Do as much or as little as you like - it is Christmas!

Join us for our South BIG Event! We will be having a truly memorable OutdoorLads Christmas! 

BIG South Christmas returns in style as we make our location even more awesome than previous years!  Simon will host you in the cosiness of the old vicarage with the two comfy lounges, a big dining room, masses of bedrooms space (15 rooms spread across the building!), a peaceful location and lovely local walks it is perfect place to spend a weekend.

We will have all of the usual laughs, games and a belly or two's full of home cooked food.  If you fancy walking, then our setting is perfect right in the heart of the Wye Valley.  Alternatively, put your feet up with some mulled cider and read a book or take in a film or play a board game.

This event promises lots of fun activities, Secret Santa, entertainment to leave you rolling - and a starry setting among friends, rolling countryside and song, to remember the true spirit of Christmas. Oh and bring your most festive / scary Xmas jumper!

There will be a selection of walks - ranging from gentle and pretty through challenging and scenic. A chance to visit rivers and canals, or just stroll the woods and vales so abundant to this area. We are in excellent cycling country, with some beautiful routes both on and off road. 

All these great day events followed by an evening of board games, secret Santa and of course munching on dinner leftovers and nattering on all things. So there will be a number of activities with something to tempt everyone!

The high point of the weekend will of course be the unrivaled three course Christmas dinner, a welcome feast at the end of a long day out and about! We have use of a large dining hall, which we will liberally decorate in the brightest of Xmas themes.

Step out the front door and you're guaranteed a good day out... but you may find it hard to leave the welcoming lounge of comfy arm chairs and the great OutdoorLads festive cheer!
