About us

What We Can Offer

Mill on the Brue Outdoor Activity Centre is definitely different from other activity centres! We are a family run, not for profit, educational and environmental organisation which has been inspiring and educating children and adults since 1982.

We provide courses for school, youth, special needs and adult groups, summer camps for unaccompanied children and outdoor activity days for all. Open from the end of January to the beginning of December, there are over 40 exciting, outdoor adventure, educational & environmental activities on our 25 acre site in the heart of beautiful Somerset.

Using qualified and highly experienced HR trainers we also run company team building, management training courses and company challenge days, as well as Stag and Hen activity days. Additionally the award winning Longhouse, provides space for 120 people to dine whilst overlooking the beautiful Brue valley. The Longhouse, with adjacent vaulted wine cellar, is licensed to hold civil weddings and is the perfect wedding venue throughout the year.
