Our Ethos
Residential Outdoor Pursuits

In the UK, Manor Adventure uses Outdoor Pursuits as a catalyst to develop each and every child. In France, Manor Adventure produces superb residential experiences to develop and nurture children while staying in a real 18th Century Château.

We put Children and Education First. A family company since 1991, Manor Adventure is the largest independent company in the school residential sector in the UK handling around 100,000 pupils a year. All profits are re-invested every year! So our centres continue to improve and get better every year.

In the UK we offer outdoor pursuits in the evenings - so offering much better value than the majority of our competitors!
