Robinwood currently has three Activity Centres; one of which Dobroyd Castle is located in the south Pennines market town of Todmorden, benefitting from excellent transport links. Our second centre, Barhaugh Hall, is situated on the Cumbria/Northumberland border in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Our third and newest centre, Maes y Nant, is on the outskirts of market and Welsh border town Wrexham.
Dobroyd Castle is set high above Todmorden enjoying some fantastic views of the surrounding area. It is a historic listed building with wonderful architecture. Todmorden has plenty of affordable housing, shops, restaurants, a market and other amenities including a sports centre. The quirky town of Hebden Bridge is nearby and Manchester and Leeds are easily accessible by direct train links.
Barhaugh Hall is situated in beautiful countryside on the Cumbria / Northumbria border in one of the last truly unspoiled rural areas in England,. The town of Alston is small but picturesque, with shops, cafes, a garage, supermarket and other amenities. In summer many tourists visit Alston, drawn by its quaint cobbled streets, and proximity to many beautiful areas to walk and cycle.
Maes-y-Nant dates back to the late Victorian era. It’s name when translated means ‘house by a stream’. Just 35 miles from the Snowdonia National Park and a stones throw from the marvellous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. Wrexham is both a launch pad for adventurous activities and a wonderful place to explore in its own right.
