We have special packages for school and community groups, meaning you can choose to stay from one night to as long as you like in Gibside's cosy accommodation.

The bunkhouse caters for large groups in comfortable dormitory style accommodation with space for up to 37 people.  


The Red Squirrel and Bat Dormitory sleep 16 in one and 17 in the other, plus adjoining leaders rooms, each sleeping two people, comfortably accommodating a full class of children and teachers. The Red Kite Room is multi-functional; it can be space for activities, relaxation or for self-catered dining.


Great news if you decide to stay overnight, all activities on offer to day visits are available, and there are special activities available to residential groups only, such as Wildlife Tracks & Signs and Night Walks.

Friendly, experienced staff will create a bespoke itinerary for your stay to meet your groups needs and ensure you all have a memorable action packed stay.
