At the heart of our small residential activity centre is the majestic Georgian Rectory retaining some of the original features.

We offer 60 bed accommodation across a variety of rooms including single and twin rooms for leaders and a variety of size dormitories for our young visitors.


Attic rooms, the original grand staircase, large imposing fireplaces and a labyrinth room layout all adds excitement and a sense of history to the Horstead residential experience.

The back lounge overlooks the garden and has a selection board games and activities. It can also be used for quiz nights, talent shows, story telling and more.

Back Lounge

The front lounge can be used as a quiet space or provide the opportunity to spread out for students to write reflection diaries of their experience at Horstead.
