Hesley Wood Guide House

PLEASE NOTE – there is currently only 1 cooker in the kitchen (the blue one on the right has been removed). New video coming soon!

Hesley Guide House is a single storey building located near to the main car park and reception area in the Scout Activity Centre at Hesley Wood in Chapeltown, South Yorkshire. It is conveniently located near the M1, Sheffield and Rotherham making it easy to get to and from anywhere in the UK.

Guide House was originally opened in 1978, but after extensive renovation made possible by grants from the National Lottery’s “Reaching Communities” Fund it was reopened in September 2011. It sleeps a maximum of 35 and is fully accessible for people with disabilities.

At the rear of the house is an area which can be used to for outdoor activities or camping and a variety of outdoor play equipment is available for your use.

Please note that trailer tents, caravans, motor homes and camper vans are not allowed to use this space.

Hesley Wood’s activities are available through the Scout office and are staffed by qualified and experienced instructors. All safety equipment is provided and regularly tested to national standards. For further information contact the centre.
