With a well appointed clubhouse, a whole range of equipment and easy access onto the water, the beauty of Bartley is that you can arrive, get kitted up in our waterproofs and wetsuits and be on the water within minutes, maximising your time participating in activities to ensure you get the most from your time with us.

A Residential Adventure

Of the many places in the UK for watersports, Poole Harbour offers possibly the safest and most idyllic location, offering a secure and happy setting for children to experience a residential trip away from home. With space for adventure, we offer diverse and challenging experiences which will inspire and excite your pupils.

Residential trips can help children of all ages develop independence and bond with their peers and teachers in informal settings. They provide a wonderful opportunity for children to begin their journey as independent people with lives outside their own homes. A residential week with Rockley Adventure provides valuable opportinities for promoting teamwork, social skills and communication skills. Personal achievement combined with many new experiences in such a unique environment can be very rewarding and boost self-esteem and confidence.

Inspiring Healthier Lives

Healthy eating contributes significantly to the lives of children and young people. At Rockley, we ensure your pupils receive three healthy, balanced meals a day.

All our food is prepared on-site at the Rockley Lodge by our own catering staff. Ingredients are fresh and locally sourced giving each child all the energy they need to enjoy their action-packed adventure. All our guests get provided with their essential five-a-day. At Rockley Adventure the only food choice is a healthy choice.

The meal times are an important social aspect of the trip. At Rockley Adventure we ensure there is adequate time available to eat their meal and chat about the activities and learning that the children have experienced in the day.


Every Child (Really) Matters

Our UK residential activity holidays provide an opportunity for your pupils to gain experience staying away from home. All the while trying new activities, expanding their skills and horizons and developing themselves through a variety of fun activities. We are firm believer that "activity + adventure = healthy lifestyles" and our activity holidays help to empower children to develop key skills and personal confidence in a fun and safe environment.

All our programmes can be tailored to specifically meet the requirements of your group. We often work with Group Leaders to put together a more bespoke programme to fulfil specfic aims and objectives. If you have any questions about our activity programmes just give us a call.
