Dearne Valley

Denaby Main, Conisbrough, South Yorkshire, DN12 4EA

Get active and breathe in the great outdoors at our adventure centre in the stunning surroundings of the former Earth Centre next to the Trans-Pennine Way and the River Don.

A unique blend of nature and adventurous activities with contemporary purpose built accommodation. Enjoy exhilarating activities such as climbing and zipwire in our state of the art activity park, build a raft on our purpose built watersports lake and explore the natural beauty of this 50 acre site by day and night.

Activity session times at Dearne Valley are slightly longer than at our other centres which means that although there may be slightly fewer activities, you can enjoy each activity for longer.

Two night weekends

Available on selected weekends, bank holidays and week days during school holidays with a convenient later start on Friday’s during term time. Our two night breaks are a chance to get away with the family to bond and try a range of exciting, fun activities including:

  • A full programme of 9 - 10 adventurous activities depending on whether you choose a weekend with the 3pm or 6pm arrival time.   Activities include not only zipwire, archery, climbing or abseiling, obstacle challenge, laser games and campfire with firelighting but also other activities such as low ropes, shelter building, a nightwalk or raft building. Our instructors will take you through your programme on arrival

  • Option to upgrade your programme to include watersports on selected dates – contact us for details

  • Two night's accommodation in our standard accommodation or adventure lodges. The price of your adventure varies by accommodation type and the size of your group.  We have options for sleeping from 2 to 16 people so why not come with extended family and friends and share larger accommodation?

  • Five meals – Dinner on your first night, three hearty meals to fuel the day’s activities on day two (including evening barbecue by the campfire) and breakfast before the final morning’s activities. There is also the option to have lunch before you depart at a supplementary cost. 

  • Use of our cosy, communal yurt with a log fire in cold weather and tea and coffee facilities making it a great base for relaxing or playing games in the evening. Or in April and early May, hang out in our Eco Cabin beside the pond.
