Marrick Priory is a registered charity (No. 1139240) and operates as an outdoor education and residential centre, providing outdoor activities in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, with the River Swale on our doorstep we are ideally located to help you make the most of the great outdoors.
Our activities include: rock climbing, abseiling, open canoeing, kayaking, caving, ropes course, zip wire, orienteering and team building we can tailor your programme to suit your timetable, aims and objectives.
We welcome groups of all ages and backgrounds: school groups, adult groups, youth projects, special needs and interest groups. Each group has sole residential use of the Priory during their visit.
The Priory offers sole occupancy for groups and is equipped to cater for groups up to 46 in number (extra capacity can be arranged if need). We pride ourselves on the quality and quantity of our home cooking and we are more than happy to cater for special dietary requirements.
We also offer day activities at a range of locations in North Yorkshire and places further afield, such as the Lake District.
We believe that each guest is an individual with their own unique gifts and abilities. We seek to encourage and develop self respect, respect for others and for the natural environment we share. This is achieved through a range of activities that promote participation, teamwork, personal challenge, independence, friendship and personal responsibility.
We believe that every person should have the opportunity to benefit from the ‘Marrick Priory experience’ and have designated a Bursary Fund to financially assist individuals and groups who might otherwise be deprived of this opportunity.
