  • Marchants Hill for Youth Groups

Youth residential centre in Surrey

Marchants Hill residential adventure centre is close to London, but once you’re here you’ll think you’re in the middle of the countryside. 

Located on the edge of an area of outstanding natural beauty, known as The Devil’s Punchbowl, youth groups will find plenty of activities to enjoy including watersports on the purpose-built lake.


The sports hall and common room provide fantastic indoor spaces for evening activities or for groups to just chill-out after a busy day of adventure sessions.

There’s a choice of en suite accommodation, in chalets within the centre grounds and in Bethany House, a converted convent building which can house up to 94 guests – ideal for sole occupancy if you’re a larger youth group.


At Marchants Hill, your youth group can stay in lodge style accommodation or at Bethany House, a converted convent providing self-contained accommodation with a capacity of 94.
