Norfolk Lakes Adventure Centre will 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 will offer 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.

Teacher Reviews for Manor Adventure

five star review by Barnes Wallis Academy
“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”

“My favourite part of the trip was raft building, because we got to try new things and I had never done this before”

“I liked being able to live with people I don’t usually hang around with and become friends”

“I learnt that you work better when working in a team and I learnt that I can do things I didn't know I could do.”

five star review by Ashfield School
“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!”

five star review by Gelli Primary

five star review by Cardinal Newan High School
