Family adventure breaks in South Yorkshire

Go wild with the whole family and embark on a mix of high adrenaline activities and family challenges at Dearne Valley in South Yorkshire with our one night or two night family adventure breaks. 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.
