Residential Groups

The Centre is set in the stunning surroundings of Torbay Geopark with easy access to both the land and sea. This enables us to provide a bespoke programme tailored specifically to meet your needs, selected from a wide range of outdoor adventurous activities.

The Centre is available all year round for week & weekend residential visits although the length of stay can vary according to the time of year and other bookings.

A maximum group size of up to 81 persons can be accommodated. This would typically comprise of up to 60 children/young people (i.e. 10 activity groups) with space for up to 21 staff/leaders.


Everything you need can be provided, including catering and activities, leaving you to concentrate on the needs of your group.


Devon and Torbay Councils recognise Grenville House as a leading provider of Outdoor Education in Devon and consequently we are one of only a handful of establishments recommended to Devon and Torbay schools. This significantly reduces the administration required to support a Devon school’s trip supported by the EVOLVE online booking system.


Our aim is to provide the experience that you require – so if we can we will. In order to find out just contact us with your enquiry.

Why stay at Grenville House?


Nestled cosily on the water’s edge, the historic fishing port of Brixham is only a 5 minute walk away along the pedestrianised promenade, with the beach and Breakwater a similar distance in the opposite direction.


A key feature of any stay at Grenville House is the welcoming atmosphere generated by our friendly, approachable staff who do everything possible to make the Centre feel like home. Unless you have chosen to share the Centre, the main building is exclusive to the resident group providing peace of mind for the lead staff.


We accommodate all types of client groups although the majority of groups are year 5 and 6 primary schools. Most choose to follow a full Outdoor Education programme as a vehicle for personal development, which combined with the residential experience creates the perfect base for enhancing life-skills. Whatever you choose to do we will make it safe, positive and most importantly fun.
