Maes-y-Nant dates back to the late Victorian era when it was built as a private house in around 1870. It’s name when translated means ‘house by a stream’. In 1959 Maes-y-Nant was sold and converted to a hotel with many of its original features being preserved to this day.


Maes-y-Nant stands in 8 acres of land and lies close to the English/Welsh border. Close enough to big cities for easy access, but set in a beautiful rural area.


We have great indoor provision at Maes-y-Nant for high activities; an impressive climbing wall, crate challenge and trapeze (also known as leap of faith). Indoor provision means that these high activities can continue whatever the weather so we can run courses all year round for schools.


There are further indoor areas in the grounds for the Dungeon and Piranha Pool; wonderful themed problem solving areas developed by our staff team. Outside we have a purpose built high wires Challenge Course along with Giant Swing, Zipwire  and a small lake for Canoeing and Raft Building sessions.


Wrexham is the largest town in the north of Wales and has many great facilities, including shopping centre, cinema and leisure centre. Situated between the Welsh mountains and the lower Dee valley and alongside the border with England.


In the mid-19th century Wrexham had 19 breweries, benefitting from good underground water supplies. In 1882 Central Road became the first brewery in the UK to produce lager beer.


Being only 13 miles south of Chester, Wrexham was able to grow as market town on the cross-road between England and Wales. Just 35 miles from the Snowdonia National Park and a stone’s 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.
