This term Form 6 enjoy a week’s residential in North Yorkshire. Base camp is the wonderful Cober Hill, an old Victorian property now used as an educational and residential centre. Cober Hill is nestled in the pretty village of Cloughton in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and Heritage Coast.
We start the week with a visit to How Stean Gorge to try some bridge abseiling and caving, a new experience for many of us! We also enjoy some fell walking up on the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors at Roseberry Topping. The summit provides a great photo opportunity! Everybody had very tired feet at the end of this trek.
Our visit the North Yorkshire Bird of Prey Centre enables us to learn about the many aspects of falconry. The handlers show us some amazing owl and hawk displays. We use the centre as a base for further study whilst we are here.
Our next destination is the Activity Centre at Dalby Forest in the heart of the National Park. There are endless walking and cycle trails here and it’s easy to get lost in the depths of the forest (although hopefully this won’t be anyone in our party!).
One of our favourite trips on our Yorkshire residential is a visit to the seaside. Scarborough beach is the perfect place for a dip and a bit of ice cream! After such a busy week we think we’ve deserved it.
Our journey home at the end of the week is via the wonderful Flamingo Land for a bit of fairground fun. Everybody agrees this is the highlight of the trip!
Thank you to all at Cober Hill and the amazing guides and instructors who have helped make this such a brilliant week!
