outdoor Centre site was awarded “We’re Good To Go” status.  The “We’re Good To Go” mark signals that a tourism and hospitality business has adapted their operations in line with respective Government and public health guidance and has a COVID-19 risk assessment in place to aid staff training, social distancing and cleanliness.

This Easter holiday, The Education People's Outdoor Learning team has some exciting COVID-safe opportunities for children, adults and family support bubbles taking place at Bewl Water Outdoor Centre.

We have special sessions for children (suitable for those aged 10+) on archery and axe throwing, as well as family fun days (suitable for those aged 6+).  All our activities are COVID-safe and a great way to have fun with peace of mind, outdoors.

Our Activities Include


Re-live the exploits of Robin Hood and become an expert marksman! Archery is a classic activity for all the family. Our qualified and experienced instructors will guide you through the difference between the 'knock', the 'boss' and the 'quiver'.

Axe Throwing

The modern sport of axe throwing involves a competitor throwing an axe at a target, attempting to hit the bullseye as near as possible. Surrounded in beautiful woodland you can experience what it is like to feel like a warrior!

Family Fun

This Easter we are offering a selection of activities suitable for the whole family. Book a morning or afternoon session and it will include two activities of your family’s choice.

Select two Family Fun activities from:

  • Challenge and Low Ropes course (suitable for ages 6+)
  • Bushcraft (suitable for ages 6+)
  • Axe Throwing (suitable for ages 10+)
  • Archery (suitable for ages 10+)
  • Climbing (see below. Suitable for 6+)

Come and scale the heights of our new climbing wall, under expert tuition with one of our instructors. This activity is suitable for 6+.

Do share this poster with your parents/carers and staff before the end of term via ParentMail (or equivalent) and social media!  You can tag @TEPOutdoorLearning on Facebook to help people find details of our sessions easily.

In Other News

The Government has just released details regarding Educational Visits as part of their Roadmap out of Lockdown.  Here are some headlines:

  • Educational day visits can restart from 12 April* - Why not consider day activities with either Bewl Water Outdoor Centre and/or Horton Kirby Environmental Centre?

  • Domestic residential trips. In line with the Roadmap, the Government advises against domestic residential educational visits until at least step three, no earlier than 17 May. What will this mean for visits to one of our sites?
    • Existing bookings

      Should step 3 commence as planned, you may undertake domestic residential education visits, that are already booked, no earlier than 17 May.  Any domestic residential educational visits must be conducted in line with relevant coronavirus (COVID-19) secure guidance and regulations in place at that time.

    • New bookings

      Schools may begin planning for new domestic residential educational visits to take place. Should step three commence as planned, new visits will be possible from and no earlier than 17 May.

All our activity days and domestic residential educational visits will be conducted in line with relevant coronavirus (COVID-19) secure guidance and the regulations in place at that time.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss any of these events, school activity day visits or residential opportunities with one of our helpful staff members, please contact us via email or phone us on 03001 651 333.
