The Willow Tree Centre is a multi purpose outdoor centre set in 15 acres of private grounds in an attractive rural setting, bordered by woodland and within easy access of London. The varied facilities also feature access for those with physical disabilities.
Opened in 2000 by HRH Princess Margaret, the Centre is a popular location for Guide groups and other youth organisations including Scouts, Police Cadets, Girls Brigade and Duke of Edinburgh expeditions wanting to take advantage of the three large, fully equipped campsites and local schools looking to expand their classroom activities into the great outdoors.
There are a wide range of activities available including an assault course, low level challenge course, archery, night line, tunnelling and horizontal climbing wall as well as a number of outdoor activities and sports.
Each of our campsites includes a separate wash-room block with showers and each site has its own wet weather barn shelter, wood shelter, water tap, fire place and BBQ. There is a separate disabled toilet.
Bordering Ruislip Woods, an ancient woodland covering over 700 acres, the Willow Tree Centre has space to accommodate over 1,000 visitors and offers you an ideal and safe opportunity to explore nature within easy reach of London.
The Centre has parking spaces for 50 vehicles and can accommodate coaches & minibuses.
The main residential block can sleep 33 people and our recently refurbished function room can accommodate 80 people on a daily basis making it an attractive venue for businesses wanting to run day meetings, conferences and training courses. If you are looking for a non-residential venue we can offer you Pine Lodge, our training and environmental building. Again this is fully furnished with all equipment required for training and corporate meetings.
Willow Tree house offers rooms with twin beds and en-suite facilities for group leaders and the two dormitories are furnished with substantial pine bunk beds. The kitchen is well equipped with two large cookers, fridges, freezer and double sink unit.
The function room is large and bright with field views and floor to ceiling windows with shutters to allow for audio and visual usage. Chairs available to seat 80 people and projection screens, white boards, projector, flip boards and Wi-Fi are all available.
For those wishing to relax, we have a Tranquil Area where you can take in the views of the surrounding countryside.
