Activity Breaks

At Nutley Edge, we run holidays for people with learning disabilities or autism spectrum conditions. These are our specialist activity breaks

The activity breaks give you the chance to get some country air, make friends and try new activities, to get away from the daily routine and have a proper break.

Each activity break is run by onsite activity leaders and Outward support staff, and can accommodate people with a range of needs. Our guests have been getting involved in sports, art, music, visiting local attractions, photography, nature trails, baking, pampering, tie-dye and many other countryside pursuits.

This year our breaks are filling up quicker than ever, so please get in touch if you know of anyone who may enjoy an activity break with us. We have also added an extra activity break during the summer due to popular demand.
