Site facilities

Caldecotte Xperience is housed in the George Amey Centre, situated in the leafy village of Simpson, within the boundary of Milton Keynes. There is limited parking, which is gated and can be secured overnight.

The wheelchair accessible centre is situated in 24 acres of land offering, beautiful views of Bow Brickhill woods, an extensive camping area, climbing facilities, an artificial caving site as well as a permanent orienteering course and archery field.

Residential facilities

The George Amey Centre is the residential facility, with bunk rooms and camping facilities.

There are additional male and female toilets with shower facilities as well as a disabled toilet. 

The centre boasts a large kitchen, with two electric cookers, giving you eight hobs and two large ovens, large fridge and separate freezer, microwave, toasters, double sinks and cooking utensils and crockery etc for you to enjoy your own self-catered stay.

There is a large conference style room which can be divided to accommodate dining or evening activities. It has several folding dining tables and chairs to accommodate eating or educational activities and the centre frequently hosts conferences and training days. This large conference room also has whiteboard and projector screen as well as flip charts to make your conference or stay tailored to suit your needs. You may bring your own laptop or projector, but both are available on request, subject to availability.

A lounge is also available at the centre, which accommodates soft armchairs with TV with DVD only.

Free WiFi: ask for the connection details when you arrive.

All conference rooms are subject to availability, but we try to make sure that you have exclusive use of the centre during your stay.

Camping facilities

Outside we can accommodate up to 150 in tents or our very own tipi village and offer outside showers and toilet facilities. We also have outside running hot and cold water for washing up and food preparation. There are facilities to have a barbecue by prior arrangement. The outside space is ideal for games and other activities which you may bring to enjoy during your stay with us: for example cricket, football, parachute games, art sketching and story telling can all take place in the grounds. We also now offer a fridge, toasters, use of a marquee and tables and chairs can be made available to increase the comfort of outdoor mealtimes.

Additional Accommodation

If your party size is too large for the centre you can also enjoy the beautiful yurts for your stay. The yurt complex accommodates up to 25 comfortably, has access facilities and is also a self catering or catered facility. We have groups who have guests staying in both the GAC and the yurts and this has proved very popular indeed.

Equipment

There is a range of specialist clothing and equipment available for use during your activities including helmets, wetsuits, spray tops and waterproofs. These are used subject to weather conditions and for your safety. Residential visitors should bring their own waterproofs for general activities as these are not available for caving or as rainwear. A suggested list of clothing is available on the website.
