  • Adventure Holidays at Windmill Hill

Windmill Hill, PGL's home in East Sussex.

Windmill Hill is based around an impressive Grade 2 listed Mansion House, set in 21 acres of grounds on the Sussex Downs. Only 2 hours from central London, 1 hour from the M25, 45 minutes from Brighton and 1 hour from the Channel Tunnel.

PGL Windmill Hill has undergone £7 million investment under our ownership and offers modern lodge-style accommodation and a host of purpose built- activity bases including a large indoor sports hall and other facilities.


Accommodation is in new lodges which offer 5 or 6 bedded en suite rooms. All accommodation is in the grounds of the main house.


A fantastic range of new activity bases are available on site. The centre boasts a large sports hall, sports pitches and lakes for raft building. Plus it has its very own heated outdoor swimming pool as well as a recreation and shop area.

Fuel for LIFE!
Fun may be important, but so is food, and we want to inspire children into a healthier lifestyle that includes a tasty, balanced diet. We work closely with leading catering organisations to ensure our food is the best it can be and our dining rooms are fun, active places where it’s good to refuel during a busy fun-packed day.

From fussy eaters to growing appetites!
No-one should leave our dining room hungry so we try to offer a range of different and nutritious hot food to suit all appetites.There is unlimited access to the salad bar and bread basket and children can help themselves to fruit. Our buffet style restaurant means that children can ‘mix and match’ the items they love most. Our Group leaders are on hand to help and will look out for anyone who can’t find anything on the menu that they enjoy.

If necessary our catering teams will be more than happy to prepare something special.

Allergies, intolerances and other dietary requirements
A vegetarian alternative can always be provided on all our holidays, and we can accommodate most special diets required on medical or religious grounds, just let us know when you book.

Keeping hydrated
Water, squash, tea and coffee are available with all meals and children are encouraged to refill their water bottles for regular use throughout the day. There are also water fountains available around the centre.
