Parson House facilities are excellent the food is great staff are the best and very friendly all the activities are very good and really challening for the children the school always have a good time.
What an excellent time we had at Parson House last summer! Our Year 4 children loved the activities, which the instructors made sure were fun and exciting. We will definitely be returning.
During 2010, Crewe Climbing & Potholing Club have used Parson House Outdoor Pursuits Centre for 5 caving courses covering rope techniques used in caving, and ranging from basic procedures to more complex rescue systems. All these courses took place on the climbing wall – the facility being very suitable for the purpose as it offers plenty of space for demonstration and practice and can accommodate two courses, catering for up to six trainees, at any one time. CCPC found the domestic facilities (parking, loos etc) and the bolted apparatus on the climbing wall perfectly adequate and at a reasonable cost, and will certainly be using Parson House again in the future.
The instructors who lead the challenging activities are amazing with the children. Throughout every activity that we did they encouraged, supported and enjoyed being with the children.
