At Nutley Edge, we run holidays for people with learning disabilities or Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC). These are our specialist Activity Breaks and are run by Outward, a London-based charity that has been successfully supporting people with learning disabilities and ASC for over forty years.

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 on-site 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.
