Norfolk Lakes Adventure Centre has become our water sports and outdoor pursuits flag ship on the eastern side of the UK. Norfolk Lakes is located on the edge of the village of Lyng, situated on the River Wensum only 11 miles north west of Norwich.
The facilities on offer to schools are absolutely superb with accommodation units on either side of a very large indoor facility which offers a range of indoor activities, common rooms for teachers and pupils, dining facilities and a teachers bar.
Like all our centres we expect this centre to sell out within a few years of opening so we strongly recommend schools to book as soon as possible to reserve their preferred dates.
At our residential activity centre in Norfolk, we provide school groups with an introduction to outdoor pursuits, with each session lasting one and a half hours. For more information about our residential activity courses, please click the buttons below.
The accommodation on offer to schools is of the highest standard having been constructed in 2007. We have accommodation available for 300 guests. Teachers are accommodated in two bedded apartments.

I want to say how FANTASTIC the whole set up was - we were naturally anxious before we came, but Manor Adventure didn't disappoint - they had thought of EVERYTHING and we felt so well cared for. Please pass on my thanks to the whole team. Again, thank you so much for being so accommodating, understanding and organised - it made the trip so lovely and fantastic memories have been created.
Could I just take this opportunity Caroline to thank you and your staff for everything you have done to assist us in making this trip happen. All of the children (and staff!) had the most amazing weekend. The accommodation, food, weather and staff were all excellent and our children have made the most amazing memories as well as built up their resilience and independence. It was so nice to do something normal again and we are truly grateful for all of your patience and support in making it happen.
Big thank you to all the instructors for giving the children such a great week. They all achieved things they never thought they could do - it was a great experience for them. All the instructors had just the right manner with the children - fun, enthusiasm but 'in charge' - super!

We have to make this an annual trip! Groups very well run and staff were on time for everything, very well trained and friendly ensuring the whole trip ran smoothly.
The recent outward bounds trip was a resounding success. Taking the pupils out of the environment in which we normally see them in, and challenging them both physically and socially, brought out positive qualities in each of their characters that was fantastically rewarding to see.
Fantastic team building experience where pupils have the opportunity to excel and increase their confidence and independency.
