At Juniper Hall, all of our food is prepared using fresh, seasonal ingredients with an emphasis on providing healthy and hearty meals for all of our guests. We use local, reputable suppliers who provide ingredients of the highest quality. We provide a variety of hot, wholesome meals including a vegetarian option every day. We also offer homemade cakes as an afternoon snack. We strive to maintain the high standards of our five star food hygiene rating at all times. If you have any special food requirements please let a member of staff know before you arrive at Juniper Hall, we are able to cater for all requirements with appropriate notice.

Don’t forget to bring a lunch box and a flask for any day trips out.


The Juniper Hall team believe that all our guests should feel welcome and at home. We strive to achieve the best and that’s why we have friendly staff that are always on hand to help, especially for our younger guests who may be on their first trip away from home.

Juniper Hall has two accommodation blocks; The Main House and separate Cedars building. Altogether we can accomodate a maximum of one hundred and thirty guests. This is spread across six twin rooms, twelve triple rooms, two single rooms and ten dormitory rooms.  All rooms have sinks and have bathroom facilities close by. On the ground floor we have four rooms with wheelchair access, giving a total of nine easily accessible rooms. Juniper Hall will be undergoing refurbishment in Autumn 2018 which will see an increase in the number of en-suite rooms on offer.

The main building has two common rooms, one for students and one for adult groups. The adult lounge has comfortable chairs and a television. The student common room has table football, giant Jenga, an air hockey table, a television and board games. Hot and cold drinks facilities are located across the Centre.
