Norfolk County Council (NCC) have been conducting a review of outdoor learning in Norfolk, which included looking at our role as a provider of outdoor learning at Holt Hall.
NCC have now made the decision to cease the direct delivery of day visits and residential visits from Holt Hall with immediate effect. The Hall and estate are now closed and will be placed for sale.
We would like to thank all of our customers for their valued custom over the years and hope that going forward everyone is able to secure an alternative high-quality outdoor learning service.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."
