Experience the magic of Barretstown!

Outside of our camp programme, Barretstown with it’s mix of modern and historic facilities can provide the perfect venue for your corporate event, team building or meeting.

Take a Tour

Whether it’s a conference, team building day, company meeting or a treat for your hard working team, Barretstown can deliver the ideal balance of facilities and activities to meet your requirements no matter how big, small or unusual.

Please be aware that Barretstown can only facilitate groups when we do not have children and families on site. The months of May and September are typically very busy for team building visits, as the Summer has very limited availability because of our camp schedule. We will do our best to accommodate your group but the more notice you can give us the more likely we can secure a date for your team.
