Barnstondale Centre

Barnstondale Centre offers affordable, residential and non-residential breaks to groups of young people from the Merseyside areas that are considered disadvantaged in some way i.e. Financially, physically or emotionally. They are set in the heart of the Wirral Peninsula in 15 acres of countryside that includes an ancient woodland dale, stream and pond.


“The group were very impressed by the facilities the centre has to offer. It is great to able to offer this standard of accommodation and services at such an affordable price. Thank you for your efforts and I hope we can work together again in the future.” Rachel Smith, Clubs for Young People

“Thank you so much for an excellent weekend. Many of the young people were speechless at the accommodation & food – not to mention the activities etc. The week end I know will have a tremendous effect on them in the future, thank you!” Sport and Recreation, Major Ann Tipping, Salvation Army


The Centre provides first class facilities and an environment which is far removed from everyday inner-city life. There is a structured routine and a varied activity base to assist group leaders in facilitating their self-devised programmes in order to work on improving self-esteem, widening horizons and increasing the motivation of our young communities. The Centre offers completely accessible facilities and excellent accommodation on a full board or self catering basis and can accommodate groups of varying size, up to 150 people via a mix of dormitories, log cabins and en suite rooms.

Facilities include classrooms, meeting rooms, art room, assembly hall, leaders lounges, tuck shop, stage venue, floodlit all weather pitch, outdoor football pitch, adventure playground, a variety of indoor/outdoor sporting facilities, games rooms and the opportunity to experience a wide range of morale building outdoor pursuits including archery, canoeing, orienteering, problem solving, abseiling and rock climbing, both on and off site. The activities offer a challenging and rewarding experience to all participants and are equally effective in building social skills as they are physical ones.

As an Adventure Activity Learning Association licence holder, all activities are professionally supervised by fully qualified staff and full risk assessments are available to view. In addition there is an exciting new abseiling tower which means they can provide outdoor climbing & abseiling experience without leaving the site. The tower is the tallest in Wirral and is professionally supervised to ensure absolute safety. This really is exhilarating and motivational fun at its most extreme and is proving immensely popular with children and leaders alike. Day usage and residential available.
