Holt Hall closed in March, in line with Government direction at the time. With the easing of the lockdown, the council is prioritising the opening of its council buildings. Holt Hall currently remains closed.
Norfolk County Council were carrying out a review of outdoor learning in Norfolk which was paused in March. This included looking at our role as a provider of outdoor learning, including our role running Holt Hall. We are now restarting and adapting this review.
For these reasons, we will be unable to take any new bookings for before November 2020 and we can only accept provisional bookings for December 2020 and beyond. We cannot guarantee that these will be confirmed until a decision about the future of the service, which we now expect to be in Autumn 2020. There is the possibility that provisional bookings are not able to be confirmed.
Following any decisions, we will update you as soon as possible regarding bookings for 2021 and beyond.
We are engaging with schools during this review and may be in contact with you for your views on outdoor learning in Norfolk.
Holt Hall specialises in using the environment to develop skills, increase knowledge and raise achievement. Set in woodland, lakes, fields, lawns and gardens, it provides a wealth of opportunities for learning outside the classroom. Offering both day visits and affordable residential experiences all year round, the centre provides a happy and stimulating learning environment.Find Out More

A fantastic residential trip the Hall staff were amazing, the activities ideal and the food brilliant. Our children and staff thoroughly enjoyed themselves and made many great memories. The children had all increased in independence, confidence and social skills by the time they returned. "
Residential stay Primary school, July 2019
A very warm welcome (as always!). Children who love science but find it particularly difficult to write their understanding down, excelled themselves in lots of sessions verbally. As always, the food was delicious and nothing was too much trouble. All rooms were spotless on arrival. Extremely friendly staff!"
Harleston CA Primary Academy - April 2019
The setting was delightful and calming and the staff complemented this. The catering staff were very responsive to changing need whilst we were there. This was greatly appreciated."
Churchill Park Academy - February 2019
A heartfelt huge thank you to you and all your staff for last week: we had the best residential ever! The food, programme, teaching, learning...and the food were all second to none! The children haven't stopped talking about their experience."
Primary School - October 2018
Children with low self-esteem and/or with anger management have benefited from group work and adventurous learning. Great to have home cooked food and fresh produce. A fantastic visit - everyone is friendly helpful and relaxed."
