Barnstondale Centre is a children’s charity, based in Wirral, serving the diverse communities of Merseyside and beyond.
The Centre provides a natural setting for personal development through sport and adventure, study and reflection. We offer a safe, supportive and stimulating environment for youngsters from all walks of life, including those with a range of disabilities.
We are passionate about transforming the lives of young people, inspiring them to grow in mind, body and spirit. Team leaders and our own trained instructors challenge and motivate participants through a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, building confidence and encouraging co-operation.
Groups can stay in high-quality, purpose-built accommodation surrounded by our extensive wooded grounds; providing exciting opportunities for education, fun and a wealth of memorable experiences.

Set in in 15 acres of countryside in the heart of the Wirral Peninsula, the Barnstondale site includes an ancient woodland dale, stream and pond for an authentic countryside experience while still being very easy to reach by car or public transport.

We offer facilities, routine and an activity base to assist group leaders in facilitating their own self-devised programmes in order to work on improving self-esteem, widening horizons and increasing the motivation of our young community. Barnstondale has everything you need to make your visit and programme a success.

The Centre offers completely accessible facilities and accommodation, full board or self catering, for up to 150 people. Our 3 large log cabins provide an atmospheric and unique accommodation experience while still not skimping on comforts with all rooms en-suite. Simpler dorm accommodation is also available.

Our facilities include: Classrooms, meeting rooms, art room, assembly hall, leaders lounges, tuck shop, conference room and stage venue, floodlit multi-use games area, outdoor football pitch, adventure playground, a variety of indoor/outdoor sporting facilities and games rooms.

The perfect complement to our facilities is, of course, our fantastic range of activities available. A world of adventure is only an email or a phone call away….
