Delamere, which was formally a Youth Hostel, sits in the heart of Delamere Forest and it is well known for its homely appeal.

Our Delamere Centre is ideally located for immediate and safe access to several areas of Delamere Forest, without having to walk along busy roads. We work alongside Forestry England to provide activity areas in the local natural surroundings. Our centre and the area allows for activities such as orienteering, den building, survival skills, pond dipping, environmental games, forest art and walks during which pupils can study animal habitats and the different flora and fauna of the forest.

Children as young as reception age to Key stage 2 visit Conway Centres: Delamere for what may be their first stay away from home. The centre also lends itself to day visits, focusing on the forest environment and easily accessible, but exciting, activities.


Outdoors: Activities are integrated into the stunning local area.

Indoors: Homely appeal for younger children.

Other facilities: Dining ,chill-out areas and adventure playground

Security: The centre site is fully secure with boundary fencing and coded accommodation access.


We have a huge variety of activities to choose from, each designed to help strengthen relationships, learn new skills and build confidence.


Delamere accommodates up to 32 students and 10 staff, with 2 dormitories for students and 3 separate rooms for staff.

Champions Lodge is situated within its own private area in the grounds and is a fully accessible facility specially equipped for children with special needs (aged between 0-21 years) and is available for hire for short breaks for children and their families.
