Residential Visits

Colehayes House is perfectly suited to accommodating school, college and youth groups.

The house sleeps up to 70 people in the 20 bedrooms, all of which have wash basins, are centrally heated and have pleasant views of the estate. The rooms sleep between 2 and 6 people with separate staff bedrooms and bathrooms, the party leader usually gets the bridal suite with 4 poster bed and Jacuzzi bath! The small number of guests per room really helps students to get some rest after a hard day unlike some larger dormitory style accommodation. The sides of the house are easily divided into male and female accommodation with their own bathrooms…
There is a bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor for anyone with mobility issues.

On the ground floor there is a Oak panelled reception room, with open fire that has been used for indoor activities as well as end of stay discos, a large lounge with wood burner, comfy sofas, huge flat screen TV with sky and DVD player. The bar, next door, can also be used as an activity or meeting room. The kitchen, downstairs bathrooms, dinning room, boot room and another lecture room make up the rest of the ground floor. As a visiting group staying at Colehayes House you will have exclusive use of the whole building.


Good quality, nutritious home cooked food is prepared and served at Colehayes to provide the energy needed for days and evenings spent in the great outdoors. Toast, cereals, fruit and a full English breakfast are available in the mornings and the evening meal consists of starter, main course and desert. Meals are served plated in a restaurant style rather than pupils standing in line like a canteen, this style of service helps to make meal times an opportunity to meet, interact and plan or review the day. Specific dietary requirements can of course be catered for. Packed lunches are available for pupils to make before or after breakfast.
A self service toast and cereals breakfast and 2 course evening meal option is also available as is the option to go fully self catering.
