Trewern Kit list


Here is a list of the things that you will need to bring to Trewern. You shouldn't need to buy anything new for the trip as clothes will often get very dirty. Old clothes that are practical are much better than new fashionable clothes.

Children should bring a water bottle to be refilled for the week. Alternatively, they can purchase a Trewern water bottle if they wish.


Please label clothes for identification, there is always a pile of unclaimed items at the end of the week. The house has a drying room that dries clothes overnight; we will often wear clothes again for activities.

  • Spray deodorants can set off the alarms so do not bring these.
  • Do not bring hair straighteners as they are a fire risk.
  • Electronic equipment is not to be brought; it will distract from the experiences that we are trying to provide.


Any medicine should be passed on to staff before departure, do not put any in your child's suitcase/bag.

Children will not have the opportunity to spend any money other than in the souvenir shop run by staff. Children are allowed a maximum of £10 to spend. Any money should be given to staff before departure.


Children should pack their own cases/bags and a list of items is often useful.


Children are responsible for all the items that they bring - we will not be held responsible for any loss or damages.
