We bring our SU Holiday teams to Alltnacriche for a relaxing housparty weekend each January, just to spend time together, enjoy each other’s company and make the most of this beautiful place.
We run two SU Holidays during the year and invite the team members from both events to come and get away from it all for a weekend break. January is a great time to do this. It’s a “low season” weekend and Alltnacriche therefore offers a reduced rate, which makes the whole thing very affordable.
We like the homely feel of the centre. The woodburning stove makes it a cosy place to hang out, even in the depths of winter, so it is an ideal venue for this kind of weekend. It really feels like you are staying in a big house – not an institution!
We also love the games hall and table tennis and organise things like a badminton tournament or a table tennis tournament during the weekend. Some people choose to go on a big walk up the hill behind Alltnacriche – others choose to do a bit more relaxing!
The cooking facilities are great. The kitchens are always clean and well organised and our cooks really enjoy producing lovely home cooked food here for everyone to enjoy.
Some team members have children, so they come along too, and can play safely outside, enjoying all the open space.
The weekend gives us time to get to know each other better, relax together, chat about camps past and future, worship, pray and go to church together on the Sunday.
We love it!
