About Newby Wiske Hall

Close to Northallerton, just off the A1(M), Newby Wiske Hall is conveniently located for groups in the north of England. It’s less than two hours’ drive from Newcastle and the North East, Sheffield and South Yorkshire.

During the next six months we will be turning the hall and its grounds into a residential PGL adventure centre, full of exciting adventure activities, and including a sports hall and en suite accommodation for group members and single en suite rooms for group leaders.

Group leaders will have the opportunity to inspect the site for themselves in the near future; please check our website for dates.

Opening in spring 2018, we expect demand for Newby Wiske Hall to be high, so to avoid disappointment you can reserve you places for next year now by making a no-obligation provisional booking for your group. Please contact us for availability.
