From splashing in the river in their wellies to braving the dizzying heights of a rock climbing wall, each Go Beyond break is packed with activities intended to encourage self-belief and inspire adventure. By getting out and getting involved, Go Beyond’s biggest hope is for each child to go home knowing they can achieve more than they ever thought possible, inspired by what the world can offer them, and what they in turn can offer the world. Go Beyond is a Registered charity in England & Wales (1080953).

Disabled Access

Essentially wheelchair access is possible, but not optimal. 

The garden & ground floor of the house are accessible, the garden can be accessed via our courtyard and side entrance and we have a disabled access ramp to the rear of the property. Though there is gravel as well as grass so the amount of garden which can be enjoyed depends on the type of wheelchair. Our Ladies loo (which is on the ground floor) has plenty of space and a grab rail.
